Bee My Valentine, Darling Details, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I found this sweet card on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. I did make a few changes. Please read on to see how the card was made.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Petal Pink card stock was cut and then textured using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder. I glued this piece to the front of the card base. 

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package. I was thrilled to see that there are images that are not just for Valentine's Day so they can be used for other cards/events.

Sweet Sorbet card stock was used here. Sometimes I forget about those in colors, especially the ones that are going to be retiring soon, I had already made room for the new ones and was using them. The Sweet Sorbet piece here was cut at 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" and the Basic White piece on top of it measures 2-1/2" x 3-3/4".  The words from the "Bee My Valentine" set were stamped first using black Memento ink. Then the flower stems were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink. The flowers were stamped using Petal Pink and Sweet Sorbet ink. I taped the layers together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set aside.

The flowered DSP was cut at 3" x 4" and the honeycomb DSP was cut at 1-1/2" x 4". I glued this piece in pace on the front of the card about 1" from the left side of the card base edge. 

Next I stamped the bee. Daffodil Delight was used for the body and black Memento ink for the details. I stamped the antenna separate and fussy cut it out. The wings were stamped using black StazOn on a piece of Vellum. The bee and the wings were punched out. The wings were glued to the back of the bee and the antenna was glued to the face area. Dimensionals were added to the back and it was set aside.

The "thank you" is from the "Darling Details" bundle and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I used the second smallest circle in the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I sponged on a little Sweet Sorbet around the edges to add some color. I was going to layer it but the next larger circle was just too big, so sponging some ink on it was the way to go.

I set the rectangle piece in place it's not quite centered, it's off a bit to the right side. Then the bee was added. For the words I used two small Dimensionals, one at the top and one at about the 10 o'clock position (2- o'clock when you have it turned over).  I added a little bit of glue to the right and bottom area of the circle and I set it in place on the front of the card.

I now turned a Valentine's Day theme into a thank you card.  Fun, huh? Just trying to get a little more use out of a set that is only used for a few days. Now I can whip up a few more thank you cards to justify buying this bundle!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's thank you card,
