Beezy Thank You Card

Beezy Thank You card - Front
This is my first attempt to make a four (4) side-folded card. It is a thank you card I make for my company's inter departments competition with theme "Thank You". Since I have few new stamp sets, I decided to use them. 


One of the competition rules is that the card size should not be smaller than A4. Thus, I used the A4 size aqua card stock and trimmed into 5" x 4.3" (after four side-folded) card.

ICSketches #87
The design on the front card are inspirational from Inspirational Card Sketches (ICS) #87 sketch/challenge as shown above.

Close-up : Heart flowers
Heart flowers stamp (unnamed brand bought from local bookstore) are stamped using red ink onto a white card stock. Green paper that trimmed with 'volcano' style at one end is attached to the bottom of the heart flowers which looks like grass.

Close-up : Bees flying in different directions
Bee from Hero Arts CL413 Bugs and Kisses is stamped above the heart flowers in few direction to give some effect that the bees are flying. Bee at the middle and left are paper-pieced while the left bee is stamped on the white card stock and colored using yellow marker.

A mesh is attached onto a purple card stock. Then, a flower patterned paper is matted half onto of the mesh. Then the white card stock is attached on top of it.

Close-up : Thank You message
'Thank You' bubble from Hero Arts CL394 Message Bubbles is stamped on the blue card stock and trimmed accordingly. It is placed on the right upper corner of the white card stock using pop dot.


Top view of the four (4) openings
At the back, it is the four (4) side-folded opening. The front two (2) openings are square and overlap one another. While the internal two (2) openings are semi circles.
