Happy Bee-Day using Karen Burniston's Lorna Label

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! My card for you today features Karen Burniston's Lorna Label die set. This is a new release die that was part of the February spring release. Along with the Lorna Label die set, I also used the Flutter Charms and Fun Flowers!

For this card, I started with and A2 top fold card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb smooth white cardstock. I recently purchased this beautiful patterned paper pack from Echo Park called "Bee Happy" and let me tell you, this gorgeous paper really makes me happy! I couldn't wait to use it. I added a black thin cardstock to the background to really make the patterned paper pop. 

I die cut the Lorna Label pop-up mechanism from the same thin black cardstock (65lb). Then using the accompanying dies in the set, die cut a yellow and white piece for the centre. I also die cut the yellow banner that goes along with bottom of the pop-up. I tried to use a bright yellow cardstock for this. This was just some scrap cardstock I had. I save all my scraps just for this purpose. 

I then die cut the squares for the base of the card and to create an area to sign this card. I used Karen Burniston's Square - Crosshatch dies in the largest and second largest dies. I used the same yellow and white cardstock for this. 

I die cut the sentiment using Karen Burniston's Word Set 2 - Birthday die set. I used a glossy black cardstock. I had to do some "word surgery" to create the word "Bee". 

I then used Karen Burniston's Flutter Charms, Fun Flowers and the largest flower die from her Flower Pot Pop-Up die set and die cut all the bees, flowers, etc. I used smooth heavy weight white cardstock and colored all the pieces in using Copic markers. 

For the front of the card, I used a stamped sentiment from gina K Designs called "Beautiful Bees". 

I continued the same design on the front of the card, only adding some honey comb to the top and bottom corners. 

I added Glitter gel to the daisy flower petals and I also added Glossy Accents to the bees bodies to give them some added dimension. 

I just love how this card turned out. Those little bees are adorable!!
