Hello Honey Bee friends! I love trying to think of different ways to use Honey Bee’s beautiful floral stamp sets; and instead of coloring the Framed: Anemones, I heat embossed it onto vellum! The star of the card is the fabulous butterfly from the Lovely Layers: Bugs Honey Cuts. Keep reading for the details on how to make this card!

First I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Beach Vibes paper pad (one of my VERY most favorites!) to 4-¼” x 5-½” and adhered it to an A2 card base with Bee Creative glue.

Next I stamped the Framed: Anemones onto 40# vellum with Bee Creative Clear Embossing ink. I sprinkled on silver embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used my scissors to trim off the outer portion of the frame, cutting around the leaves that extend beyond that line. I decided to do this so that the beautiful striped paper shows some and for added interest to the card. I adhered the vellum piece with small dots of Bee Creative glue.

Next I die cut the butterfly from the Lovely Layers: Bugs from 80# white cardstock. Then I used Copic markers to color it. The Copics I used are: BG09, BG15, BG13, BG32, BG11, and E79. I adhered the layers together with glue, popping up the body portion with some foam dots. I just love the details that are embossed into the butterfly’s wings when you die cut it. Check out this close up photo.

I chose the “celebrate” sentiment from the Tag, You’re It: Celebrations set and stamped it with Intense Black ink. I used the coordinating Honey Cut to die cut it and then popped it up with foam dots. I love this sentiment because I can use it for a birthday, anniversary, or any occasion that calls for a celebration!

I added some sparkle and shine with a clear glitter pen on the butterfly’s wings and gems from the Back To Basics Gem Sticker set.

This was such a fun card to make, and I really hope that I’ve given you some inspiration on a different way to use your Honey Bee floral stamp sets! Thank you so much for stopping by!
