My first venture into the world of SU!

As some of you may know I recently discovered Pinterest and a few weeks back I came across some stunning cards made with a hexagonal embossing folder by Stamping Up. I have resisted purchasing crafty items from SU until now, but I fell totally in love with this embossing folder. I placed an order through a lovely Face book friend and a few days later I received an envelope crammed with crafty goodness! Finally go around to playing with the embossing folder this evening and made this card.

 
I embossed some card stock in different shades of yellow and cut the hexagons out, and then stuck them to the white embossed card stock to resemble honey in a hive. I then stamped and coloured some bee images with a gold promarker and added a generous amount of glossy accents. While they were drying I used a memory box alphabet die to cut out the letters for the word "Believe" and hey presto a card was born xx

  13. Such an effective card. I was surprised to find that the bees were stamped images as I thought they were 3D embellishments!
