Hexagon Shaped Card for Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Heart 2 Heart really challenges me to think outside the box with their numerous "theme" challenges.  This week both H2H Design Teams will be posting "Shaped Cards"--other than rectangular or square.

My card started with a 4.25" Colonial White hexagon cut from the new Artbooking cartridge.  I then used my Close To My Heart ruler to trace the shape adding .25 to all sides.  I scored on the top flat side and traced again to form a folded card base from Autumn Terracotta CS.  The Cranberry CS mat was cut at 4.5 from Artbooking.  The flowers are from the Autumn Happy set--first stamped in Cranberry ink and then stamped in Autumn Terracotta ink to fill in the "white" spaces.  The greeting is from Heartfelt Birthday Wish which was masked to allow the Washi Wonder stamp (Exclusive Hostess Reward--see page 6 of the catalog here) to fit under the birthday greeting.  Almond Glitz Glitter Gel was applied to the inside of the birthday letters.

The Color My Heart Color Dare challenge this week is to pick Cranberry and one other color so this card meets that challenge also.

We would love to have you play along with us at Heart 2 Heart with this Shaped Card challenge.  You have until the end of October to link your card up with us here.  We can't wait to see what you create!  Please check out what the rest of the awesome Design Team has for you and leave them so well deserved comments if you can.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. Beautiful, Marie! Would not have thought to use these colors together. Love the shape, too!

  2. Awesome shape! Love what you did with the Cranberry combo too! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart this month! :)

  3. That is one eye-popping colour combo, but it really works, esp with the floral image! Thanks for linking up with the Cranberry+one challenge (on your week off!).
