I was so excited when Donna Mundinger picked this cut for the Bitten By the Bug 2  Design Team cut for this weeks challenge.....  I absoutly love it... then I drew a blank for a day or two ...and then there it was in my head the idea for this card...and I had so much fun making it... this is the first time I have added doodles to this bee and I was tickeld to death with how they turned out... I hope that you like my card!!... be sure to visit the Bitten By the Bug 2 and see what Bee-u-tiful things the other Design Teams members have created!...thank you for looking!... Hugs, Jeannie

Bee (2) and its  shadow cuts... one in yellow two in velum cut @ h 2.48 set the height and the width will be right on all cuts...I was thinking that the stripes on the bees back were cut out... so I cut a yellow shadow to go behind this...instead you can cut yellow stripes on one of the layer features and leave out the yellow shadow cut... I trimmed the antennas off all the cuts but the black cuts.... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 1/2 inches.
Give A Hoot
Tag and its solid shadow cut @ h 3.41...on the Cricut I would cut these at either 3 1/2 inches.
Flower cut to place on top of tag and its layers cut @ h 2.73 ...set the width and the height will be right... I cut an extra green and orange part of this cut for the inside..I am not sure at all what size to do this on the Cricut I am guessing  2 3/4 inches will work...this is totally a guess.
Graphically Speaking
Swirls cut @ W 2.86 x h 0.80... you will need to unlink the width and height for this... one of these is welded to the shadow cut of the tag....on the Cricut I would cut this at 3/4 and inch.
Song Bird
(loving this cartridge for welded letters!)
"B-day" cut @ h 0.77 set the height and the width will be right...scoot these letters together and weld them...on the Cricut I would cut these at 3/4 and inch...and overlap them when I placed them on the card.
"happy" cut @ 0.77 set the height and the width will be right... scoot together and weld....I placed this on the tag where I wanted it... then I duplicated it so I could cut one in a different color to place on top of the welded "happy"..this duplicating it after I got it just right was the easy way to get everything exactly the same.... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3/4 and inch..I would adhere the swirl directly to the paper..then place the happy on top of will get almost the same effect.
I popped the tag from the background...then the layer is popped from the background tag cut...the bee is popped from the background paper too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment, Jeannie! I thought I would stop by yours and loved your tutorial on inking the edges. I was so excited to find it as I'm still so new to all of this and people kept writing, "I inked the edges" and while one can guess, it was nice to see it done. Thank you!

What a wonderful card, Jeannie! Love the vellum wings and your 'doodling' looks great! Isn't it funny how some little white dots can add so much to a card? LOL!

Now that is a great idea!!!! I love that you used the velum as the base and then colored cardstock for the details! I have to run and try that myself!
