Better than beautiful - it's bee-tiful


Our new hexagonal embossing folder (Honeycomb) is just beautiful & gives such a deep impression & doesn't it look like a beehive - this was just a  quick play with some scraps of the Sycamore Street DSP you can earn free during Sale-a-bration. If you don't know how to earn it for FREE don't hesitate to ask me how.

unfortunately there isn't a matching punch but if you run your DSP through the Big Shot in the folder as it's such a deep emboss its almost cuts it for you - but a very easy cut to finish off.

I've used one of our new silver soda pop tops & run it through the big shot to roll the edges. The wee BEE which makes it bee-tiful and the other stamped images are found in Collage Curios and are a perfect small image to go inside the soda pop top & I've punched them out with my 1" circle punch & adhered with a mini-glue dot.

The embossed bit is stuck as a layer on a Whisper White card.

Other: 1" circle punch, Honeycomb textured impressions EF, silver soda pop top (large), mini glue dots
