I created a card last month for a featured stamper challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  I had picked this card to case, mostly because I had just gotten MFT’s Hexagon dies and wanted to try them out. I cut Neenah Solar White cardstock the larger strip. I cut slightly smaller pieces out of Carta Bella’s Merry & Bright patterned paper. The patterned paper pieces were fed through a Xyron sticker maker and adhered to the larger white strip.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Patina Bazzill Cardstock, folded in half. The bottom right corner  was rounded. The hexagon strips were adhered to the left hand side of the card. More white cardstock was cut with MFT’s Let it Snowflake and Framed Greetings die.

A sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments was stamped in Red VersaMagic ink was stamped on the Framed Greeting die cut and adhered on the lower right card base.  The snowflake were sprinkled over the card and topped with rhinestones from a Sleek Strip Silver Rhinestone to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
