Super Dad


The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to add a little texture. I think I might have included a touch of texture on this card! lol

I started with kraft card stock, embossing it with a SU! hexagon ef, adding snippets of red, navy and yellow hand-cut hexagons dropped randomly inside the embossed hexagons. I cut a navy SU! scalloped top tag punch, and embossed it with a SB M-bossabilities folder with smaller hexes. On top of that is a SU! note tag punch done in kraft, and on top of that is a border done with a Simon Says Stamp hexagon border punch with randomly placed negatives in matching colors. The "Super Dad" image is a digi from SNSS colored to match, and the final touch was some color coordinated twine added to the tops of both tags. 

With all of these snippets used, I have to share this one over at the Snippets Playground #164 too!

Wishing you a warm day wherever you are! I hope this cold weather will be over soon and I'm sure most of the country feels the same way! Thanks for stopping by today!

Very nice, bright, fun Dad card. Some super hero dad will be thrilled to get this one. Love your mini hexagons that go so nicely with the larger ones. I have the folder, I'll have to dig it out and use it soon. Enjoy your day and try to stay warm yourself. It is snowing right now and has been most of the morning. We just got about 1 inch overnight and this morning. It is dropping down to 0° tonight and a snow/rain/sleet mix for Saturday. Where the heck is spring?????

I love this super colourful card carol. The hexagon background looks great with the random coloured inserts.
Your cowboy card in the last post is fabulous too. You made a great background and I love the stamped image and sentiment.

Love all these bright colors in the hexagon grid. I can just imagine all the fiddling with those colored snippets to fit in the hexagon shapes. Pretty with the soft taupe color too..lets those brights just shine. Love the texture on that tiny cute tag.With even more spots of brilliant color. Delightful & fun. TFS & Hugs
