Challenge – 29th September 2020




The Paper Shelter

The prize this week is 3 digital images from their online store.

This week’s cards are made with The Queen Bee image from The Paper Shelter.

I am a big fan of The Paper Shelter and their designs. Whether you just print cut and layer the coloured images or decide to print the images and colour yourself the cards always work out beautifully when you start with a great design.

For my cards I used the coloured version of the images. The 2nd card is printed and then I cut out decoupage layers and assembled card providing some depth with foam pads.

For the first card I printed and cut out decoupaged layers of The Queen Bee. On the final layer I travel a circle around the image and cut out except for areas where the print was outside the circle. I then cut a slightly bigger circle in Black and glued by decoupaged Queen Bee onto the black card. On the white base card I added a layer of black card and glued yellow die cut hexagons to it before adding my circle topper. The card was finished with a die cut sentiment and some tiny bees cut from the printed sheets. A wauw card which stands out because of the bold colour scheme.
