Hexagon Hello

Here is another hexagon card for you.  This time I just used the punch without the coordinating stamp set.  It's almost a one layer card, but not quite.  It is still pretty Clean And Simple (CAS) for me though.

My inspiration came from a site I found on accident while cruising through some new-to-me stamping blogs.  Isn't it great when you find a new site(s) to love?  The site is called CAS(E) this Sketch.   Thank you CTS for a great sketch.  I look forward to joining you often!


To add the look of dimension without adding extra layers I stamped some "splatter" from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and stamped the greeting in both black and gray. 

While making this card I made a video for you.  This is a great video if you are a beginner card maker and want some tips on how to recreate this card.

***Note- If you are reading the post in an email or reader, you may need to go to my blog to see the video below.  Simply click on the post title "Hexagon Hello" and it should take you to this post.  :)

After I turned off the camera I made a second card using the leftover hexagons and Crumb Cake ink/cardstock.  Come back next week to see close-ups of that card.  (there is a sneak peek in the video above)

How did you wrap the twine around your other card? Did you make a hole to slide the strands through? Also, did you use a stampin-ma-jig to do the black 3D to offset over the gray "hello" greeting? Thanks!!! Very nice card!

I cut a slit in my other card and thread the twine through the slit. If I wasn't using a pre-cut card base I would have made a tent fold like I did with this card. :)

Yes, I did use the stamp-a-majig to do the shadow stamping on this card. If you watch the video above starting at around 7:20 you can see me adding the black "hello". :)
