Bee happy ... again!

Another 'Bee happy' card, this time using the sketch given for Sketch Saturday 263:

I printed the coloured hexagons and then cut them out individually, mounting on to an ivory card blank, stamping some with the little bee stamp by Jo Capper-Sandon from Stampotique. As with the previous similar card, the sentiment was generated on my letratag with yellow plastic tape.

(Note to self: it would have been easier to have printed plain hexagons on to coloured card, rather than digitally colour the hexagons and print on to white card - had to be very careful not to show any of the white at the edges.)

Difficult to get a photo that evenly showed the card blank without the shadowy bit at the top, which isn't there, of course, in real life.

Merry Christmas

Another Christmas card made with some of the left over Kanban card from the previous card, with the addition of a little topper and sentiment panel, both from different Kanban kits from long ago, with three stars from Hobby craft.

It is based on the sketch for Atlantic hearts 7 (my first visit there):

Green for Christmas

This card is based on the sketch for Merry Monday 66 on Always playing with paper:

Colours are for Dynamic duos 57 'green and black with optional plant theme:

I used a variety of Kanban card, die cutting using the Die-namics fishtails. The card looks a bit more vibrant in real life.
