I just love interactive cards. I think it makes your already special creations just that much more special! I've recently been playing around with shaker cards, slider cards, and for this one, some cute clips that you can remove and use on other things!
There are three little bees on this card that I stamped out using Lawn Fawn's Bugs and Kisses stamp set, die cut, and then adhered to some Canvas Corp Mini Clothespins.
First, I stamped out all my images and die cut them using my Sizzix. Then, to build my background scene. I did some light blue ink blending for the sky, and also ink blended on the landscape panels using a few shades of green Distress Ink.
The landscape panels are cut with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders dies. I layered them over each other, using some foam adhesive to pop up the front layer. This created some space behind the hillside that I was able to clip my little bees to.
I also tucked the mason jar in behind the front hillside, and covered it with some Glossy Accents to make it look like glass. Then, I added some Canvas Corp Jute Cord that I tied into a tiny bow.
The sentiment is also from the Bugs and Kisses stamp set. It is stamped and embossed on a strip of kraft as well as vellum. I added a little heart to the sentiment, as well.
I think this would be such a fun card to send to my nieces and nephews! They could remove the bee clips and add them onto the school notebooks, planners, or even use them as little bookmarks! Of course, its fun to just move them around the card, as well!
Thanks for stopping by to see this fun little card! Hope it gives you some ideas and inspiration for your own crafting!
