Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome to another Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is "Mail it Monday".  This was a challenge to create 2 avid and fancy cards with coordinating envelopes.  
Since Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching I thought it fitting to get a head start on my Valentine's.

This card is my favorite card....ever.  The combination of Whisper White Craft Ink on the Crumb Cake Card Stock is pretty but that striped heart with teeny tiny Real Red roses- LOVE!!!!

The roses were created using a Real Red Card Stock scrap and the 3/4" Circle Punch.  Simply spiral cut the circle and roll it up!  Add a Pearl Basic Jewel for the center for an extra special touch!

As you can see from the picture- the envelope is very basic.  I added a small strip of Petal Passion DSP to the flap.  I would have gotten more creative but I didn't want the envelope to be prettier than the card!

My second card is actually a CASE of a card that I created last year for one of the Artisan Design Team hops.  I loved the design and thought it would look amazing as a Valentine.  Guess what- I was right!  Look how cute it is!

Just as before- I used a Crushed Curry scrap and the 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder that creates Hexagons. It creates the perfect bee's wax.  To add more dimension- I used Stampin' Dimensionals to help separate the white layer from the honeycomb.  The bees were stamped 4 times and cut out using the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I colored each body with the Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker.  The wings were colored with Soft Sky.  A Mini Stampin' Dimensional adheres the bees together.  After the bees were assembled I applied several layers of Clear Wink of Stella to make them sparkle.

See the adorable sentiment?  I created it using the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  It started out as a simply Be Mine sentiment but since I have bees on my card my sentiment needed to say Bee Mine!

The envelope for this card was created using the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  I carefully stamped the honeycomb image all over the front of the envelope.  Stamped a bee and added some teeny tiny hearts.
