Bee Happy Glitter Stripes with The Hedgehog Hollow
Hey, everyone! I'm using the February card kit from The Hedgehog Hollow to make a clean and simple glitter card today! It makes me feel like spring is coming!

I started by adhering two strips of double sided adhesive to my A2 sized card. The skinny strip on top is 1/4 inch and the wide tape is 1 inch. I peeled off each layer separately and added the Silk Microfine Glitters from Elizabeth Craft Designs in the February box. I used my fingers to really rub in the glitter and I'm still amazed at how smooth and fine the finish is! It really looks like it's part of the actual card rather than a glitter on top!
I stamped the bee, his little trail, and the sentiments using some black ink and colored in the bee with some Copic markers. I used very simple shading and blending - just some Y17 and Y13 for the yellow and some BG13 for the wings. I didn't even color in the whole wings, instead I just flicked on some color from the inside out for some dimension and color.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the February 2019 box from The Hedgehog Hollow!
