Washi tape and hexagons for fathers day

It's a bright and breezy day in Buckingham today - perfect for getting up early and sneaking in a Less is More card before the chores begin. The challenge there today is Hexagons - and there's certainly no lack of those among my Stampin' Up stash! Come and see what I made:


I started by partially embossing a white panel with my Honeycomb embossing folder and added a strip of hexagonish (!) Epic Day washi tape where the embossing met the smooth card stock.


It needed something more... oh I know, MORE hexagons! I like the shape this fathers day sentiment from Delightful Dozen makes so I emphasised it by adding these fabulous map-patterned hexagons snipped out from a gorgeous design in the Epic Day designer paper pack. An accent of contrasting washi tape adds a bit of interest.


All the hexagons I used are different sizes  - but I didn't let that stop me!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Delightful Dozen
Ink: Black stazon
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Epic Day washi tape and designer paper, Honeycomb embossing folder, Big Shot, paper snips, stamp-a-majig

Notice that I might get the card made early but posting it takes a bit more ingenuity! Have been up to all sorts of mischief this morning, including this game:



I called it 'Pin The Hem on the Donkey' which was VERY rude but which caused me to cackle like a hen!

See you soon,
