From Our Hive To Yours

Hello and Merry Christmas July. We have finally gotten to the real hot season here in Colorado, so it is nice to think about the cooler days that come with Christmas.

I created this card for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 153 - Christmas In July.

I wanted to use the Snowflake Background Hot Foil Plate for the background. I used Opal Glimmer Foil, but you can't really see the shimmer from the picture, it is very subtle. I inked the background with Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers. I did spritz it with a little water to add some dimension.

For the Magic Iris Beehive Add On, I inked the shape with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold. I speckled it with white acrylic paint and some thinned Dried Marigold.

I used sprigs from the Christmas Garland dies for the wreath around the hive opening. I cut those pieces from Holiday Sparkle and Pixie Dust Cardstock.

I cut the letters from Henry's ABC's using the Pixie Dust Cardstock. The tree in the middle of the hive is from Snow Globe Scenes. The bees are from the Hive Five stamp set. This little hats and the candy cane are from Ugly and Bright. The little package bundle was from Toboggan Together.

I think that if I were to make this card again, I would have bumped up the hive with form foam squares to give it just a little bit more dimension.

I used Simply Winter Sentiments for the inside along with the "from the whole hive" sentiment from the Hive Five stamp set.

This was a fun little card to make. It had definitely been awhile since I had done anything Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas - a few months early.
