To create the fun Valentine card I die cut the Memory Box Tall Birch trees in brown paper. Next I cut the Memory Box Summer Border in green and also yellow paper and trimmed the flowers and butterflies from the yellow die cut and attached to the green piece. Punch out one strip of green grass using the Martha Stewart punch.
The bees were cut using black and yellow paper and the wings were coated with Sakura Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer to give them a little shine. Die cut the bee skep from yellow paper. With a strip of white paper punch a Martha Stewart Cherish Heart edge so you can add to the top of card during assembly.
I trimmed a yellow and tan paper to frame the card and attached on the white paper. Then I glued at the bottom the Summer Border and tucked the grass strip behind it and inserted the trees. Next I added the bee skep and glued my swarm of bumblebees around the card. To complete the card I attached the white Cherish Border on top.

Diane, your card is so BEE-utiful! LOVE your scene of all the bees around the hive. LOVE the embossed "clouds" in the sky and your flowers and greenery at the bottom are so pretty too! FABULOUS card!!!
