Just Bee-cause: Bee Garden Hexagon Flower Card

Hello and Welcome – Samantha here sharing a card I made using the StickerKitten Bee Garden Collection. It’s always made sense to partner bees up with hexagons. I decided to get a little creative with my hexagon dies and create a flower – I’ve used hexagons before to create hearts and other geometric patterns. I was quite happy how easy the flower shape took place – I wonder how many other shapes you could create with a hexagon die?

Hope you enjoy this card and photo tutorial.

Step 1: Using yellow flower pattern paper from the Bee Garden pack die-cut 6 hexagons using a small Hexagon die.

Step 2: Using green pattern paper die-cut another small hexagon and then die cut a slightly larger hexagon using green cardstock. Cut both hexagons in half.

Cut out a thin strip for the flower stem.

Step 3: Adhere the two hexagons together as shown below.

Step 4: Using kraft pattern paper die cut a hexagon using the bigger hexagon die.

Step 5: Assemble the hexagon flower on to a kraft card front. Add the ephemera bees and sentiment.

Step 6: Die cut a few more small hexagons – cut these in half and adhere to the bottom of your card front as shown below. Trim any excess card off.

Step 7: (Optional) Add machine stitched details

Step 8: Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins. Adhere to a white side folding A6 card base.

Aside from the hexagon die and cardstock – all the pattern paper came from the Bee Garden Collection – it makes choosing a colour scheme super easy!

Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial for today! Have a play and see what other shapes you can create with a hexagon die and the Bee Garden Collection.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha
