Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Dies Only Challenge! For this card I wanted to use the little bees from the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait. I die cut the bodies out of Sticky Note Cardstock, the face and stripe pieces from Storm Cloud, and the wings from Pearlescent Vellum. I added a little Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink to the yellow parts and Black Soot to the dark gray.

For the background, I created a Sticky Note A2 card base and blended Distress Oxide Inks directly on the front, using Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, and Vintage Photo. To add a bit more interest, I incorporated the Honeycomb Stencil into the background here and there. I also did some splatter with the Mustard Seed and some Gansai Tambi Starry Colors in the copper shade.

I did another small panel using the same cardstock and ink without the splatters and die cut the Scripty Sweet from that. Then I white heat embossed a sentiment onto Storm Cloud Cardstock using the Hive Five stamp set and glued everything to the card front with liquid glue. I also finished off the inside of the card, stamping in Sunflower Ink.

To see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. And don’t forget to play along with our Dies Only Challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!
