Buzzing ByTo Say....

Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for August, Helen Cryer continues to bring us a fun challenge.

For our challenge this week Helen as asked us to ... Go 3D! Make a card that either Pops up, Stands Up, Flips, or has some other 3D element to it.

Of course this challenge is right up my alley as I LOVE creating 3D style cards!

For my card this week I have created a Pop Up card using the Lucy Label's Pop Up die set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs

To decorate my card I used the A Random Fan Sweet Honey Bee stamp set. 

I also used the Agatha Edges die set to create the fancy edge at the top and bottom of my card and to add the black flourish.

The flowers on the back of the card were made using Elizabeth Craft Designs Flower Set 3 and Big Flower Set using White & Yellow Velvet Adhesive Paper.

For the front of the card I added another flourish from the Agatha Edges die set. I also added a flower and sentiment.

Seeing the sentiment in the front is about buzzing I also added a bee using the Bee die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

    This is so fun! SO many great details in your 3D card … and you paired the yellow and black perfectly. Sometimes it's overpowering, but not when you do it!
