SSSC54 Hive Sweet Hive

I'm running a little late this week getting my card posted for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I actually made a card for this challenge on Sunday, but I wasn't happy with it, so I didn't post it. I've made a few cards with this set over the past couple of days and I'll post the rest soon. It's difficult to tell, but there is glitter on the wings of the bees. I also used LOTS of Stampin' Dimensionals, which I tried to show in the close-up image, but I'm still not sure that the depth shows. I used Dimensionals under the bees, under the hive, under the circle and under the square layer with the brads, so there's a lot of depth to this card. It was a fun card to make, but lots of cutting so if you don't like having to cut, then it's not for you. I don't mind it, and this card couldn't have been made without it. The Hive was stamped onto a piece of Designer Series Paper and cut out, then the sign was stamped onto white, cut out and pasted onto the hive. I stamped the hive opening onto a piece of copy paper and then used it as a template to cut the black used for the opening. The bees were also stamped onto white and cut out. Thanks for visiting!
