Happy BEE-day!

Evening blogger peeps!

Wow! It's been over a month since my last post, where did August go?!

I've got a Bee-day card to share that I saw on Pinterest that I thought I'd try.

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.

I've never seen a center step card before but what a great design! I love the pretty flowers, the colours and the bee theme... all of it!

Hi Pam, aw this is such a cool make of yours! I love bees and don't understand why people always behave like crazy when a bee or a wasp comes near :)
Sorry it took me soooooo long to answer your question at Inky Chicks (you asked if we have a minthly challenge run). We actually have a new challenge every three weeks but in Summer and Winter we have a monthly challenge. We used to have it every fortnight but since I work 100% (sometimes even more) and with my fur babies and other DT committments, I decided to change it into a three-week-challenge run. I hope this answer helps :)
Happy crafting and have a lovely Sunday!
