Hello, it’s Kari here today. Have you ever tried dripping honey on your handmade card? NOT REAL honey…that would just create a sticky mess! Today I’m going to show you how to make REALISTIC dripping honey on your card that will make your recipient wonder just how you did it!

Can you see that shine on the honey?!

I’m using products from the August Hedgehog Hollow Kit with all the honeybees and hexagon products. Making honey on your card is easier than you think, and I have a video to show you exactly how! Watch it below or in HD on YouTube:

This is a fun technique and I do think it’s fun to make a card that baffles your card recipient! Lol.

For this card, I first started off using one of the hexagon stencils. I stenciled on a light yellow color and then outlined them with a Copic Multiliner (keep the stencil in place to make this outlining a breeze!)

Then, I colored up the honey jar, the honey dipper, and a little bee with Copic markers.

I cut a piece of black twine and tied it into a bow for the honey jar. Then, I got to work on that HONEY!! To do this, I took my lightest color of Copic marker to draw in the beginnings of a honey drip. I made it “Drip” over that hexagon and almost down to the sentiment!

I added darker Copic markers and then used some colored pencils to get even more details. You will want to make this honey drip darker than you think because it will lose a little of that when we do the FINAL STEP that makes it look real!

I added the sentiment using a stamp positioner, so I could make sure it was in just the right spot.

The paper that comes in this kit is so DREAMY!! It has a metallic/pearlized sheen to it that is just so beautiful. I didn’t want to waste that beautiful turquoise paper, so instead of matting this card OVER the paper, I die cut a rectangle from it and used it as a frame on the card.

I popped up the bee with foam tape and added some Stickles to his wings.

For the final touch, I added some Glossy Accents over the dripping honey…and on the top of the honey dipper. I also added Glossy Accents to that honey jar. Once it was all dry, I added a SECOND coat of Glossy Accents to the dripping honey. This gave it a more 3D look. It almost looks good enough to taste!

I hope you enjoyed this fun project today! I sure had fun making and demonstrating how to get that realistic dripping honey on your card! I’ll see you again soon,
