DIRECTIONS:

Step 1:

 

Using Cricut Design Space, get your images ready to cut:

            BEE (2): 2” wide

            SMALL HEARTS: 0.65” wide

            BIG HEART: 3.45” wide

            VELLUM: 3.75” square

            LETTERS: 2.15” wide

 

Prior to cutting, trim some Glue Dots® Adhesive Sheets for Die Cuts to fit on the colors of paper you’re using.  This project is great for scraps you may have.  Once you add the adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock, begin cutting your layers with your die cut machine.

Step 2:

 

While your papers are getting cut, trim a card base from one of the Miss Kate’s papers to measure 4.25” x 8.5” and then fold in half.  Use the bone folder to really crease the fold.  Also, cut a mat at 4” x 5.25” with the Lawn Fawn Spring Fling paper.

 

Step 3:

 

Begin layering your die cuts.  With the Glue Dots® Adhesive sheets on the back, they go together so quick!  Remove the backing from the die cut and you are left with adhesive to stick your layers together.

Step 4:

 

Once your dies are put together, use the Glue Dots® Tape Runner to add the Lawn Fawn Mat to your card base. With the Glue Dots® Adhesive Sheets for Vellum, cut one in half and place it on the top side of your 3.75” vellum square.  Remove the backing and gently rub the shiny sheet to get the adhesive transferred.  Stick this to the top side of your Lawn Fawn Mat.

Step 5:

 

Begin assembling the rest of your elements.  Use the Glue Dots® Mini Dots for the smaller pieces of the bee, and the Glue Dots® Tape runner for the heart and banner pieces.

Step 6:

 

Add the small hearts to the sentiment, and then to the large heart.
