My oldest niece is now a high school graduate and is getting ready for her graduation party. Her school mascot is the Bee. I created this card using the Sentiments cartridge. The beehive was cut at 3" and the bee at 2". I used this honeycomb embossed paper that I picked up in a stack by Carson, at the Flower Factory. SUPER CUTE and fitting for the theme!
The card is a 5x5 square. The mat paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack (her school colors are green and yellow). I have some silver plastic glitter ribbon from Christmas that I used a Fiskars border punch on (although you can't see it that well in the picture). I added these to the left and right side with thin strips of black ribbon. I pop dotted the hive and then glued the body of the bee but, pop dotted the wings to make them pop off the card. The stamp is from a Hamton Arts set.
On the inside, I printed the sentiment 'we heard you would bee leaving the hive. Congratulations' and stamped some little bees from American Crafts set. I used the same border punch on the yellow strips inside as well as the silver strips and black ribbon,
