Hexie Friend

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Boy the wind blew yesterday! Geesh!! I looked outside this morning and noticed that we have several big branches down in the yard. Sometimes I wonder how this house doesn't blow away! I do hope it is calmer today. 

Today's card was inspired by the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. Actually it was inspired by the first card from the design team. The theme for the challenge is "over the edge". It's hard to see in the photo but my sentiment does go over the edge of the first layer. Anyway, Lorena's card was just so unique and colorful and I just fell in love with it! So off I went to try and recreate it with my Stampin' Up! supplies! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Layer of Whisper White
  • Punch five strips using the dotted ribbon scallop punch from Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Pink Pirouette
  • Adhere these strips to Whisper White layer and pop the panel up onto the card
  • Punch 3/4" circle from Basic Black card stock then use the hexagon punch to punch out shape
  • Stamp sentiment from Six-Sided Sampler onto strip of Whisper White in black StazOn
  • Slip strip through the punched shape and adhere together then pop this up onto card
  • Punch flower from Calypso Coral using itty bitty shapes punch pack, adhere to card and add a rhinestone to flower center
There you have it!! A simple card! I just love the colors on this and the impact of the black! Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!
