This card came together rather quickly. I started by stamping my images and gathering my dies. I did this to be sure that my dies would fit around my images and my card. I had the idea in my head so I was really hoping that everything would fit. Gladly it did.
Next, I ran the Honeycomb die using an embossing mat through my die cutting machine with medium yellow cardstock. I wanted the embossed look not to cut all the way through. Then, I used the hexagon dies in the two sizes I want and cut them from the honeycomb background. I set them to the side to color my image.
Once, I had my image colored I wanted the cool honeycomb background to show behind the bear and bee so I trimmed away the area behind them. *note: you can use scissors for this part - I just used my craft knife. I also trimmed my card front panels the white cardstock measures 4" X 5-1/4" and the medium gray is 4-1/4" x 51/2" (same as my card base).
Next, I adhered the card front to the mat and then the hexagons. The larger one for the image and smaller one for the sentiment; which are mounted onto low profile foam adhesive.
Then, I added a few confetti sequins and flower sequins. to the center of the flowers, I added a tim=ny black heart. I also added a few dots of metallic gold gel pen to the image flowers and some white highlights to the bee and bear.
