Honeycomb Flower

How do you like my cute Honeycomb Flower? :-) I cut out the Honeycomb Frame (Cheery Lynn Designs) and then used my scissors to snip certain sections out to create this fun flower. I then glued it down onto the red gingham paper from the Summer Fresh 6x6 paper pad and cut off the excess paper from the edges. A reserved brown piece from the frame was glued to the center.

For my focal layer, I cut a piece of white cardstock and sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges. I cut out the stem and a leaf from the new Orchid die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and glued them down, and then I die cut the Grass border (Cheery Lynn Designs) and glued that to the bottom. The Honeycomb Flower was glued to the top of the green stem.

I die cut the Hugs sentiment (Cheery Lynn Designs) and adhered the smaller version to my card, and then I pulled out the Tiny Things with Wings die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and cut the honeybee twice (once with white cardstock and once with brown cardstock). On the white bee piece, I used my Squeezed Lemonade Distress Stain to color it a soft yellow hue. Once that was dry, I glued the dark brown bee piece on top of the yellow piece to create the bee. The bee was glued down next to my Honeycomb Flower and I pulled the wings up so it looks like it is fluttering around on my card.

This scenic layer was glued to a red layer and then affixed to a white card base that was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I love this fun gingham Honeycomb Flower. Just think of all the different papers you could put inside this flower!
