Just BEEcause

Good evening, well nearly morning


Have you ever just wanted to just make a card but not for any reason or celebration but "Just Because" .

Well I won the new tattered lace collection on Facebook called "the sweetest things" .  They're beautiful dies but there is one I couldn't wait to play with and it was the bee one. 


I'm one of those people who will see a bee dying and help revive them by giving them a spoon of sugar water or bringing a flower to them so they can get to the nectar. I feel , in fact I know they're so important for our future generation.  I just love bees. 


The die once cut generates a 3d image using 2 Dies that are connected. Very clever and the results are just stunning. 
You can go check them out here:

Free p&p too!

I used sue Wilson's hexagon dies for the base and matting and layering which was just perfect considering they're the same shape. 

Cardstock I used was from a kit from create and craft. 
The flowers are from Kanban rose & flower kit which are already die cut.  I coloured mine in using oil pastels . Some are foiled and some are beautiful patterns of flowers. 
Very effective

Love these dies and of course just love the cute little bees lol
