To create my card begin with a 6-inch square card.
Step 1. Cut a piece of ModaScrap Under the Sea design paper to cover front of card.
Step 2. Use Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock and the third largest Stitched Hexagon and die cut one Hexagon.
Step 3. Use White Soft Finish Cardstock to create the white Hexagon frame. Use the 3rd largest Stitched Hexagon and 4th Fitted Hexagon to create the frame. Glue the frame to the Misty Mauve Hexagon. Attach with dimensional tape.
Step 4. Use the new Garden Notes Rhododendron die set to create the flower. Use the Copic Markers RV19 and R59 to color center of each petal. Shape the dome for the flower base and the flower petals using Susan's Flower Tool Kit. Color the stamens with Copic YG21 and add pollen to the tips of the stamens. Glue the flowers to the shaped dome then glue in stamens. Color the leaves green, and use light green PanPastel to color the line down the center of each leaf. Place the leaves face down on a VersaMark pad and clear emboss each leaf for the shiny (waxy) appearance. Attach the flower and leaves to the lower left corner of the Hexagon.
Step 5. Use the new Garden Notes Baby's Breath die set and create one stem. Cut the stem into four sections; attach them under the Rhododendron, as shown.
Step 6. Use the Dancing Butterflies die set and die cut one butterfly. To die cut use white card stock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on Top. Once die cut, peel off the adhesive covering and sprinkle on Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your fingers to bring out the shine. Attach as shown.
Step 7. Use the Corners 1 die set and die cut two corners using Misty Mauve Soft Finish Card Stock. Attach to the upper corners of the card.
Step 8. Use the Bead Strings 2 die set and die cut the border, as shown, along the bottom of the card. Use Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock. Glue to bottom of card.
Step 9. Use the Sentiments 1 - Celebrate die set to stamp and die cut the sentiment. Use the die to die cut two additional pieces to glue to the back of the stamped sentiment, to give it dimension.
The new Hexagon die sets are a great addition to our die collection. How would you use these dies?
