Hello Honey Bee friends! I am so low on my birthday card stash so today I’m sharing one I made using the gorgeous Lovely Layers: Roses Honey Cuts. All of the Lovely Layers series are absolutely beautiful and today I took a bit more time to Copic color my layers to get the look of even more dimension!
I began by die cutting all of the Lovely Layers: Roses dies from 80# Neenah. Then I used Copic markers to color each layer. I used R22, R32, R21, and R20 for the rose and rose bud layers and G28, G07, YG25, and YG03 for the stem and leaves. I used some thin foam strips in-between each layer for even more dimension. (This will most likely be a card that I hand deliver, or I could place it in a padded envelope for mailing.)
Next I created my card base and panel. I scored a 6-½” x 6-¼” piece of 80# Neenah at 3-¼” and folded it with my bone folder. Then I used the next to largest Sweet Stacks: Mini Slimline Honey Cut to cut another piece of 80# Neenah. I used a Detail Blender Brush to ink on Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide in a light-to-dark ombré pattern. Then I spritzed a bit of water onto it with my Distress Sprayer, let it set a minute and pressed a paper towel to the piece to soak up extra water. Next I placed the top layer Garden Lattice stencil over the panel and blended more Salvaged Patina through the stencils on the bottom left and upper right of the panel.
I mixed a bit of Confetti White Perfect Pearls with a few drops of water and used a paint brush to add spatters to it. I also added a few drops of the Perfect Pearls mixture to the rose and leaves. I used Bee Creative glue to adhere the rose, rose bud and leaves to the card. Then I added a few sequins from the Hugs and Kisses sequin mix to add more sparkle!
I hope I’ve given you more inspiration for this awesome Honey Cuts set! I totally love all of the dimensions! Thank you so very much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful, creative day!
