Hello Honey Bee Revisted

A few weeks ago I showed you a card we made during my February Monthly Card Class.  It’s also one that I taught in the U.S. during Nickie’s card class.  I had an extra card kit all made up, so I decided to try out another idea I’ve seen floating around.  

​Here’s the original card:


And here’s my new version:

The Daffodil Delight strip of cardstock has been swapped for Gold Foil, and the bee’s stripes have been coloured in with a long-retired Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker.  The really fun part, however, is how I made the metallic gold honeycomb pieces.  

I put 3 of our carried-over Black Stampin’ Dimensionals on a piece of backing paper from other Dimensionals, removed the protective paper, and sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Then I heat-set them.  Once they were cool I just peeled them off the backing paper and placed them on the card.

Yes, I could have cut the hexagons out of Gold Foil like I did the Daffodil Delight ones on the first version, but these have neat dimension and are more fun.

Which version do you like better?

​Here’s my supply list:
