For more tips on creating with the Wildwood Cottage collection, watch the tutorial at

For the card base, cut a white card stock measuring 10 “ x 7 “ and score at 5” on the longer side. Fold to make a 7” x 5” card base. Cut a pattern paper from the sweet as honey paper collection to the same size as card base and adhere on the card front.

Cut a honey comb die cut from orange coloured background paper . Cut another A2 card panel from the paper stack and using the largest of the eyelet oval die cut out the oval frame from the card panel. At the back of this oval window, adhere the honey comb die cut. Adhere this on the card front, in a tilted way as shown.

Cut out two to three hexagons using the hexagon die and distress the edges with pink or brown ink using sponge daubers. Adhere these on the top and at the side of the card frame as shown.  Cut two ovals and adhere on top of each other. Distress with leaf green ink adhere on the oval window frame with foam dots.

Stamp the honey bee bunglow with black archival ink and colour using the brush pens. Cut with coordinating die. Add glitter to the windows using glossy accents. Adhere this to the card front at the bottom. Stamp a honey bee maiden image and colour with Zig brush pens. Cut with coordinating die and adhere on the oval window on the oval die cuts.

To make the flowers, stamp the flowers from the wildwodd cottage stamp set with black ink. Colour using pink and rose madder archival inks. Cut with coordinating die. Follow the video above for shaping the flowers. Give a more natural look to the flowers using groove golf tool.
Add stamens . Stamp leaves and color with green inks. Cut with coordinating die and shape with grove tools.
Arrange the flowers and leaves on the card front.

Finish the card by adding a sentiment from the pattern paper.
