Sending You Sunshine

I’ve been itching to make a shaped card but didn’t know where to start until I saw the weekly challenge at The Friday Mashup is Hexagons or Triangles.  Before Christmas, I just HAD to have the Spellbinders Hexagon dies, so it was time to break them in!

I used the largest die for the card base and the smaller dies for each of the layers… including the sun.  It almost looks like a Minecraft sun 😉  If any of your kids (or husbands) are obsessed with the game like a certain 12 year old in my house is, then you know what I’m talking about.  This was also a perfect opportunity to use the Spellbinders embossing folder So Trendy with the hexagon pattern.  I added a border punched with the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. I inked all the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink to help define the layers. The sentiment from Hero Arts was popped up on foam tape. I decided to hand cut the sunbeams to make the little hexagon look more sun-like.  🙂

The inside was super easy. I just die cut the inside hexagon with two strips of the patterned paper and inked all the edges.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:

***Edited 3/3/14 – I was picked by the Friday Mashup DT as a Mashup Glamette for this card! 🙂  ***

***Edited 3/8/14 – I was picked by the Pile It On DT as one of their Top 3 Scoops for this card! 😀 ***
