This week I used the so cute Beehive Shaped Card Set from The Cutting Cafe. This is just another beautiful and really fun set from them. There are a lot of different digital stamps, paper piecing bee’s and a beehive shape card to work with. The sayings are just too cute and perfect for that special someone. Sending handmade cards let receiver know that you care. This is a great set for summer time theme projects. The possibilities are just about endless. I did these two cards using the same bee at different sizes and opposite colors to help show how versatile you can be with this set. As you will see when you read the other products used list, it has a lots of different pieces, more previous posts using The Cutting Cafe.
