Valentine's Day Card, Bee, Male/Female

I've been working on this card on and off for about a week now.  Inside I plan to write, 'Bee My Valentine....' or something along those lines.  Not bad for what started out as a scrap piece of card.  I'm not even completely sure where it came from - packaging from something or other if memory serves correctly!

I started off by stamping the shiny side with a Kaisercraft Texture clear stamp (Wood Panel) using my Stazon Brown inkpad.  The stamp itself is quite narrow so I had the challenge of matching up the lines as best I could.  Whilst the ink was drying, I cut a Memory Box Sweet Heart die from textured red card and dug out a green mini clothes peg from my craft stash.

After folding the card (edges to middle) I glued the green peg to the left hand side of the folded flap. Once dry, I attached the red heart and then worked on gluing together the Memory Box Jolly Bumble Bees - two large and one small.  These were shaped and attached before I moved on the adding the word 'Love' from sticker tiles that I've had in my collection for a number of years.

Once the outside was finished...





...  I had to play around with what to do on the inside.  I finally settled on this Memory Box Woodland Branch die, paired with the Memory Box Honey Bee Hive and leaves from the Impression Obsession Bare Branch Die.




Hope my husband likes it :)
