Hello everyone! Leanne here today. One of my favorite ways to create a card is mixing different stamp or die sets to create one harmonious design. For today’s project, I’ve done just that with some old and new Honey Cuts. Make sure you scroll down to the last picture for a look at how I changed this friendship card into a Mother’s Day card.
This card is A7 size (5″x7″) I started by creating a messy watercolored background with some Nuvo Shimmer Powders – Falling Leaves & Cherry Bomb . I then splattered the background with thinned black paint. Once it was dry, I trimmed the panel so there would be a 1/4″ border when adhered to the card base.
Listed and linked below are all the Honey Bee products I used to create the pot of flowers, birdhouse, and greeting.
- Bee Hive Box Honey Cuts – birdhouse
- Spring Bouquets Honey Cuts – flowers & foliage
- Floral Vases Honey Cuts – flower pot
- Friend Honey Cuts – friend die cut
- Friend Stamp Set – stamped part of the greeting
- Bee Bold Lowercase Honey Cuts – die cut letters to spell mom
- Spring Fling Mint Julep Sequin Mix – tiny white flowers
I die cut everything from white card stock and then used various Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes to color and add shading to each piece. To convert the Bee Hive Box into a birdhouse, I simply used tiny circle dies from Spring Bouquets to add the three openings.
This card design can be easily used for a Mother’s Day card as well. By using the Bee Bold Lowercase alpha Honey Cuts, I spelled out Mom which fits nicely above the birdhouse.
