(optional) If you are feeling particularly artsy, paint some flowers onto your cardstock. Please excuse my poor attempts at flowers. DIY Bumble Bee Card Step 3. After the paint is fully dry, use a pen to outline each of the bees. Then, add details like wings, stripes, eyes, antennas, and of course smiles! Step 4. Trim the cardstock down to fit on the blank card. Adhere the cardstock to the blank card using the scrapbook glue. Then, add a cute message inside! For birthdays we wrote: Happy BEE-Day For father’s day you could write: Have you heard the BUZZ? You are the Father of the Year!
