I know that is a strange title for my post. But, I created a card that I intended to use for my PPA post until my critics said they liked the bunny card just a bit more than this one.
I like the dramatic contrast of colors in this card. I have always been a fan of black & yellow combinations on a card. And, with the bee, it was just natural to go with that color scheme.
A small square of Pool Party c.s. embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder softens the look of my card.
The bumble bee is stamped, colored and cut out with an Oval Framelit. I also stamped the bee on Vellum Cardstock with Black Staz On Ink. After is was dry, I snipped the wings and attached them with Glue Dots to my main image.
The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink & banner cut. A few Regal Candy Dots give the banner some color.
My black mat is embossed but it is tough to tell on the other pictures. Here is a close up.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
