Bee Mine

This card was inspired by Michelle Short's card on Pinterest. Close To My Heart's brand spankin' new 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book was released today and there are some new products that I knew would be perfect to recreate this card. Honeycomb shapes are the latest trend in papercrafting, so I knew that the Honeycomb stamp set on page 28 would be a perfect set to use for this card. I paired it with the new Buzz and Bumble paper pack as well. I had the idea to stamp the bee stamp with the word "mine" to come up with the Valentines theme of "Bee Mine." I didn't have the right size alphabet to stamp the word, so I computer generated it. The inside is stamped with the (now retired) Whoo's Your Valentine stamp set. I thought it fit perfect with the bee theme. I also added some of the Buzz and Bumble B&T Duo's to jazz up the inside:
