This is what I'm calling a Center Step Card w/ a Center Stage.
I didn't have a template for this I just eyeballed it from the picture and came up with a 7x10" base, with 3/4" sides that fold at 1" increments, and then cut in another 1" from the sides and 3/4" from the top for the stage, with 1/4" fold at the back of the stage pc to adhere to the back of the card.
Don't know if that makes any sense.
For the bee hive, I cut strips of paper at graduating different lengths and used my corner rounder punch and scissors to make the ends round, (that was a little tricksey) then glued them together. I glued a pc of black paper to the back (for the entrance) about 1/4" longer than the hive and folded it back to adhere to the stage and to make it stand up.
The flowers are daisy dies that I had in my stash, and the bees.
The hexagon background is an embossing folder that I inked with a brayer and just pressed onto the paper. The sentiment I printed out from WordPad on my computer, cut on a banner die.
That's it for now.
Thanks for takin' a peak and to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
