Bee Creative Tutorial – Crane of Fortune

Apr 18, 2022 | Gallery, More Bee Creative Tutorials, More Video Tutorials | 0 comments

I must confess that I haven’t used this beautiful set since it was released in January – but it is a beauty and not to be missed.  My card today features elements of the Symbols of Fortune Suite – the stamped words, the dies and the gorgeous Designer Series Specialty Paper.


  • Basic White: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”; 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Gold Foil: 2” x 4”
  • DSP: 2” x 3”; 2 @ 1” x 3”
  • Ribbon: 14”



  1. Emboss the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic White.
  2. Wrap the ribbon around the embossed piece and tie a knot on the left.
  3. Adhere the embossed layer on to the front of the card base.
  4. Stamp the greeting from the Crane of Fortune stamp set in Smoky Slate ink.
  5. Die cut the greeting with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  6. Die cut the ginkgo leaves die from the Good Fortune Dies in the Gold Foil paper.
  7. Adhere the two 1″ x 3″ pieces of Symbols of Fortune DSP (gold splatterns)  behind the piece of Symbols of Fortune DSP (white feathery flowers with gold branches), one on the left side and the other on the right side. Adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere the ginkgo branch to the DSP with Mini Dimensionals.
  9. Adhere the greeting in the lower left corner, slightly tucked behind the DSP.
  10. Adhere two small and one large gold Brushed Metallic Dots on some of the leaves.
