Bumblebee Step by Step Thursday

Step by Step:
Get all your stuff together! I am so bad at this. I get everything I think I am going to use, then I get to the step in the middle and I have to go find some tool!

For this card I used:
base (georgia pacific): 4.25x11 folded in half to make my base at 4.25x5.5"
yellow (paper studio): 4.25" before cutting
DP (CLICK by KMickus - digital): 4.25x3"
Digital: Black Leaf Studio Freebie
Stamp: Unity Stamp Company from June 2009 Kit of the Month
Inverted Circle
Label 8
(Stampin' Up): Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry
Glitter Glue
Foam Adhesive
Liquid Glue
STEP 1: I took the base and used the Label 8 Die to cut the shape on my cuttlebug. You take and fold the base and then layer the label 8 die on the paper, leaving the fold INSIDE the cutting area as seen in photo so your fold doesn't get cut: STEP 2: I cut the yellow layer AND dp together along with embossed it:
STEP 3: Glue together to have a partially completed card:
STEP 4: I printed out my digital image from BLACK LEAF DESIGNS:

I printed 3 different sizes since I wasn't exactly sure what would fit inside my circle nestabilitie with the sentiment I wanted (tried it at 1.15", 1.25" and 1.35"):
STEP 5/6: After I stamped the sentiment from Unity, I checked to see what fit best:
STEP 7: Once I had the size I wanted, I cut it out! I also cut out the black Inverted Circle layer at this time:
STEP 8: Color the image and put glitter glue on and layered my image with my black layer.
STEP 9: Then comes the adhesive foam (to pop it up a little) stuck on the back of the black layer and adding it to the card for a finished product!
