Hexagon Celebration!

Hi eP friends!  This is Erin, and today I am sharing a set of 3" x 3" cards!  I was doing a large set of 3" x 3" cards for a gift basket, and I decided to continue the theme for my day here on the eP blog!

I apologize for the leaning cards above!  I had to hurry up and snap the picture!  The wind was blowing and the snow was swirling!  I can't wait til Spring!!!!

To create these cards, here was my process:

1.  I cut white cardstock into 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" and folded in half.
2.  I took Donna Downey's Hexagon Grunge (I have the 6" x 6") stencil and sponged Dusty Concord over the entire front.
3.  Then I took a Tim Holtz embossing folder, Bricked, and embossed each card.  To bring the brick out, I sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink.
4.  I sponged Onyx Black around the edges, and used that ink for the script stamp from W Plus 9 Designs Defining Words. 
5.  I then added Elegant Eggplant ribbon, die cut hexagon shapes and sprayed them w/ purple Smooch spray, colored and cut out the cone birthday hat from Tim Holtz's Mini Blueprints #4, stamped the Happy Birthday banner and cut out, and adhered all to each card.  That's it!

I hope you enjoyed today's post!
Have a wonderful day!

Great layering on these cards, Erin. I love the combination of the stencilling with the embossed bricks and then the stamping. Very cool. The ribbon makes a great accent along with the cut-out hexagons. Love the little stamped b-day hat...cute!
