MFT December Release Countdown - Day 3


Hello and welcome to MFT December Release Countdown Day 3!

Today, I'm sharing a friendship card I made using the adorable new Meant to Bee stamp set and coordinating dies along with the new BG Honeycomb Background stamp.


At the bottom of this post, I added links to the products I used for this card. Please note, the links to the new items will not work until Release Day, December 5th at 9pm EST.

To begin, I stamped trimmed white cardstock with the BG Honeycomb Background using VersaMark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set it. I blended the embossed background with Fossilized Distress Oxide. Then, I adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card base.


I die-cut white cardstock with the second largest die from the Stitched Mod Rectangle STAX for the front panel. To create the sky, I used the cloud stencil with the Broken China Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment with black ink. Then, I mounted the panel with foam tape to the top of the honeycomb panel.


I stamped and colored all the images with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen to add accents and applied Stardust Stickles glitter to the wings. I cut out the bees with the coordinating dies.

I altered the hive from the original image. I wanted mine hanging on a tree branch so I used the masking technique to create an oval shaped hive. The tree branch is from the Harvest Buddies stamp set. I adhered the tree branch and the hive with double sided tape and mounted the bees with foam squares for dimension.
