May Your Day Bloom With Happiness

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for August, I finish off the month with one last challenge.

Shape Up - Shaped cards are so much fun and with dies these days can be so easy to create … so for our challenge this week create a shaped card

The hardest part of this challenge was deciding what to create, I had sooooo many options. Finally I decided to create a Flower Pot Card.

The flower pot, pull tab insert and flowers are all from Honey Bee Stamps Flower Pot Card die set, using dies makes creating shaped cards even easier.  I die cut the flower pot and pull tab from burgundy cardstock and the front of the flower pot again from patterned paper and then adhered them together to form a flower pot pocket.

I decorated the top of the pull tab insert using the flowers from the set.

I added the "Bloom" sentiment using Honey Bee Stamps Bloom die set to the front of the flower pot and then added two stamped sentiments above and below that sentiment using stamps from the coordinating Bloom Sentiment Clear Stamp set. I die cut these using one of the sentiment strips from the Banner Builder die set.

To finish off my card I added two bees which are a little freebie I received with a previous Honey Bee Stamps order to the top of the flowers using acetate so it appears like they are flying around the flowers, and a third bee above the sentiment.

On the pull tab insert, I added a sentiment from Stampendous.

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.

Such a sweet card - I especially like the bees on their acetate strips.
