Happy Bee-Day

Wednesday, September 27, 2023
Janice is our fabulous hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's looking for layers! Here in Canada, we often start layering our clothes this time of year but Jan is looking for layers of paper. In fact, she wants to see at least three layers on our projects!

By the time this post goes live, I'll be in England. Unfortunately, my aunt passed away earlier this month so I'm over for the funeral. I'm there with my mum, older sister, and younger brother. It just so happens that Saturday is my niece's birthday and she lives near London so I made this card to hand deliver to her! That doesn't happen very often. 

I started with the card base and then added a black mat either side. I took a piece of watercolour cardstock and smooshed some Fossilized Amber oxide ink all about. I used half the paper to create two panels and the other half to die cut with my never-before-used-although-had-to-have-at-the-time-of-release bee hive panel die (Studio Katia). The little doily is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business), with the tiny popped bee on the front from Your Next Stamp (also no longer in business). The sentiment. little bee and flight path inside are from My Favorite Things.

Now it's your turn to layer up! Please head over to Little Red Wagon for inspiration from the wonderfully talented team there - and then link up your own paper creation!

I'm so sorry for your loss, Kate. All my condolences to you and your family. This is a beautiful birthday card and I know your niece will love it. And that you are able to give it to her in person will make it all the more special.

Iʻm so sorry to hear of your familyʻs loss, Kate. Iʻm sure your niece will be almost as thrilled with the beautiful card as she will be to see you. I love all the lovely texture on your card and those bees are adorable.
