Hello friends! It’s Victoria and I am back with another fun card using the August 2020 Hap-Bee Subscription Box. Today, I am sharing a simple encouragement card that is perfect to send to a loved one.
Supplies & Instructions: Simple Encouragement Card
For this project, I used:
- 4.25 x 5.5-inch white card base
- 4.00 x 5.25-inch white card panel
- Hap-Bee Sentiments Stamp Set
- Intense Black Solvent Ink by Close to My Heart
- Sauna Dye Ink by Catherine Pooler Designs
- Jet Black Embossing Powder by Nuvo from Tonic Studios
- The Ton Clear Enamel Dots
To begin, I stamped and fussy cut 5 bee images from the Hap-Bee Sentiments Stamp Set using Intense Black Ink by Close To My Heart (CTMH). Next, I created an ink blended background using a dye-based ink (Sauna) by Catherine Pooler and a blender brush. The ink is concentrated on the top left and bottom right of a 4.00 x 5.25-inch white card panel.
Once blended, I stamped the outline honeycomb stamp from the Busy Bee Stamp Set over the ink blended areas using CTMH Intense Black Ink.
To create the sentiment, I stamped “I Bee-Lieve In You” from the Buzzing Bee Stamp Set using clear embossing ink on black card stock. Next, I applied Nuvo White Embossing Powder over the embossing ink and heat set the sentiment using a heat tool.
To assembled the card, I added the card panel to the card base using foam adhesive and adhered the sentiment and bees as shown. For a finishing touch, I added clear enamel dots by The Ton for extra interest and dimension. This card is now ready to send to a loved one!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Before you go, tell us…are you using the August 2020 Subscription Box goodies to make a simple encouragement card or two? Post your response in the comments section!
