Hello Honey Bee friends! If you are here in the US, happy Thanksgiving! Today I’m pausing, just briefly, my Christmas card making to share a card I made that reflects my feelings this day. I’ve used the beautiful Farm Fresh Flowers stamps and Honey Cuts along with the Blessed stamps and Honey Cuts to create a bridge fold card.

To create the bridge fold card I took a 5-½” x 5-¾” piece of white cardstock and scored it on each end at ¾” and 1-½”. Next I used pieces of scraps I have from the Autumn Afternoon paper pad. (Yes, I will be ordering another of this beautiful paper pad!) I cut two 1-½” x 5-½” strips of the leafy paper and adhered them on each end of the white cardstock. I reinforced the score line at ½” by scoring it again. The plaid paper is 2-¾” x 5-½”. I trimmed four thin strips of the gold paper and adhered them as you can see in the photo. I used the awesome Bee Creative Precision Tip Glue to adhere everything. If you haven’t tried this glue, I highly recommend it!
Next I stamped the florals from the Farm Fresh Flowers set in Copic safe ink and colored them with my markers. This was easy and quick to color as I knew a lot of it would be covered with the sentiment. I die cut the flowers with the coordinating Honey Cuts.
I used the Blessed stamps and Honey Cuts for the sentiment. I die cut the base layer from vellum, the middle layer from white cardstock, and the top layer from some glitter paper in my stash. I was really happy to find that I had some that coordinated perfectly!! Gotta love it when that happens! Haha! I adhered the layers together with Bee creative glue. I stamped the “so” and “by you” in black ink, trimmed them and layered each with more glitter paper.
I adhered the flowers to the card by adding some Bee Creative glue just to the edges of the flower bunch. Once that was totally dry, I added foam squares to the back of the sentiment and adhered it over the flower bunch. I added a few gem stickers from the Farm Fresh Holiday Gem Stickers to the plaid panel.
As challenging as this year has been in so many ways, the one thing I’m always thankful for is the people in my life! We may not be gathering together like normal, but I’m trying to stay focused on the positives. These are my family, friends, and even friends like you all that I’ve “met” through this thing we call social media! Whatever you may be doing today, I hope you have a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by!
