Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a 5×7 card that features an interactive Flower Pot Card element on a one-layer panel. Paper pieced honey bees appear to be “floating” above the flower pot filled with pretty flowers. This card features lots of new stamps and dies from the new 4th BEEday Release from Honey Bee Stamps.

The background of the card was created by die cutting Blue Jay cardstock with a Scallop A7 rectangle die. This panel was matted on a white 5×7 piece of cardstock for the base of the card.
The flower pot and insert were die cut from Adriatic cardstock using the Flower Pot Dies. The flower pot was assembled as shown and embellished with Candy Hearts in Be Mine and rustic twine. The flower pot was secured directly to the card background as shown.
The insert for the flower pot was adorned with die cut flowers from the Flower Pot Card Dies.
Honey Bees Paper Piecing Dies were used to create the bumblebees. Vellum was fussy cut and placed between two black cardstock outline layers to give the wings a more substantial look and feel. The die cut bees were adhered to clear acetate strips and the strips were adhered to the back of the flower pot insert. The acetate helps make the bees appear to be “floating” above the flowers.
The “pull here” sentiment from the One-of-a-Kind Stamp Set was stamped with black ink to the center of one of the flowers to let the recipient know that the card is interactive.
The flower pot insert was die cut again and adhered to the back to hide any adhesive and give the insert more stability since it’s the only “moving part” on the card.
A sentiment was die cut from Blue Jay cardstock three times using the Bloom Dies and adhered one on top of another before being adhered to a cream die cut outline. The sentiment was adhered to the flower post as shown. Phrases from the Bloom Stamp Set were stamped on black cardstock with clear embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, trimmed into thin strips, and adhered to the card with foam adhesive as shown.
Greetings from the One-of-a-Kind Stamp Set were stamped on the flower pot insert with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were applied to the flower centers to complete the card.
