I've had so much fun creating cards using the Honey Bee Bundle from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalogue along with the coordinating Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration free rewards.
Today's card also features a background image from the Very Versailles Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue. I wanted to create a card with a vintage feel because the bee reminds me of a botanical drawing.
The Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper pack are free with a $60 purchase until March 31st. Read more about Sale-a-bration here. The papers feature black and white images with gold foil accents on some of the designs. The package contains 2 each of 6 double-sided designs in a 12" x 12" format. The paper coordinates with black, gold foil and white.
