Honey Bee Circular Slider Card

Just a quick post, written last night after my class was over and before bed, to show you another sample of the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bee Dies, but this time in a Circular Slider Card formation that I tried to figure out how to create on my own.

Of course, I used the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper that you can earn from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure with any $60 purchase* on one order. And I put the Honey Bee bundle to good use to created the Bee Slider! I did make a video to show the action, but I was trying to film it one-handed and the action is a bit stiff on my slider card so it was a slight disaster as far as an action film goes!

  • The bee itself rotates around the hive and spins on it's own axis. You can see on all the photos that it is in different positions.
  • I made a panel of the honeycomb paper mounted on Gold Foil Sheet and then die cut it with two of the layering circles nested together to get the track for the slider bee.The circles need to be two sizes away from each other to make the track wide enough to work, but the inner circle has to be large enough to fit the bee hive, which I embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, the die cut and glued onto the inner circle. The inner circle is glued to the backing using dimensionals or adhesive strips, arranged to give the maximum clearance space so that the bee can move easily around.
  • This panel is backed with Basic Black cardstock behind. A dime is placed behind the slot and two Mini Stampin' Dimensionals piled on top of each other. The bee is die cut and adhered with a glue dot to another dime which is then attached to the dime behind the slot using the mini glue dots. This gives added weight to allow the bee to turn and move around the circular slot.
  • The bee is heat embossed in black on Gold Foil Sheet and die cut. The die cut honey comb has been die cut from Gold Foil Sheet which was backed with the retired Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, so that it would be easily adhered to the front of the project, like applying a sticker.
  • The sentiment, from the same stamp set, is heat embossed on Basic Black cardstock with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.
