Instructions

Let’s start by cutting our cardstock. You will need an A2 size (5-1/2″ x 4/14″) card base made from cocoa colored cardstock. You will also need a piece of cocoa cardstock cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ and cream cardstock from which you’ll cut two tag dies. 

On the largest of the tags stamp the Mini Clay Pot in dark orange ink. Create a mask for the Mini Clay Pot by stamping the top of a post-it note, fussy cut it out and apply it over the post that you stamped on the tag. Stamp the Tiny Clay Pot in light orange ink to the right and left of the Mini Clay Pot. Stamp the Tiny Flowers in pink ink, stamping a second time without re-inking for a variation in color. Stamp the Tiny Stiltgrass in light green and again in darker green. Stamp the hummingbirds in brown and color in with red and green colored pencil.

On the smaller tag stamp the sentiment in green and the bee in brown. Color in the bees wings with cream colored pencil. Using a make up brush apply brown ink around the edges of both tags. Fold a piece of green twine in half and poke the folded part through both tag holes, then put the twine ends through the folded twine “loop.”

Stamp the honeycomb stamp on the cocoa cardstock in gold ink. Fold the twine over that cardstock and tape on the back. Glue down the tags in the positions that you like. Glue the stamped panel to the card base.

On a kraft envelope stamp same bee in the center of the flap in brown ink. Stamp the honeycomb in gold ink along the flap. Darken any of the bee that needs t with a brown colored pencil and fill in bee eyes with white gel pen and the wings with Wink of Stella Brush in gold.
