Happy Bee Card

Hi Everyone,
I thought I would share another all occasion card with you today in between doing my accounting work.  This card is more on CAS (clean and simple) side.  I used the Square Lattice Stampin' Up embossing folder to create the overlay.   Then I used a Spellbinders die to cut a window in the overlay.  Behind the window is a watercolored image from Stampendous.

I tied a baby blue ribbon around the edge and layered with a bright coral card base (Cameo Coral -SU).  Here is a closer look

And, you know me, I just can't leave the inside plain.  I added a Bee a sentiment from Penny Black.  I stamped on a piece of blue parchment CS.

Some Fun Challenges for Happy Bee:
Lawnscaping: Decorate the inside
Dutch Dare: Summer Fun
Wee Memories: Summertime
Victorine Originals: Flowers

Just a quickie today.  I have to get back to the accounting!  Have a great day and  leave some time for stamping today.  Love ya.


  1. adorable. I wish I could "favorite" this post. My women's club mascot is bees and they love this kind of stuff!

  2. This image is fabulous and you have done a great job with it:) Sandra H

  3. Super cute! I love your take on our challenge. I love that you punched out a frame on the card front to show the inside! Brilliant! Thank you so much for joining us again Karen!

  4. Such a sweet CAS card. And that sentiment is perfect! Thanks so much for joining us at Lawnscaping!

  5. Simple and gorgeous! I really need to pick up that embossing folder, because every time I see it used I love it. :) I love how you included the sentiment with a bee on the inside - it's simple but a perfect way to tie everything together. Thank you for playing along with us over at Lawnscaping this week!

  6. Very pretty, creative window, and the sentiment is too cute. I like how you did the ribbon too!
