Swing into Spring Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of green bird tracks paper for the base. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ strip of beige honeycomb paper and adhere on the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 2″ strip of blue woven paper. Insert the Bumblebee Punch so that the edge of the punch is aligned with the edge of the paper. Punch. Rotate the paper so that you’re punching from the opposite side. Position the paper in the punch so that you see just half of the previous punch shape. Punch. Repeat across the strip until you have punched seven total times. Trim the ends of the strip so that it measures 11-1/4″. Mount on the border. (Save the bumblebees for a future project, like the card below.)

Step 3: Punch seven bumblebees from Light Blue, Blue and Dark Green Solid Cardstocks. Adhere in the spaces on the border.

Step 4: Adhere a floral laser-cut border and additional embellishments as desired.

Hello! Border

Step 2: Cut a 2″ x 12″ strip of bees and florals paper. Using the inside edge of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut out five circles at regular intervals (one will be covered up). Adhere to the border.

Step 3: With the Bumblebee Punch, punch four bumblebees with Navy Solid Cardstock. Cut out small pieces of Goldenrod Solid Cardstock and adhere behind the bumblebee bodies. Adhere to the border using Foam Squares.

Step 4: Using the inside edge of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with Navy Solid Cardstock. Adhere to the border. Trace the “Hello!” layered embellishment on Goldenrod Solid Cardstock. Cut out using Micro-Tip Scissors. Adhere to the border.

Hello, Sunshine! Card

Step 2: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of green bird tracks paper and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of wispy clouds paper and adhere on top.

Step 3: Using the 12-inch Trimmer and the Wave Blade, cut a 5-1/4″ x 1-3/8″ strip of golden yellow honeycomb paper and adhere to the middle of the card. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 1″ strip of plaid paper and mount on the strip. Cut a 5-1/4″ segment of the circles laser-cut border and adhere on top.
