Bee Mine

With Valentines Day coming up it is time to start think about Valentine's cards and treats. I've started making some Valentines cards, and have tried making some spinner cards. Here is my "Be Mine" spinner card.

To make this card, I made a cut file on DesignStudio so I could fiddle with sizes.
The base is cut from white cardstock to make a 5.5" x 4.2.5" card with a circle cutout. The frame was cut out of black cardstock with a slightly larger hole cutout, then run through my Cuttlebug with the HeartBlocks embossing folder. For the bee, I cut the base (with the wings) out of vellum, the body (two of them) out of black, and the stripes layer (two times) out of yellow. I used double sided tape to attach clear monofilament to the winged layer, then layered the other pieces on (front and back) using a Zig glue pen. More double sided tape to attach the monofilament to the card base (centering the bee in the center of the cutout) and then attached the frame.
The cut file can be downloaded here
