Bee Hive with 2 Platform Pop-ups to make a Shadow Box Card with Lawn Fawn's Hive Five Kit

 Oh this new kit from Lawn Fawn is all I could have expected from a Lawn Fawn Kit.  I just wish it was a monthly subscription, because shut up and take my money.  It is the best stamp/card inspiration kit I've ever gotten.  I've only done a handful, so no judging.  But it really is the cat's meow or the bee's buzz I guess in this case.  So many ideas brewing and so many cards to share...I'm not numbering this series because I'm not sure how many I have planned.  Please keep in mind if you missed the kit, you can still find things to create similar looks from other sets and other companies.  And for those that missed it, but wanted it I do hope they will bring it out down the road for more people to get.  (I think I'll include a video along the way of other sets to get a similar look.  I need to find time to play and figure out what I have on hand, that might be still available.) 

I haven't done this style of platform pop-up since my original creation shortly after it's release.  It was time to give it a go again...just like last week's platform with a view.  I think it turned out well with the removal of the middle connector.  Time consuming yes, but that's why it's a hobby. LOL. Keeps me semi-sane to keep the mind and hands busy.  I don't idle well.

Flat fold for it's leaving these honey inked fingers anytime soon. I think not! LOL.

The color guide for my Ohuhu Bullet Nib Fans.  Did you know you can match colors by name with the brush tip ones? I listed the ones I know, I only have a small brush set though so I haven't gone out looking for the rest of them. Sorry, not sorry.

I was wondering what size envelope you put these in? You do a great job making all of the pop up cards. They are so much fun. Thanks

It depends on the finished platform. It they aren't taller than 5 inches I can use a 5x7 envelope, I've gotten a couple to fit into an Invitation Envelope 4 1/2x 6 and a couple to fit in an A2. This one will end up in a 8 1x2 x 5 1/2 inch envelope. If it's not hand delivered, I use cheaper card stock and make a card that fits the envelope to size and then tuck the flat platform into that inside the envelope to help prevent it getting wreaked in the mail. Thanks for visiting!-Jaime
