Stampin' Up Queen Bee Thanks Card for The Paper Players Challenge


Today's card features Stampin' Up Queen Bee Bundle.  This week over at The Paper Players Challenge we have a sketch that we are working with.  I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with this week.

I started by dry embossing a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with Stampin' Up Hive 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat with liquid adhesive to create the card front.

I stamped the large and small bee images from Stampin' Up Queen Bee Stamp Set using Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.  

I die cut a piece of Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Real Red card stock with Stampin' Up Queen Bee Die Set.  I die cut a piece of Basic Black card stock and Crushed Curry with a SU Adhesive Sheet adhered to the back with Stampin' Up Amazing Thanks Dies.  I adhered the thin sentiment die cut to the larger piece.  

I adhered the leaves to the card front with liquid adhesive.  I adhered the flowers to the card front with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the bees and sentiment to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I finished the card front off with Stampin' Up Enamel Dots Essentials.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with the sentiment stamped from Stampin' Up Framed Florets Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I stamped the bee from SU Queen Bee Stamp Set.  I adhered the Basic White to a Basic Black mat before adhering the layers to the card base.
