Bee Mine - Valentine Card

Are ya'll getting sick of Valentine cards? I am starting to get tired of them but I still have to get the ones for my McCall's clients ready and also for my friends who will be coming to the card making party next weekend.

Supplies Used:
Make The Cut
Daisy D's Pattern Paper
Glitter Cardstock
Various Cardstock
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Signo Gel Pen
Mounting Foam

I will have to admit that little flourish is not for the faint of heart and if I use that cut again I am not going to do the top layer as it was a beeotch to cut *okie thinks she won't even discuss the gluing* because of the thin lines. The problem is that it really looks nice on the card *okie feels so torn*. I really gotta start paying more attention to the pressure settings on the Pazzles. I am not use to having 50 different settings and I have always thought more is better but I am finding out that less will get the job done, at least when it comes to low and high pressure settings! The Pazzles did cut the glitter paper with two passes and the vellum for the wings in one easy pass and no tearing!

If you would like the file for this card please see below:


  1. Very nice, so glad you are enjoying your Pazzles and the fine cuts it can make

  2. That flourish is beautiful - so maybe it was worth the effort? Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have been following you like...forever & I wanted to let you know how much I love your creativity, love for your family & friends.

  4. Cute Card! As for the gluing small shapes I use Aleene's Crystal Clear Tacky Spray spray adhesive. There are lots of different kinds on the market. I just keep a large shoe box to lay the shape in and spray in it to catch the over spray. I use a piece of paper in the bottom of the box and add another one on top if I need to spray more than one time. Just make sure to turn the can upside down and spray the glue out or it will clog after you are done.It works great on vellum too.

  5. I love your card. The flourish is perfect, but I totally understand the challenge with the delicate little pieces. The Cameo works well for these. I have never tried Pazzles. It sounds great!
