Crazy, Mixed Up Love

SUOBeeTime again for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is Birds, Bees and Butterflies!  I bet you can’t guess which one I decided to do!  LOL!!!

My first instinct on this one was to use butterflies.  Why?  I just LOVE butterflies!  No…really I do.  Then I decided I wanted to use some ‘stuff’ that is retiring and the cute little bee from Crazy, Mixed Up Love came to mind.  Then I thought how cool it would be to use the Hive Framelit and THEN I decided to also use the Modern Medley dsp that is retiring!  So I put them all together and here’s my card!

Here’s the details:

  • Daffodil Delight – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Modern Medley print 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layered onto Basic Black 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 and add to card front.
  • Cut out Hive from Daffodil Delight and trim down to 3 1/8 x 3 7/8, Layer onto newsprint Modern Medley print using dimensionals then layer onto Basic Black 3 1/4 x 4.  Add this to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Add a little banner (yep more Modern Medley dsp 5/8 x 1 1/2.  Tie a bow using White Baker’s Twine onto a Crushed Curry button and add using a glue dot.
  • Stamp bee using StazOn on Very Vanilla, punch out using 1 1/4″ circle punch.  Layer onto 1 3/8″ Daffodil Delight Circle then add this to Basic Black Label Bracket punch using dimensionals.  Add this to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Color the bee using Daffodil delight then add Dazzling Details to the ‘heart/wings’ to finish it off.

Oh…this just turned out SOOOOO cute!

    Mary, thank you for sharing this darling card. Love the general theme of the card and really appreciate the use of the hexagon hive EF with newsprint behind it.
    You are so clever in your stamping!
