I had a fabulous time playing with this Months My Monthly Hero Kit, stamping the large 6 x 6 background stamp and then using the color layering stencils to fill in the design.  Once that was done, it was time to color the bees with two shades of copic markers, Y11, Y15 and the entire background B00.  Two of these panels is enough to make three cards, so here are the next two for you.

How to create the Hero Arts Flowers and Bees Cards:

Start by cutting one of the art pieces down to 4 x 5-1/4 and attach it to a top folding A2 sized white card base.

Use the Amazing Sentiment Die also included in the kit to cut out the word three times in Amethyst card stock and stack.

Next, cut the background shadow piece from black and attach the sentiment over it before attaching to the card front.

Finally, use the Misti to stamp some of the words from the small sentiment set included this month onto black card stock.

White heat emboss, trim and attach to the card.

Additionally, embellish the flower centers with Yellow Stickles and the bees wings with Crystal Stickles.

Card 2 Clear Front Card:

Start by cutting off the front of a top folding A2 sized white card base, leaving about a 1/4 inch overhang.

Next, cut a piece of clear acrylic 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 and use red line tape to attach it as the card front.

Finally, trim down two pieces of the art panel and glue them to the top and bottom of the card front, leaving an open gap in the center for the larger sentiment.

Adding the Sentiment and Embellishing:

Start by cutting the sentiment three times from Amethyst card stock.  Stack it and use white glue to attach it to the acrylic.

Next, white heat emboss a couple of additional sentiments trim and add them to the card.

Finally, embellish with a couple of cut out bees and the yellow and crystal Stickles again.

 

The third card is shared here using the floral die cuts that also come with this set
