Spellbinders Honey Bee Tutorial

Hello friends, I am sharing a tutorial for Spellbinders today using the Die D-Lites Honey Bee Etched Dies.  The Die D-Lites have been described as 'Big creativity in a small size. These Die D-Lites™ are perfect for cards, tags and Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) because of their smaller size and its versatility matched by our other die templates!'

This could not be truer as you will see with my card.  I have combined the Honey Bee set with the 

Oval Ironwork Etched Dies and the 

Chicken Wire Em-bossing Folder - they all work beautifully together as you will see as you follow along with the Tutorial.

1. Cut/emboss one bee using white card stock.
2. Cut/emboss one Honeycomb using brushed gold card stock, remove the extra pieces.
3. Colour the Die cut Bee using Chameleon Pens.
4. Cut/emboss one Honeycomb in the centre of a small white tag.

5. Remove the Honeycomb Die cut from the centre of the tag.
6. Add the brushed gold Honeycomb Die Cut, secure using small pieces of tape to adhere the Honeycomb edges to the tag.
7. Adhere three of the popped out pieces from the Honeycomb to the lower left corner of the tag using liquid glue.
8. Adhere the Bee using glue on the body and 3D Foam Squares on the wings for added dimension.

9. Emboss white card stock using the Chicken Wire Em-bossing Folder.
10. Lightly sponge using Golden Glitz Ink and Tool N One and Sponge Circle 
11. Distress around the edges using scissors.
12. Adhere to a slightly larger pre-cut card base.

13. Cut/emboss one Oval Ironwork#1 #2 #3 (#1 being the smallest) - placing the frames inside each other and using recycled cardboard to create the frame.
14. Adhere the frame to the embossed card front using liquid glue.
15. Adhere the tag to the lower left hand, on an angle using 3D Foam Squares.
16. Add four hexagons to the card front using double sided tape.
17. Adhere the Beehive to the lower portion of the tag using double sided tape and 3D Foam Squares.
18. Pop up the sentiment using 3D Foam Squares.
