Hey all!! Happy FRIDAY!! Cristena here today! I am very EXCITED about using the cute Bee Swissie Clear Stamp Set today. She is so very cute! I am also excited because yet again, I created the diorama card in Silhouette Studio. As you can see from the photo above it has many layers creating very nice depth. These cards are a lot of fun to make and receive.
I colored this very cute and very sweet Bee Swissie, but then wasn't sure what I was going to do with her. But I just had to use her! A few years ago I used Bee Henry for a birthday card for my son. My daughter also likes bees so, about high time I used Bee Swissie.
After creating the Cave cut file last week, I had the idea of the drippy insides of a bee hive. Granted, we all know they aren't actually "dripping" with honey, so it was just my creative imagination having a good time.
I took a couple of photos so that you could see the depth of the card from the sides as well. The whole box sits on a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 base so you still have a card to write in. I had LOADS of fun creating this cute little card.
You can kind of tell from the photos that I started out with a light yellow layer and getting to a darker and darker yellow as you go deeper into the "bee hive". I used a bit of the Walnut Stain Distress Oxide for the yellow bits of the bee hive.
The outside I actually used Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb so that I could use my Copic markers to color the outside of the hive.
I also created this little stitched tag for the sentiment with a few little sequins from my Spring Bees Sequin Mix.
I created the SVG file so it would cut and score the whole card. Granted you can ungroup and take the scorelines out if you wanted to do so. But this way you wouldn't have to guess.
- 8 x 5 - scored at 1/2, 1 1/2, 6 1/2, and 7 1/2
- 6 1/2 x 5 - scored at 3/4 and 5 3/4
- 6 x 5 - scored at 1/2 and 5 1/2
- 5 1/2 x 11 - scored at 5 1/2 (this is the card base)

Until next time friends!
