Step 1: Start with an A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card base. Cut a mat layer of patterned paper to 4" x 5.25" and adhere with tape runner or Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 2: Using various shades of card stock in the same color family, die cut the Honey Bee Stamps Hydrangea die pieces to create the main subject of the card. These die cut pieces line up very easily and make a great impact. Feel free to ink or add special touches to the hydrangea pieces, but I kept it simple and I love the results for an easy beautiful card. I used dark to light shades of card stock on some examples and all the same color on others. I love them both!
Step 4: Add the assembled hydrangea flower and leaves onto desired Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die to frame the flower.
Step 5: Adhere a section of the Scor-Pal Scor-Tape roll to the back of black card stock and die cut 'hugs' or 'enjoy' from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords dies, then to white card stock outline die cuts and adhere to card. The pre-applied adhesive makes adhering intricate die cuts so easy.
