MY SAMPLE
BEEcause I LOVE YOU
I used the adorable digital image I LOVE YOU BEECAUSE.

WHAT I DID

My card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. My fold is at the top. I rounded all corners with a large round corner punch.

I sponged my clouds just like in my tutorial HERE.

I used Microsoft publisher and text boxes to align my sentiments the way I wanted. I made my bee the size I wanted and printed two of him. I cut out the whole bee after coloring and just the body and adhered with dimensional tape. Then put dimensional glaze all over him.

I used a piercing tool to make his flying line. Then stitched with 3 strands of DMC floss. Then adhered a strip of dp punched with Martha Stewart's Grass Border punch to finish it off.

NOW HOP ON OVER TO CHRISTI'S BLOG. GOOD LUCK.
