Michelle is up on the blog today sharing how she created this adorable "Happy Bee-Day" card! Keep scrolling for a step-by-step tutorial featuring our Sorted Shapes 1 Stencil. 

Before you begin:

Other supplies:
Craft spatula (a plastic knife would work too)
Stickles Glitter Glue

Step 1:

I began with my die-cut hexagon and separated the frame from the center.
I taped the center to a protected area on my craft space and secured the stencil over it.

Step 2:

Next, I dabbed some ink onto my workspace than added a small amount of texture paste.
Mix the two together.

Step 3:

Cover the stencil, smooth and even.

Step 4: 

Remove the stencil carefully and wash to remove the paste.
Allow the stenciled cardstock to dry.

Step 5:

Dry the stencil and adhere to cardstock.
For this step you can place the stencil anywhere you choose.

Step 6:

Ink up black cardstock with white ink.
When finished, die cut the black cardstock with Fancy Frame Die.

Step 7:

Stamp and color your images.

Copic Color Recipe for the bees:

C1, C3, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV10, RV02, R35, BG11, BG15, YG09.
I stamped the sentiment onto vellum paper and trimmed before adhering.

Step 8:

Lastly, assemble the card onto white cardstock, size A2.
Embellish with sequins, a cord bow and glitter glue!
