My first card is fairly simple.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the honey comb shapes on a piece of patterned paper.  All of the papers used for this card are digital and printed on my HP Printer.  The sentiment is hard to read but it says, “Just buzzin’ in to say hope you have a Happy Birthday”.  I added a few buzzing bees to the card to complete it.

My second card was also created using digital papers.  I also cut the honeycomb shapes with my Cricut Explore and used the inlaid technique from the last hop to add the black border around them.  I finished it off by adding some buzzing bees and a sentiment to the inside of the middle honeycomb.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The last card is doing double duty.  I created it for my Shaker Hop (also today) but used a bee theme to go with this hop. I used some new Color Splash Resist Paper and Watercolor Crayons that I added to my stash this month.  I still have a lot of work to do figuring out how to use these items but I think it turned out fairly well.  I cut the mason jar shape with my Cricut Explore and  added some dripping honey and a lid (both also cut with the Explore).  Added the cute little bee and sentiment and this card was finished.

I love the cut out hexagons. Using the Explore really does make it easy to do those kind of things and you do a great job.
