Hello everyone! We are celebrating Patterned Paper Week here at Honey Bee Stamps. I have created a card using the fun patterns from the Spring Fling 6×6 Paper Pad. In fact, almost all of this card is composed of patterned paper. I was inspired by all the pretty floral prints and colors from the Spring Fling pad.
I started by die cutting all the patterned paper elements for the card. I used the largest die from the Stitched Scallop Squares Honey Cuts for the background layer. To create the flower petals, I used the smallest die from the Double Stitched Ovals Honey Cuts. I cut out eight petals. The flower center has been die cut with one of the Double Stitched Circles Honey Cuts. I used some of the smallest dies from the Stacking Hearts Honey Cuts to cut out a few hearts to add as embellishment. The main greeting is also die cut from pattern paper using the Thinking Of You Honey Cuts. In addition to the patterned paper elements, I created bees from card stock using the Honey Bees Paper Piecing Honey Cuts.
Next I adhered all the die cut elements onto the scallop square background. I went with an asymmetrical arrangement. I added the large daisy flower towards the right hand side with some of the petals going off the edges and trimmed the overhang. Once I had this main focal point in place, I just layered everything else around it. To help the die cut greeting stand out, I stacked the pattern paper layer over two layers of brown card stock. I added the bees with dimensional foam squares so they are popped up a bit as well. Lastly, I added a stamped and white heat embossed sentiment strip…. “sending big hugs” from the Thinking Of You stamp set.
