One Card Wonder Wednesday, January 1, 2020 - Honey Bee Card


It is time for One Card Wonder Wednesday!  Please forgive me for not posting last week.  I wasn't prepared in advance and I was enjoying time with family and friends on Christmas Day.  

This week I chose an adorable stamp set that will be available beginning January 3rd.  It is in the January Mini Catalog.  so you only have to wait two days if you want to order this fabulous set!  It is the Honey Bee Stamp Set.  I paired it with a free Sale-a-Bration item you can earn...the Honey Bee Designer Series Paper!  

I love these little Honey Bees!  They are so cute.  I think the hive is absolutely adorable.  I made this card using a combination of stamping and die cutting.  I stamped the hive and die cut it but the bees and flower I die cut from the Honey Bee Designer Series Paper!  How awesome is that!  The Dies can be used with the stamp set and with the DSP!  

What do you think?  Will you be making one of these cards?

In the process of making these cards I realized the little honeycomb pattern matches the Stampin' Dimensionals exactly!  How fun is that little factoid?!  

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!
