Bee-lated Birthday

Made this card for a dear friend’s mother, who is a real sweetheart! :-)

Inside of card:-

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Cartridges – see below
Martha Stewart Corner Punch – Eyelet Lace
Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch – Flower Bed
Glue – regular; ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock – blue; white (for the Cricut Imagine)
Corner rounder – Corner Stone by EK Success
Rhinestones – on bee and butterfly

Cricut Cartridges
Disney Pooh & Friends – bee hive
Disney Happily Ever After – tree
Paisley – bee
Wall Décor & More - butterfly

This card was completely created on the Cricut Imagine, flood-filling designs, using the regular Cricut cartridges. I used the “Color Cop” to obtain the RGB codes for the hive via DisneyClipart and mimicked the same colors in the Cricut handbook for the li’l bee. What an awesome way of getting the exact colours. No fumbling thru coloured cardstock to find the right shades --- the Cricut Imagine does it all!

I attached the branch w/ the bee hive to the main tree. By using the same color, via “Color Cop”, for both the branch and the tree, it makes it seem like the branch w/ the bee hive was actually part of the tree. :-)

The inside of the card was created using the Flower Bed punch, punching it on both sides of the paper, to create a double border. Rhinestones were placed on the butterfly, which was glued to the border. The sentiment was computer-generated. Used some cute fonts:-

“LMS Spelling Bee” --- gives the look of a bee buzzing along. You can see a li’l bee attached to the “W”.
“Hunny's Bees” – the first letter has a li’l bee attached to it, w/ the rest of the letters in a “flower”.

The rest of the words were done in “Tinker Toy”.

Hope she enjoys this card, as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you have a great day!
