Don't fall off your chair, but YES, this is the third post from me this week!
There are birthdays, weddings and baby's all around so I kicked my card making into high gear. I can't very well show up to all these events with store bought cards now can I? Now my smarty pants son would tell me that I "can" but "choose" not to. Semantics!!
I used the I Love Honey image by Penny Johnson to make this card and gift set for my friend Lynn's birthday last week.
I was totally inspired by the milk carton die creations seen here and here. That SU milk carton die makes such great projects, I loved that there was an idea out there I had yet to see or try. Now I will say that the brown "sleeve" around the outside was a bit putzy to get right, I think I re-did the score lines 3 times before I had a snug enough fit for my liking. When I first saw the samples, I made one that I covered with DP but in my mind I saw a bee hive. The honeycomb stamp is a Scrapblock from CHF but inked up bubble wrap can also make a good alternative. The chocolate panel on the card is embossed with a Cuttlebug bee folder. I altered the tag on the honey pot so I could add in my own sentiment. To omit the words on the original image, I just colored the outline of the tag with a black marker, stamped it onto a piece of scrap paper and cut it out. It is attached with dimensionals for lift.
The box held a handful of dark chocolate Dove candy. I suppose some Bit 'O Honey candy would have carried the theme through even better. Maybe next time!
Tonight my mother arrives from Germany for a visit. Hubby and the boys will be driving to Toronto to pick her up. I will be at a training for work all day ;(. Then we will get packed up for a week at the lake. I do have some creations left to show you, so stay tuned.
Thanks for buzzing by!
