BEE MINE

At my January Stamp-In Workshop, the girls created a cute little Valentine:


Inside the card
Following is a tutorial so you can try your own hand at one of these easy-to-make fun cards:

Supplies:
Honeycomb Hello stamp set
Gorgeous Grunge stamp set
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set

Melon Mambo cardstock
Daffodil Delight cardstock
Whisper White cardstock

Strawberry Slush ink
Crisp Cantaloupe ink
Daffodil Delight ink
Black StazOn ink
Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker

Hexagon Punch
Basic Rhinestones
Stampin' Dimensionals

Instructions:
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half, creasing well with a bone folder.

From a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock, punch out six hexagons with the Hexagon Punch. From scrap Whisper White, punch out five hexagons.

In the center of all five white hexagons, stamp first the chevron hexagon in Crisp Cantaloupe, then the heart over that in Strawberry Slush. Stamp the cluster of dots on four of the yellow hexagons, the bee on one, and the "bee mine" on the last.

Find the center of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock by using a ruler from corner to corner and with a pencil lightly marking the center where the two lines intersect.

With a Stampin' Dimensional in the center of one of the white hexagons, attach it over the penciled center you marked. From there, evenly spacing the hexagons, use green glue to attach the six yellow pieces surrounding the center white one. Finish with the remaining four white hexagons with a Stampin' Dimensional on each at the four corners.

Use the thin end of the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to add dots around the "quilt" of hexagons, as well as underneath the "bee mine". Add a Basic Rhinestone to the center of the middle heart hexagon.

Inside the card, stamp the slanted lines in Daffodil Delight, followed by the sentiment in black over the top.

Do you send out Valentines? Do you make them yourself or does Hallmark (or other) make them for you? If you make your own, how many do you create? Does your special someone receive a different, more elaborate Valentine than everyone else?
