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
CRICUT & GYPSY
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.
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.
(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 that...you 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.
