I’m happy that summer has finally arrived here in Portland. This card with it’s bright summery colors makes me happy and smile! It also happens to be one the cards we created in my June Stamp Class.
A cool feature of this Celebrate You Hexagons card is no stamping. Woohoo! The Celebrate You Thinlits die makes this card come together quickly and easily. Adding 3/8″ circles adds another layer of happiness to this light and bright card.
What pulls this fun, bright and summery card together is the variety of colors sponged onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock then die cutting the “Celebrate” and “You”, and then punching a 3/8″ circle in each sponged color.
To make popping the “Celebrate” easier I cut it a second time from 2mm White Fun Foam. Next glue them together and then to the card. Sweet! Finally to add the all important sparkle I brushed the circles with Wink of Stella and then small Rhinestones.
Ooh……I bet you thought I forgot to let you know what colors I used. Gotcha……Lol!
Below is the inside. It is clean and simple as well with the circles brushed with Wink of Stella.
I hope you enjoyed today bright and summary Celebrate You Hexagons card and it inspires you to get your hands inky. A big thank you to Jose Hoogeveen for her lovely design that I had fun semi-CASE’ing (copy and selectively editing). I selected a different combination of colors, the background is embossed with the Hexagons DTI embossing folder and the circles are brushed with Wink of Stella & topped with rhinestones.
