The Golden Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper is golden goodness! (Plus, you can get it FREE with any $50 order. More about that later!) I couldn't resist making these elegant cards drenched in gold. Make sure to read all the way through to the end for a bonus 4th card.
I stamped the curved greeting from the Honey Bee stamp set on Whisper White with the same Memento ink pad. To cut it out, I used two different circles from the Layering Circles dies. Then, I trimmed the sides to the right length. I cut the hive from gold cardstock with the Detailed Bee dies as well. I layered everything and added some black grosgrain ribbon from my stash. The card front is adhered to a Basic Black card base.
After I cut the hive from gold cardstock, I embossed it with the Corrugated 3D embossing folder. I love this look! It really gives the hive dimension. The "thanks" is cut using the Well Written dies. Everything is layered on a Basic Black card base with a black strip and a black bee cut with the Detailed Bee dies.
One of the best things about the Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP is that you can get it FREE during Sale-A-Bration. If you order the Honey Bee Bundle (the stamp set and dies) plus a package of gold foil sheets and a combo pack of Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends, you can choose the Golden Honey Bee DSP as your FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
I just can't get enough of the Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP. It is just so elegant and striking. It makes me want to gobble it up, just like honey!
