Celebrate Sunflowers - Hexagon Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a fun shape card to share with you today.  I used the Celebrate Sunflowers to create a fun Fall themed card to share with you with a fun hexagon shape.  Here's a look at the card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out making this card after being inspired by a card that I saw in one of the card making magazines from the UK.  I don't even remember which one or who's card I saw with the Hexagon shape but I thought it was super fun.  So I sat down and figured out how to make it on my Cricut.  So I used it to cut out the card base and the mats and layers for the card.  The card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" closed.  So when it's opened it's 5 1/2" x 11" since it's a top folding note card.  I will make a special envelope for it or use a square envelope from the store.  But more than likely I will make one from a piece of matching Blackberry Beauty Speciality Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the small sunflowers from the Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee Classic Ink around the 5" x 5" Basic White Hexagon.  I also added in some of the large leaf images in Old Olive Classic Ink and some of the small leaves in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink on the same Basic White Cardstock panel.  I then stamped the large Sunflower from the stamp set along with two sets of the large leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, and colored the sunflower with the Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (the center), Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, So Saffron Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (petals), and the light Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends from the Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (for the shadow areas on the petals which was colored first)

After I colored everything I cut out the colored stamped images with the dies from the matching Sunflower Dies and my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  After cutting it all out I started assembling the card.  I layered the 5" x 5" stamped hexagon onto a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" hexagon cut from Basic Black Cardstock.  Next I cut a piece of Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper to 2 1/8" x 5" and attached it across the 5" x 5" Basic White hexagon with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then stamped my greeting in Versamark Ink and used white embossing powder from the Basic Embossing Powders and het set it on a 1" x 4 3/4" piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock.  I finished off the card by adding the Sunflower popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and tucked the leaves under it with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To add a final touch and a little more texture I added a bow I made from the 1/4" Black & White Gingham Ribbon attached with a Mini Glue Dot.  

Thanks for dropping by and I hope that you have fun creating some fun Fall themed shaped cards.  Remember that you can recreate this hexagon style by cutting the corners off your square card base, you don't have to have anything special.   I will have a link below to order all the supplies that I used to created this card in the Stampin' Up!
