Collage Curio Accent

Sometimes I have difficulty creating with small images, but I was determined to use the Collage Curios stamp set last night. Although the cute little bee didn't end up being a focal point, I think it added some cute accents.

I like the simplicity of this layout. I made a similar clean and simple card, also using the Blossom punch.

I have seen several people use Designer Series Paper inside the embossed honeycomb pattern, and so I thought I would try my patience. I'm so glad I did! I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper from the Spring Mini Catalog, and it wasn't bad at all. I put a piece of all three patterns inside the embossing folder, together, and ran them through the Big Shot. Then I just snipped around the hexagons.

To make this Blossom punch flower a little fluffier, I clipped between the petals to elongate them. Then I rolled the petals over a fat pen, curling the bottom layer down, and the top layer up. I adhered them together with a glue dot, and then added a piece of Flower Trim to the flower's center.
