Birthday Card - Beehive and Bee Shape Card


Look at this cutie!!! I am so in love with my Gypsy now. As soon as I was flipped through my carts on there and saw this bee hive I knew I had to make it into a shape card and add the adorable Bee from Create a Critter. Look how cute this is. I made the height of this so it fits in a 5.5x5.5 envelope. I just welded it but from the front you can't see that because I put the entire front over the welded front. The bee is darn cute. I added black stickles to her black parts and pink stickles to her wings and cheeks. I added some bling and silver stickles to each of the flowers. The flowers were an accessory or layer on another Create a Critter button, I just can't remember which. I used my black Micron pen to stitch all around the bee hive and the bee and that just gives it an added touch and makes it stand out more. I used black Staz-on ink for the sentiment. That is my favorite so far. I really love making shape cards and now with the Gypsy I can do it so much easier!!!

Let's see...just for fun, I ask you to leave me a comment on this post with a link to a shape card you have made. If you haven't ever made one, give it a try. But if not you can still leave me a comment anyway, cause I really love your comments. They brighten any day!

Hope you enjoy.
