The Six Sided Sampler stamp set and Hexagon Punch are both retiring at the end of this month (actually a few days now) and I have wanted to make a version of the card on page 105 of the current Annual Catalogue since it was released. I was inspired to create my version after seeing this card on Pinterest.
I stamped the dotted image from Gorgeous Grunge (not retiring) onto Whisper White card using Sahara Sand ink. The stamped panel is attached to Crumb Cake card and then scored and folded Crumb Cake card. I stamped three of the images from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set onto Whisper White card using Sahara Sand ink and punched them out using the Hexagon Punch. I stamped two more of the images from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and punched them out using the same punch. The three hexagons across the centre of the card are attached using dimensionals and the other two are attached flat to the Whisper White card. I added strip of Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper across the raised hexagons. The butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (not retiring) is stamped onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch. The butterfly is attached to the card front using a Glue Dot in the centre and a 1/4 of a dimensional under each wing. Inside I kept the card simple by stamping the butterfly, masking it and stamping the dotted image over the top using the same colours as the card front.
It’s taken me a while to get around to this card but I must say that I love the card. Seems a pity that I waited so long!
Bye for now,
