Cut & fold the white lightweight card using your Crafts 4U paper cutter and scoring board.
This will be your 6" x 4" card base

Using the largest rectangular die, cut a rectangle of white card and emboss it using the Crafts 4U words embossing folder
Mount onto the card base using double sided tape
Using the largest outer die from the Stacked Hearts die set. Cut a solid white heart from white cardstock

By hand, carefully cut a slightly larger solid heart from orange cardstock

Mount the orange solid heart onto the embossed background using foam tape
Mount the white solid heart onto the orange heart using double sided tape

Using the 'toilet roll' double sided tape, tape the reverse side of another piece of white card
Cut this taped card using the Crafts 4U honeycomb die. Once cut, immediately cut again with the largest outer die from the stacked heart set aswell. This should leave you with a honeycomb heart that has peelable double sided tape on the reverse.

Peel off the tape and mount onto the white solid heart
Cut two more honeycomb dies. One from yellow card and one from orange card. We will be using the tiny hexagons from the die in a couple of steps

Now use the outer two dies from the stacked heart set and cut a heart 'ring' out of champagne glitter card. Do the exact same thing again... however, the second time use the 3rd & 4th largest outer hearts - this will give you a smaller heart 'ring'
Glue the two heart 'rings' to the white honeycomb heart upper layer but only at the dimple and the bottom point of the heart so that the curves of the hearts can be lifted up and stand above the white honeycomb layer

Now using the small hexagons... mount with tiny pieces of foam tape. Randomly place within the open hexagons on the white honeycomb layer
Fussy cut some bees from scrapbooking paper. I have used 'Harmonious Honeybee' paper from the Nature Sketchbook Collection by GRAPHIC 45. Attach as if flying on the heart 'rings'

Choose a sentiment and attach as a flag from the lower right of the heart cluster
