Daisy Card with Bee Wobble

Daisy Card with Bee Wobble

Hi Everyone! This is 1 of 3 Wobble cards we made at class last week. I found this layout inspiration on Pinterest and knew I wanted to add the Bee Wobble to it!  I’ll post the other wobble cards over the next few days. Here’s all 3 cards:

How did I miss this wobble accessory!? It’s a fun addition to my card making stash. What I like is it collapses flat for mailing. I found my Wobble Spring on Amazon (here’s the link to my Amazon item used) and I’m sure other hobby stores carry them too!

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, 4 x 5-1/4, scrap for daisies and sentiment.
Daffodil Delight: 4-1/8 x 5-3/8, scraps for daisy, sentiment and bee.
Basic Black – scrap for bee
Petal Passion Designer Paper: 2 x 5-1/4

General Instructions:

  1. Adhere all card base layers (I used Snail Adhesive).
  2. Punch 2 daisies. Fold in half. Use sponge dauber and Daffodil Delight ink to add color. Keep closed using Snail.
  3. Stamp daisy center with Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Hand Trim into a somewhat half moon shape. Use sponge dauber to ink around edges with black ink.
  4. Add on to card front using snail and the other with Stampin’ Dimensionals foam dots.
  5. Die cut bee with basic black. Trim out yellow bee body and add behind.
  6. Add Wobble to bee and add to card so it looks like it’s about to land on the daisy.
  7. Stamp inside of card and envelope with daisy image with daffodil delight ink.
