Santoro’s Gorjuss Bee Card
Create a buzz with this fabulous easel card, and try your hand at stamping and colouring with the stunning new 'gorjuss gir'l, 'The Little Leaf'.
1. Trim orange cardstock to measure 6 x 10 1⁄2''. Score and crease at 3'' and 6'', folding inwards to form the easel base. Create a large hexagon 6'' in diameter and mat with a slightly smaller, lighter coloured hexagon
2. Use the Xcut Mini Die Nesting Hexagons to make small hexagons. Arrange on the large hexagon and fix. Stamp 'The Little Leaf' set onto white cardstock. Colour with Artiste Watercolour Dual-Tipped Pens and fussy cut,applying Anita's 3D gloss to the bees' wings.
3. Cut a 1⁄2 x 4 1⁄2'' strip of acetate and score at 1'', 1 1⁄4'', 3 1⁄4'' and 3 1⁄2''. Fold inwards to form a rectangle. Fix to the back of the gorjuss girl and the other end to the hexagon. Trim several acetate strips to 1/8'' wide. Attach two strips to the back of the hexagon, bend in front, and fix the branch to them, so it dangles behind the gorjuss girl. Repeat to add bees.
4. Fix the hexagon to the easel base, and trim the corners. Cut and mat cardstock to the base. Finish with strips of cardstock, a sentiment tag, and more bees and leaves.
