Heartfelt Hexagon

helleniumsympathy2

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have for you a sympathy card I created for a friend.  This card could be used for different occasions just by changing out the sentiment.  Dies I used are from Elizabeth Craft DesignsSusan’s Garden Notes Helenium, Berry Spray, Baby’s Breath along with Joset Designs Stitched Hexagon and Stitched Fishtail Banners.

Here is how I created the card.

Step 1  Cut 4 Garden Notes Berry Spray from brown cardstock  2 that have Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and 2 without the adhesive.  Adhere 1 on top of other to form 2 sprays.  Using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Autumn Red add berries to spray set aside to dry then repeat for back side.

Step 2  Cut Garden Notes Baby’s Breath – stems from green cardstock and flowers from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Shade, shape and create baby’s breath.  Susan has some great videos on making her flowers on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club.

Step 3  From white Soft Finish Cardstock cut petals for 2 Garden Notes Heleniums cut centers from brown cardstock and leaves from green cardstock.  Color main petals using alcohol markers in colors of your choice (Copics R59 & R89 used here).  See Susan’s video for making these lovely flowers – video found here.

Step 4  Cut Stitched Hexagon frame from white Soft Finish Cardstock using #5 & #9 taped together see photo

Step 5  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock using #8 Stitched Hexagon.  Using Distress Oxide Inks in colors of your choice (Mustard Seed, Aged Mahogany, Dusty Concord and Crushed Olive used here)  create a background on hexagon by smearing colors on mat spritz with water and dragging hexagon through it.  Heat set and continue until it is to your liking.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere to back of frame.

Step 6  Form 6″ X 6″ card base.  Using large embossing folder emboss card front..  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere hexagon to card front.

Step 7  Using Kids Choice Glue arrange flowers and berries on left side of hexagon.

Step 8  Cut Fishtail Banner stamp with sentiment adhere to lower part of hexagon.

Welcome my crafty friends!

Just a quick post of a couple of cards I did last month for a couple special ladies in my life.  October as you know is breast Cancer Awareness Month.  These 2 ladies are survivors and I wanted to recognize that so I made them each a card.  I used Susan’s Garden Notes, French Pumpkin, Feverfew, Dahlia 2 Hosta and Berry Spray all from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The stamp set was one that I purchased with part of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Hope all you ladies make sure you get those mammograms it is so important.
