This Hive Five card by Caly is so sweet! Sweet as honey! But what makes it really special is what’s on the inside!

When you open Caly’s card, this beautiful Pop-Up Bee does its thing, creating a wonderful moment for the recipient! This new die set makes it so easy to make a card with a wow factor!

Remember Marine‘s amazing Magic Iris Beehive Add-On card from yesterday? Check out the gorgeous design she created on the inside!

The Pop-Up Bee looks amazing with gold glitter and vellum wings, popping up as you open the card! Then Marine used more branches, bees and flowers from Magic Iris Beehive Add-On to fill up this amazing card! Who wouldn’t be delighted to receive a special card like this?

This amazing Pop-Up Bee is so versatile, it can add lots of fun to a card front as well! Mindy made a beautiful window scene using Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait and clouds from All the Clouds. Then she created a greeting that is sweet as honey using Cole’s ABCs.

Megan‘s sweet bookmark is so handy! Add a piece of a magnet sheet to each side of the die cut and this little Pop-Up Bee will keep your place with so much cuteness!

Audrey created a sweet as honey design featuring Pop-Up Bee and cute honeycomb from Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag! The honey-colored wash in the background is so pretty!

Grace added the Pop-Up Bee to a Platform Pop-Up with stunning results! She included Magic Iris Sunflower Add-On and Delightful Daisy for a garden full of beauty! Check out the Intro video below to see how this lovely card comes together!

Lynnette‘s pretty design features Pop-Up Bee with little bees from Magic Iris Beehive Add-On! The Honeycomb Stencil adds pretty pattern in the background.

Latisha also had the bright idea to make a clever bookmark with Pop-Up Bee! I love her combination of bright yellow and soft purple with the glittery wing!

Elena used the hexagon shapes from Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag and the Honeycomb Stencil to create a perfect backdrop for the Pop-Up Bee! Definitely worthy of the “Queen Bee”!
