A Taste of Honey

I whipped up a few little note cards yesterday, to enclose with Snippets Playground prizes etc. :
I used:

- 4.75" x 4.75" square cream card stock

- SU embossing folder 'Textured Impressions - Honeycomb' and the same cream card stock

- snippets of gold coloured patterned paper

- the cutest little bee stamp by 'Rubber Stamp Tapestry', stamped with VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia'. It came from Beadaholique in the USA

- Elzybells sentiment, also stamped using VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia'

I did have such fun making these, snipping the little hexagons was fun 'cos I'm a sucker for fiddling on,  made easy after embossing the patterned snippets with the same folder as the main honeycomb.

I love how you used this honeycomb folder, Di! I've gotta try that!

Carol L said...

It's addictive isn't it? :) I could spend hours snipping those hexagons! I love how you stamped those little bees here and there too :) Cute card!

This is most sweet especially in the light of the bee population being in decline. I was about to ask if you used your ickle rolling pin but I see the stamp is a rubber one!! Hugs Mrs A.

Diane said...

I love simple but lovely. I emailed you yesterday I hope you got it? I was so excited!

Lovely card Di. I really must have a play with that folder. It's on my list of "things I must use before I buy anymore"!

Hettie said...

Love this...Good inspiration for using that honeycomb folder AND there's an MFT die with the hexagons....hmm, now do I have a tiny bee stamp? This will be such a welcome addition to your prize packages! TFS

Elizabeth said...

Lovely card, Di. The sentiment is so cute. I can just imagine you clipping away at those hexagons - it's just the sort of thing you would do :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Fab! Love the design and the perfect sentiment too.

You didn't half make me laugh with your comment about being sprayed!

Kathleen said...

Love what you have done with this EF. looks really great and I have got this too but not used it yet, played with an idea but needs a great deal of perfecting, unlike this card but you have given me a little idea, which I may or may not use, and that is embossing the paper too.
Do you think this folder will be worth a fortune soon as well, lol.
Oh gosh just poured a glass of wine and spilt half of it over some stamped images, what a waste of wine.

What a sweet little card...perfect for the playground notes. Now you just need to fit in a little section for the grades! teehee

Sarn is doing a selection of little notes lately too...I am quite liking these and feeling the lure of creating some teensy cards to fit some small envelopes I top the craftroom...toodles!

WOW - this is one of the nicest cards I've seen using that embossing folder. Very stylish Di . . . love how you only used PART of the folder (how'd you do that then?).
