Welcome to the February Creative Challenge for the MFT Design Team!
This month, we are Getting Digital and working with the AMAZING Digital Files available at My Favorite Things! Have you seen how many options there are? You can check out the Digi Stamps HERE, Digi Papers HERE and the Templates HERE.
I wanted to try my hand at the Beehive Shaped Card FOREVER, so this challenge was perfect for me to do just that! When you purchase a template from MFT, you receive a zip file that contains many different formats for your project. I do not yet have an electronic die cutting machine, so I went with the traditional print & cut option.
I printed the template three times, once on a piece of Smokey Shadow Cardstock (for the actual beehive base), once on a piece of Harvest Gold Cardstock (for the horizontal portions of the hive) and once on a piece of Terracotta Tile Cardstock (the door) and then just simply cut out the pieces and put it all together. I added some grass using the Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass Die for a bit of interest.
I then stamped the ADORABLE Pure Innocence Honey Bee in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending card and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut her out and popped her up on the hive. I stamped the sentiment, "Bee Mine" onto one of the horizontal panels.
I wanted to somehow finish off the inside, so I opted to cut out ovals with Oval Nestabilities and simply added another sentiment, this time using "You're Sweet As Honey" and stamping this cutie again on the bottom in Memento Cantaloupe.
Here are the Die-Namics I've used today:
