Kia Ora and Welcome Back
Today I am featuring something a little different from my usual cards. I have been inspired by John Lockwood and his amazing creations. Please visit his website here for the instructions on how to make this hexagonal frame here: http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.nz/2014/05/what-difference-year-makes.html?spref=pi
I have made the lilies using the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily stamps and dies on foamiran. I was happy with how the flowers turned out but foamiran is still a work in progress for me.
For the base of this I have used Sizzix hexagonal dies rather than measuring out the hexagons as John as done. I embossed the smaller die and then cut the hexagon with the larger die. I have still cut the tabs etc the same as what John has done but I thought this was a quicker and easier way of doing the base and it worked perfectly for me. However, it is really important when cutting out the larger die size to measure with your ruler to make sure the edges are even to allow the base to sit evenly.
Have a good week – don’t forget to check in on Wednesday for the exciting release of the new Beary Fun Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations!
