merry & very bright with new honey bee!

Do you have a favorite holiday "theme"? Is that a weird question? It might be but I do! *laugh*

I have a fondness for the word "merry" and I especially love "merry & bright", so you can imagine that I'm a little head over heels for the new Honey Bee Merry & Bright die set.

The set comes with beautiful skinny script words and also the shadows. The two combined make a great shaker card...
For this card I die cut the shadow words from an A2 panel. Behind the panel I adhered acetate and foam mounted it to a card to create a shaker. And on top of the acetate, I adhered the beautiful skinny "merry" and "bright" words. Since the die cuts are so delicate, I highly recommend applying a double-sided sticker-paper-like adhesive to the cardstock before die cutting, like Stick It.
I also used the skinny words on top of a glittery stripe background that I made. I used a vellum circle to ground them and give them a little more "weight". 
And the stripes were super easy to make...I applied painter's tape to an A2 panel of cardstock. Then I used an ink blending tool to create "Barbie stripes" in pink & purple pigment ink. I'm really loving Tutti Fruitti, Orchid and Sweet Lilac.
With the painter's tape still in place, I applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste with a palette knife.
The paste dries quickly so remove the tape right away.



Thanks for stopping by!
