This is one of those cards that you take a little something from this and a little something from that and create a fun card. I had a purpose in mind when I created this card, to send out to my paper share participants. I always include a card using one of the designer series papers. This time I used the Abstract Beauty designer series paper, which is a new size 4" x 6". This pack is so pretty!
One thing I like about this paper pack is all of the really neat designs. They are very colorful and just plain fun! I love the colors on this paper. There are so many that I had a hard time trying to pick out what color I wanted to use with it. I ended up with Blushing Bride and Black.
Did you notice the fun hexagon shapes? I used the Beautiful Shapes dies to cut them out. I was so excited to see the dies in the Stampin' Up! mini catalog. I didn't have any hexagon dies and my first thought was they would be great for sentiments.
Here is a tip for you on how I got my hexagon frames so straight.
I lined them up on my Silicone Craft Sheet (that way I knew that wouldn't slide) and added Post-It Note tape to just the dies first. Then I placed it on my paper and cut it with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine. If you need to cut more than one, make sure you take the paper of carefully, leaving the tape on the dies.
For the thanks on each of the cards I used the Amazing Thanks dies. To make the gold thanks adhere to the background piece easier I used the adhesive sheets from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. Most of the other products came from the new Stampin' Up! mini catalog.
To decorate the envelope this time, I put it on the same design of paper so it would coordinate with the card.
Here is a picture of all four of them. Which one is your favorite?
I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to stop by. I hope you are having a great week.
