Hexagon Thank-you Cards


While sorting through my stash of pre-made card elements, I found two strips of hexagon panels I'd made a long time ago, and decided it was time to put them onto some cards. The panel was embossed with a hexagon ef, and all of the snippets of dsp were embossed with the same ef, then hand cut and inserted into the embossed areas. It's tedious yes, but relaxing for me at the same time. I used papers from a Teresa Collins Everyday Moments paper pad - one of my all-time favorites. I added some daffodil cardstock for the punched border along with some border punch negatives I found in my doo-dad box that were turned into flowers. The flower centers are actually tiny hexagons (squeal!) I did a little scoring on the white panel and added the Unity sentiment along with a little gingham bow.


Here's another version, where the hexagon panel was done with navy cardstock. I let the designer paper do all the background work for me, just adding the Unity sentiment.

I'm entering these cards into the Unity Friends with Flair as well as the Snippets Playground #180.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!

Squeal is right - but for your entire card! I love the color combination and all the hexagons are so pretty. Great scoring and the way you added the sentiment between the lines. Of course the bow just tops it off. Love it!

Somehow I missed these two beautiful cards Carol! I am totally in love with them both. Your hexi panels look fabulous-love the papers you used and I love your border between the hexi panel and the rest of the card. The embossing in the first card where the sentiment is is just beautiful. Love the pretty little flowers too as well as that sentiment. Love the second card as well, such beautiful papers you used, I think I need that paper stack. lol Hugs, Brenda
