Congratulations cards using Honey Bee dies and stencil

Disclaimer: I made these cards in December 2017 when lots of my friends had their PhD vivas, so these cards were made in the wee hours of the night and only one photo seems to exist of them that was taken on my phone and with all the debris strewn all over my desk!

Step sister’s black and gold birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card back in November for my oldest step sister, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it.
