Buzz & Bumble Card

Hello paper crafters!

I've created this simple but cute greeting card using the supplies from Buzz & Bumble paper packet. I had supplies left over even after create two double page layout. It is easy to recreate the same card at home.

You will need the following supplies

  • Buzz & Bumble workshop on the go (one orange and one cocoa cardstock, stamp set, and orange sparkles)
  • Cuttlebug bee embossing folder
  • Embossing machine (such as Cuttlebug, Sizzix Big Kick, Spellbinders machine).
  • Scissors
  • Single hole punch
  • Adhesive
  • 3D Foam Square
  • Water color pencils or alcohol markers
  • Staple
  • Cocoa grossgrain ribbon
  • Sandlewood or Dessert Sand cardstock
  • Colonial White cardstock
  • Ink Pads: Sorbet, Dessert Sand, Cocoa

 To create the card
  1. Fold a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Cocoa cardstock in half to create a card base.
  2. Emboss a 3" x 4 1/8" Orange cardstock by placing cardstock in the Bee embossing folder and using an embossing machine. 
  3. Cut a small strip of lined cardstock at 1/2" x 4 1/8" and adhere to the top of the embossed paper.
  4. Stamp the sentiment, You are my Happy, using Sorbet ink onto Colonial White card stock. Then cut around the sentiment for matting.
  5. Mat the sentiment onto a Cocoa card stock and cut around the sentiment allowing a bit of the dark card stock showing.
  6. Place 3D foam squares on the back of the sentiment to create a 3D embellishment. 
  7. Adhere the sentiment to the center of the embossed card stock.
  8. Next stamp the bee image in cocoa ink onto Colonial White card stock. 
  9. Color in bee image using either water color pencils or Honey alcohol ink markers and then cut out.
  10. Create the bee into a 3D embellishment by placing 3D foam square on the back and placing the bee cut out at the end of the left side of the stripped border.
  11. Now it's time to create the pocket by putting adhesive on the back of the embossed card base along the bottom, the left and right sides card stock. This will allow the top portion of the embossed card stock with the stripped paper free of any adhesive.  
  12. Place the embossed card stock on to the front of the folded card base aligning along the bottom of the Cocoa card base.
  13. Embellish the front of the pocket with two orange sparkle bling on the bottom right corner in a vertical formation.
  14. Create a mat for the inside of the card to allow a handwritten message. Cut orange card stock at 3 3/4" x 5" and adhere to the inside of the card.
  15. Next, follow the instructions below for the tag.

To recreate the tag:
  1. Create the honey comb patterned tag by cutting a rectangle shape at 3 1/4" x 2 1/2". Then using your scissors cut two angles of the top in order to create a tag shape. Next using a hole punch, punch a hole in the center. 
  2. Using Cocoa grosgrain ribbon at 2 1/2" length and place through the hole of the tag and secure with a stapler. Cut the edges of the ribbon at a 45 degree angle.
  3. Cut the tag's inner mat from cocoa card stock at 1 3/4" x 2 1/2". 
  4. Stamp the seeds image using Dessert Sand ink on to Sandle wood or Dessert Sand card stock. Color in image with color pencils or alcohol markers. 
  5. Embellish with three small orange rhinestone bling. 
  6. Cut out stamped seeds image with scissors and adhere onto the cocoa card stock mat that measures at 1 3/4" x 2 1/2". This can now be adhered to the center of the tag.
  7. Place the tag in a 45 degree angle into the pocket created.
Now you are finished! Fun right?
