Bee My Valentine Sweet as Honey

Bee My Valentine Sweet as Honey

My creative brain is just “buzzing” with all kinds of card-making ideas for Stampin’ Up!’s Bee My Valentine Bundle. The bee images and sentiments are just so whimsical — perfect for Valentine cards and beyond. Find this bundle in the brand-new January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. See this blog post for other super cute ideas to make your own Valentine cards.  

Bee My Valentine Sweet as Honey

Today, I share a quick card idea using the bundle. Here are a few details about it:

  • Thick Basic White Card Stock Base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Daffodil Delight design from the Bee Mine 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Basic Black Card Stock die cut with the rounded edge from the Basic Borders Dies and embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder (earn this and a coordinating stamp set free during SaleABration with a $100 order).
  • “You’re As Sweet as Honey” sentiment heat embossed in white on Basic Black Card Stock
  • Two bees created with the stamp set and coordinating Bee Builder Punch. I stamped the bee stripes with Memento Ink, then stamped the body with Daffodil Delight ink. You could save a step and stamp the bee stripes on Daffodil Delight or Crushed Curry Card Stock. 
  • Punched the hearts with Vellum Card Stock to create the wings.
  • Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems (black)

Card 2

The card above features a favorite layout: using three strips of Designer Series Paper measuring 1 1/2 x 3 3/4  Do you notice the new circle die? That’s a piece from the Everyday Details Dies. I love how it layers so nicely on the Stylish Shape Circle.
