Bee Thinking of You

I made this card for a friend who was in the hospital.  I started with a pre-folded pale-yellow card and rounded all four corners.  I stamped the two flowers repeatedly with black ink.   Then I added the little bee - I recycled this from a tiny gift card, trimmed it, and mounted on black and then yellow cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a white scrap, trimmed it into a banner, and attached.  Then I punched two flowers, added gems, and attached over the sentiment.

Here are the supplies I used for this card:
  • Stamps:  Whisper Print Daisy and Whisper Print Geranium (both from Memory Box)
  • Sentiment:  The Old Island Stamp Company
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Flower Punch:  EK Success
  • Corner Rounder:  Creative Memories
  • Square Punch (used to make end of banner):  Marvy Uchida
  • Gems and pre-folded card:  Dollarama
