In the UK, its Mothering Sunday and I have my annual challenge to come up with something creative and different for my Mother-in-Law two weeks after her birthday! So I am tying into two challenges
I wanted to play with shaped cards, I love hexagons, so this was a good shape to start with.. And once I had cut my card, I found my theme… honeycombs.
The fold is on the left hand side, so when I ran it through the Big Shot there was still a join in the card, however I made a mistake and put my purple holding tape on the inside of the card and not on the edge…
The problem with this, is that although purple tape is light tack, because I had run it through the Big Shot twice (as I had two sheets of card), the purple tape was well and truly stuck to the card and marked the card when I removed die… good job I was cutting most of it away and covering the rest.
I then (for what felt like the rest of the morning) poked out small hexagons from a A5 sheet. Hey Kyla – guess what my next Shaker Card is going to contain???
I wasn’t going to put anything behind the lattice-work but decided on an extra layer of vellum because I wanted to keep it simple and I think seeing the writing on the other side would have spoilt it.
