Just Bee-Cause...

WOW!  I can hardly believe it's July 1st!  And since it's the first of the month - it's time for another My Time Made Easy Release.

I know Lauren has given the run down on all of the new goodies releasing today on her blog, and I'm here to share a card using a few of the newest items available.

Tending the Garden is such a sweet set.  LOTS of possibilities here.  I decided to use this set for my card today.  One of the cut files available this month is an ADORABLE gardening apron card.  You get the template for the shaped card, as well as the mat layers - makes it a no brainer!

I needed a card for a friend - just because...or should I say...Just BEE-Cause ;).  Take a look:
Isn't this bee just too cute??  I went ahead and gave it some dimension.  I stamped the bee on the patterned paper.  Then I stamped again on some white cardstock.  Then one more time on vellum cardstock, which I used some sparkly embossing powder on that layer.  I cut the wings out of the vellum, and attached them to the white CS layer just at the tops of the wings, pulling them up on the bottom, just a bit...here's a closer look:

I thought a little pocket on the front would make a cute spot for the sentiment -- I hand drew the stitching, and attached it with a dimensional to the card front.

Lastly -- inside the card, I cut a second mat layer out of my patterned paper (from Gardening Greats Nomad's Pea Pod digital papers) and cut the top portion off to create a pocket for the inside of my card.  It is just the right size for a gift card - perfect!  This is sure to brighten any friend's day with a little pick me up :).

Hope you enjoyed your visit today -- thanks for taking the time to stop by!!

Be sure to stop by the rest of the team's blogs, LOTS of great inspiration out there today!!
