Honeycomb & Bees Thanks Card

I just recently got the SU! Honeycomb embossing folder and as soon as I got it I knew I wanted to pair it with a sweet bee stamp from a Hero Arts set I have.  I stamped the bees, die cut them, coloured the stripes with a Daffodil Delight marker and added Star Dust Stickles to their wings so they sparkle.  I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight CS, cut a section of honeycomb out and glued it to a white panel.  I stamped the sentiment,  matted and layered the white panel, added the ribbon and bow and attached the whole thing to the front of the card.  I then popped the bees up.

Here's the inside and the envelope flap with more cut out honeycomb and popped up bees.  I very rarely use yellow but I have to say I do like a little bit of it used together with black and white. Next time, I'm going to use some yellow Core'dinations CS with the honeycomb folder so I can scuff it and bring out the embossed detail, I think that will look good!

Hi Ruth, love the bee stamp - he looks great in the honeycomb embossing. For me it was a toss up between that folder and the clouds - the clouds won but I may just have to add the honeycomb to my next order! - Jacqueline xx
