Here is a card I made recently. I love to make cards that are not the traditional A2 cards sometime whether it be an interactive card or like this one a non traditional shape. I used my hexagon nested dies to cut out the layers. To make the card base I ran some folded cardstock, slightly bigger than the die I chose, through my die cut machine leaving the folded edge just barely hanging out the end of my plates so that it would not be cut leaving the fold in tact and creating a perfect hexagon base.
I cut three sizes of hexagons out of some white cardstock being sure to leave a die in between each size to create my mat. Then I layered the pieces one on top of the other from biggest to smallest by placing a small repositionable dot on each one so they did not shift while stamping the layers.
I stamped my layered roses on to them in a random pattern letting some of the stamp hand off the edges of the paper. Don’t worry if there is a slight gap in the stamping where the different layers meet as it won’t matter when you mat them. I used roses for this card but any image will work and it does not need to be a layered stamp image.
Next I cut the mats for the two smallest white cardstock pieces using the same cardstock I used for the base of the card which will become the mat for the largest stamped piece of white cardstock.
I adhered all the layers together and attached to the base. I stamp and die cut a sentiment from one of my favourite go to sentiment sets, Perfect Sentiments from Pink Fresh Studio. I heat embossed the sentiment with some silver embossing powder and used some Spellbinders Silk to splatter on the card for some additional shimmer.
