Bee TY Kindness Card

Used mostly Tim Holtz items to make this Bee themed card.

I used a special cutting plate on my Sizzix, Tim Holtz Dimensional Cutting Pad, that has a bevel part in center that when placed over the die it cuts the image so it is popped up and not cut in the center. I like the dimension that using this special cutting plate gives the image.

Die cut multiple times so I could paper piece the Bee to have yellow bottom & vellum wings. Added antennae to the Bee using some scrap pieces of black cardstock.
