Hello Honey Bee friends! It’s Carol here today to share a “missing you” card with the Cottage Window Honey Cuts. I had so much fun last week using the beautiful 6×6 Honey Bee paper pads, that I made another card using at least one sheet from all four pads!! Have you noticed how these all work together so cohesively? Love that!
I used the Cottage Window Honey Cuts and left off the shutters and created a “looking from the inside out” window. This cute little bunny is looking out the window at his owl friend leaving and missing him already! That’s my story! Haha!
The patterned papers on the card front are from the Spring Fling pad. I liked these two florals for the “wallpaper” and the curtains. To have the curtains double sided, I die cut four of each; and since they are symmetrical, I could adhere them back to back. I stamped and Copic colored the bunny, owl, and tree that are from the Silent Night stamp set (yes, a Christmas set can also work anytime!) The tree was stamped with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide and then I used just a few Copics from the YG family to color in some leaves. The sentiment is from the Missing You stamp set, and I layered the sentiment onto a leftover strip of yellow paper.
Here is a look at the scene inside. I layered a piece of acetate between the two window pieces and used a wood-look patterned paper from The Bee’s Knees pad for the outside around the window. I die cut the hills with the Hill Borders Honey Cuts from paper in the Over The Rainbow pad. I lightly inked the hill in the back for some dimension. The cloud paper is also from Over The Rainbow. I used a white gel pen to add some accent lines on the clouds.
Here you can see the cute little bunny’s nose peeking through the window. I mirror stamped him and just colored that tip that was showing. For the flower box I used the Bunch of Bouquets Honey Cuts. I used three of the flower dies a die cut some of the flowers on a piece of paper from the Spring Fling pad. The window box paper is from the Great Outdoors pad.
I just love this sentiment that’s also from the Missing You set. That surely would make anyone smile! I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I didn’t really plan on what size to make this card–somehow it turned out to be 6″ x 5″!
Here are a couple different views of my card.
I totally love how this card turned out! I hope you do too! Thank you so very much for stopping by! Have a wonderful, crafty rest of your week! Carol 🙂
