Beehived Heart - a Love Card

Size: A5

I had finished this card yesterday. However, the electricity problem prohibited me from posting about it.

Here’s my final beehived heart card – “Just for you”. I have used punched flowers for the card too. The punched flowers are embossed so that it gives them dimension. The centre of the flowers is made with 1.5 mm red strips. The leaves and stamen are made with 3 mm light green strips. The heart with the thought “Just for you” is stamped. About the beehived heart, the red strips are of 4 mm size and the white border is of 3 mm size. In the collage picture you can see the difference between the red strip dimension and the white strip’s dimension. The black punched borders are sunburst punch.

In the inside I have used clear stamp and wooden stamps to form the circle stamp and a dragonfly. You can write your thoughts or some quote in the circle. The border is again sunburst punch.

The size is half of US Letter card stock i.e. half of A4 size paper.

Here’s the collage of different details of the card:

(Click on the picture to see larger view. Or open in new tab/window and zoom to see the details.)

I made an Envelobox for it and decorated it.

(Will post the pictures soon)

I love this card. How do you like it? Please drop your comments about it.
