To create my card start with a 6-inch square card.
Step 1. Cut a 5 3/4 inch square piece of white card stock, that will be used for the background.
Step 2. Use Susan's Earth & Sky Stencil to sponge blue ink over the cloud stencil onto the top half of the white card stock.
Step 3. Use the Adventure Edges die set and die cut a green 'hilly' edge that will cover the lower half of the card. Attach the edge to the lower portion of the card.
Step 4. Use Joset's Bee die set to die cut one Bee. Use Vellum to die cut the wings. Assemble.
Step 5. Use Joset's Bee Hive die set to die cut the bee hive. Glue the pieces together.
Step 6. Use the CountryScapes Hollyhock die set to die cut pieces for the hollyhock. Shape with Susan's Flower Tool Kit and assemble. Use yellow Prills in the center of each flower.
Step 7. Use the CountryScapes Clematis die set to die cut the white flowers. Shape the flowers using Susan's Flower Tool Kit. Add Prills to the centers of the flowers.
Step 8. For the flower stems for the white flowers, use the Garden Notes Lavender die set. Use only the lower portion of this die cut and attach the white flowers. Using the lower section of the Lavender die cut will create a wide bushy flower 'bush'.
Step 9. Use the CountryScapes Garden Edges - Hyacinth die set and create the purple hyacinth edge. Cut two hyacinth off to separate the flowers for the bottom edge of the card.
Step 10. Use the Adventure Edges die set and die cut two strips of grass.
Step 11. Use the Pair of Leaves l die set and die cut one set of leaves. These leaves will resemble a bush beside the bee hive.
Step 12. Use the Leafy Branch die set to die cut one branch. A small portion of these leaves will be used behind the white flower bush.
Step 13. Use the Rainbow Sky die set to die cut two clouds and one sun. Lightly sponge blue ink around the edges of the clouds and yellow ink on the edges of the sun. Attach these pieces to the top of the card, over the sponged cloud sky.
Step 14. Use the Bee Sentiments stamp set and stamp the sentiment, using VersaFine black ink and clear emboss. Die cut using the Stitched Fishtail Banner die set. Sponge yellow ink around the edges. Use another larger Stitched Fishtail Banner die and die cut one black banner slightly larger. Glue the pieces together. Cut the left edge at an angle and attach over the lower edge of the die cut sun.
Step 15. Assemble all the die cut pieces, as shown, to complete the scene.
