Mini Ball 'Bee' Pop Up Card

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge day. She challenged her Design Team to create a card using a 'Ball and a Small' (pairing one of the three different Ball Pop Up's with a coordinating small animal die).  I took a couple of liberties with the challenge, and didn't create an ANIMAL. Instead I used the new Mini Ball Pop Up to make a bee and paired it with the bee from the new Flutter Charms. I have all the details in my YouTube video:   

I added the new Long Flap & Closure which I trimmed to fit this A2 sized card. I love the layering pieces that come with the closure, and used it with patterned paper to hide magnets which keep the card closed.

I used several different dies to create the little bee face (which I covered in the video) but I wanted to point out that the silly grin was made using two of the fallaway pieces from the bee charm. When you cut the body out of black, there are three fallaway pieces. The smallest one was too small, but when I angled the remaining two, I got this cute crooked grin! 

The wings were made with the Crosshatch Hearts and layered with thin foam tape for dimension without a lot of extra bulk.

An upside down heart makes the little stinger. 

I have the rest of the Design Team linked on the right side of my blog, and I hope you will check out what they came up with for the challenge. Karen Burniston will have her post tomorrow (Wednesday) on her BLOG.

This will "bee" a must make card for me, as I have an adult granddaughter whose baby theme is Bees. This will make a great Welcome Babee card! Thanks for sharing!
