Just BEEcause


Hello, It’s CAS week at The Paper Players and LeAnne has chosen a fun one for us! I bought this Bee die cut about 5 years ago for my son’s wedding, as the theme was Bees. I made 200 party favors with it and don’t think I have used it much since. I was excited to get it back out when I saw this challenge coming up. In order to make the sentiment, I took a Because stamp and cut it at the BE mark so I could repeat the E. The scalloped rectangles and edge dies are from MFT. The DSP I have had for an eternity and has a velvet touch. I like that I used the positive and negative of that great paper and got two cards out of it. 

Here is my second card!
