I have my third Fathers Day card for you today which is the card I sent to my Dad this year so I couldn’t post it before the day in case he spotted it and although you wouldn’t be able to use the fathers day sentiment ’til next year, all of the other items can be used any time of year :) My Dad has recently ventured into Bee Keeping so I have some bee themed elements for you today. There are 2 bee cut files and a wooden bee hive cut file too and for those of you without a digital cutting machine I created a digi bee scene for you to colour, I also have 2 matching sentiments. There is a cut file for the pop up slider card base, you can find it in my last post here.
I wanted to give the hive a bit of a realistic feel by swiping some darker brown ink over my hive peaces to give a wood effect and lifted the bottom of each slat with 3d foam pads to add dimension. I mounted my little bees onto strips of acetate then attached to the back of the hive so they appear to flutter in mid air and the iridescent vellum I used for the wings looks really effective when they catch the light.
Here are your cut files – formats include ai, dxf, gsd, pdf, studio & svg:
