I’ve had some basic shape dies from Spellbinders hanging around the craft room for a few months now and wondered if I could make them a feature on a card, rather than just a layer.
The set that I picked to have a go with was the Spellbinders Hexagons die set.
It took a while but I ran the die through the Grand Calibur with a variety of different papers from a pad of coordinating designs from Die Cuts With A View.
After that I sat arranging and re-arranging the shapes to see what patterns I could come up with; you might have seen some of the these on my Facebook Page but I finally settled on this one.
Anyway, I then proceeded to stick each shape into position on a thin sheet of cardstock.
After that had dried I used the Spellbinders Basic Rectangles to cut out the central section of the design and then layered it onto some coordinating cardstock.
Now that the main feature was done I grabbed an eight inch square card and covered it with a piece of checked cardstock.
I then used double sided tape to affix the hexagon design to the right hand side of the card.
The rosette was made by scoring a long strip of card, sticking the ends together and pushing it down. I then used 3D glue to stick it to the card (although a hot glue gun would have been better for this).
I then used 3D glue to fix this to the rosette.
I was actually pretty proud of this :)
Here is a final picture of the finished card.
Hoped you liked it.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments on this one.
Take care – see you next time.
