SweetAsCanBee Gatefold Card - Hero Arts 2021JanMthKit BeesFlowers -

Today, I enjoyed participating in the Hero Arts Summer Stamp-Along. Online card class was by instructor Maria Willis.

Used Hero Arts 2021 Jan Mthly Kit. You may know I'm a fan of Bees.

HA inks blended, splattered & used Water Flower stencil on background. Can you see the Water Flow stencil?

Stamped Flowers on vellum, heat embossed (tip is to heat emboss from back/behind of the vellum) with silver embossing powder and die cut. Placed flowers on panels of Gatefold Card & trimmed off edges. This is a wonderful way to use vellum.

Stamped & heat embossed sentiment with white embossing powder. Stamped Bee with black & heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
