TGIF, Honey Bees!

It’s Kimberly here – can you believe there’s only ONE WEEK left until Christmas?!    Crazy!   I needed a break from creating Christmas cards, so today I have a sweet card to share using the Special Delivery stamp set.

I started by die cutting my frame and stamping and heat embossing the sentiment.   I did cut the ‘nothing better than’ sentiment to better fit in the frame….gasp!   The horror, I know!   But it really worked out well, and I can always stamp the sentiment the way it was intended by just placing the words back together – easy peasy!   After I had that done, I wanted to add a little something extra, so I stamped the envelope and mini heart with Versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.   Then came the fun part – stamping the adorable little snail and coloring him in with Copic markers!    I added a heavy coat of Wink of Stella glitter marker and a heavy coat of Glossy Accents to make his shell nice and shiny.  I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the edge of the frame with foam adhesive.

I think this would definitely make someone smile….and it would also be easy to create a set of these cards using the other images in the Special Delivery set!

I’ll be back next week – in the meantime, have a fantastic weekend, friends!
