Just BEEcasue- Maymay Made It! DT Project

I am very excited to share this Pinterest inspired card I created for my Maymay Made It design team project.  I made this fun Beehive shaped card. The Bee's Knees stamp set was so fun to play with.

Here is a quick how to:

1. Cut out all your pieces and ink them all up. Here is the Design Space file all sized and ready to go for you.  Optional : Stamp on a face with stamps or just use the bee as is. This bee would look super cute with facial features from Mamay's Happy Tree Set.  I used a Scrappy Dew stamp for this one.

2. Glue all the pieces where they go to make the card, just glue the hearts at the top closed. 
3. Using a gel pen I added a few more highlights to my bee and hive. 
4. I found the placement I wanted for for my bee and stamped the little trail from the set. I then stamped out "Just BEEcause". 
5. I popped up the bee on foam squares. Added a bow, and flowers just because I wanted more blue.
6. Inside of the card I wanted to use the honeycomb stamp. I had the square cut out and just simply stamped over it with a similar color of the paper. Use the same ink you use to ink the edges, unless its Distress Ink because it doesn't stamp well with photopolymer stamps.  Then I just stamped the sentiment "Hive been thinking of you!" in Momento Tuxedo Black. Then just glued it in. 

Here is the completed card, I hope you all like it. Most important I hope I have inspired you to pull out or buy this amazing stamp set!!!!
