Die Cuttin’ Divas October 2018 sketch challenge

It’s the first Tuesday of the month, and you know what that means?  Another awesome sketch challenge from Die Cuttin’ Divas!  There are a couple of ways to achieve this design.
I made two frames – the yellow and the orange – and layered them on top of a blue background.

When I design a card in Silhouette Design studio, I first make a rectangle or square in the size that I want the finished card to be so I can place everything and size it.  Looks like this.  The square for this card measures 4.75 inches.   I chose a recent freebie from Miss Kate’s Cuttables, Beehive, for this card and placed a copy of the svg onto my square.  I knew I wanted some kind of cutesy bee-related sentiment and went with Hap-bee Birthday.  I used the text tool to write it, filled it with brown and set it to no cut.  Next I placed the sentiment onto my square, grouped it, and did a print/cut on blue paper.

The beehive itself is cut at about 2 inches. That made for some very thin, tiny pieces.  I cut the bees many times but was only able to get one to cut cleanly.  I did the best I could with the others.  They all tore and I couldn’t get the tiny pieces out.  The flight line also tore. 😞

All in all, I think the card turned out pretty cute!  I did forget to add the tan rectangle from the sketch, though.  It’s still sitting on my desk . . .

It’s always fun to see how different people interpret a sketch.  We’d love to see your take on this one!
