Hi everyone! In a previous card I showed what I did with the foiled hexagons themselves. In this card I’m showing you a design using the outline of those hexagons. This is such a fun and easy way to create 2 cards out of 1 background don’t you think?
First I foiled the Art Deco hot foil plate with Blush foil on white cardstock. After that, I die cut it with the Simply Hexagons die. As my Gemini Foilpress was already heated up, I also foiled the Folk Garden and Perfect Sentiments with the same Blush foil. I think using this foil is a nice variation on the gold which is often used.
For coloring the Folk Garden flowers, I used the layering stencils and the following Distress Oxide inks: Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Mustard Seed, Candied Apple. As you may know, I do love coloring, but I’m also really liking how fast you can create a card by using the layering stencils.
The hexagons and flowers I adhered on a piece of white cardstock using liquid glue and foam tape. To frame it, I die cut Sticky Note cardstock with the Blanket Stitched Rectangles die. It is amazing how a simple can frame can really bring out the colors in a card and make it pop!
I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
