The $150 Card - Honey Bee Stamps

Do you ever sit down to make a card and then end up using 99 different things to pull it together?  
I knew I wanted to make another fruity drink card, but I couldn't decide what to use with the drinks I just kept adding!

I love how it turned out, so out of curiosity, I decided to add up everything I used.
For this one card, I used nine stamping products equalling $142.55 in supplies not including cardstock or adhesive!  Never, ever, EVER add that up in your head...just know that making your own cards is worth it and the recipient will love it! *Ü*

I started with the super fun Pineapple Cover Plates and white cardstock.  It was a little plain, so I added a yellow piece from the Hot Tropics patterned paper pack behind it.

I stamped the drinks and die cut them.  Stamped the pineapples (or Fineapples as they will now be knows as), colored them in and die cut them.  I couldn't really reach a layout that I loved so I decided to make a tiki bar.  That required decorating the bar with a flower garland and lots of tropical greenery.  then it was perfect!

Products used:
Pineapple Lattice Cover Plate Top and Base
Hot Tropics Pattern Paper and Gem Stickers
Fineapple Stamp Set and Honey Cuts (dies)
Raise a Glass Stamp Set and Honey Cuts (dies)

I love, love, love this newest release from Honey Bee Stamps!  We don't have any oceans, beaches or tropical anything in Idaho so this has been so fun to play with.

  1. this card is beautiful and worth every penny... I would love to have all of these supplies from Honey Bee

  2. When I first started making cards I told my husband we'd save money not having to buy them...well, we know how that turned out (lol). He asks people if they like their $2000 card. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Lol, if you make 99 more, that will bring them down to $1.50 each, right? Seriously, it's a beautiful card!
