How To Create These Clean And Simple Hexagon Cards

April 21, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my April guest design team project with you. I love basic dies for their versatility, and wanted to show how to create these fun and colorful –– but clean and simple –– cards with just a few easy-to-follow steps.

Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut 12 hexagon pieces –– three of each of the 4 smallest sizes from the Fitted Hexagons die set, from white Soft Finish Cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Fold a card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 14,5 x 10,5 cm in size and arrange the die cut hexagon pieces onto the card base.
Step 3: Now place the die cut hexagons onto a craft mat in the exact same order and take three tones of Distress Ink to color them with an ink blending tool. Blend the colors together to create a gradient color pattern.
Step 4: Adhere the inked hexagons in place with Kids Choice glue or Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Cut off any residues with scissors.

Step 5: Add water splatters onto the inked areas and let sit a bit, then dab with a piece of cloth.
Step 6: Die cut a Fishtail Banner from white Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment from General Sentiments clear stamp set with black stamp ink onto the banner.
Step 7: Adhere the smallest hexagons and the banner with 3D foam pads onto the card base and add a few silver sequins for decoration. The tweezers are great for this purpose!

I’ve also recorded a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each particular step. Hope you like it!

Also while I was at it, I created an additional card, with yellow, orange and pink Distress Ink tones and the Stitched Hexagons die set. What a big difference it makes by only changing a color scheme!

That’s all from me today! I hope I could inspire you a bit with my April post. I’ll be back in June with another guest post. See you then!

Wishing you a great, crafty day!!
