Honeycomb Thanks

Hi there

The weather down here in the South West today is wet and miserable so that's enough reason to stay in and enjoy some cardmaking.

So, without further ado, here's my first make of the day...

This was actually my second attempt at this card.  The first time I used the embossed impression of the honeycomb background but I decided it looked a little too harsh so I started again and used the reverse side, i.e. the debossed impression.  I stamped the dotted images onto a scrap of white cardstock and used a small hexagonal die to cut these out.  The embossing folder is by Sizzix from Stampin' Up and the hexagonal die is from Clearly Besotted but they work brilliantly together!  I arranged the hexagons in a floral pattern, adhered these to the debossed panel and then framed the panel with turquoise cardstock and used the same cardstock to die cut the 'thanks'.  Another reason I'm so glad I used the debossed made it so much easier to stick down my word die!  

Materials used:
  • Cardstock: Southfield - Premium Pure White; Papermania - Premium Textured Cardstock
  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up - Honeycomb
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Building Blocks and Building Blocks II
  • Ink: Versa Color - Turquoise
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Honeycomb and Thanks Word Die

Challenge entries:
Less is More - Colour Week 166 - A Touch of Turquoise
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #89 - CAS
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
Muse - Challenge #61 - I was inspired by the white embossed background, the turquoise and the swirly die cuts

I hope to be back with more to share later on today.  Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday...and probably even more if you're one of those lucky people who are now relaxing on your Easter break.  Unfortunately for me, tomorrow is just a normal Monday at work.

I hope to see you again soon.


  1. Stunning and very stylish make Anita - love it.

  2. Love this card, so fresh looking.

  3. Have I mentioned to you (a million times) how jealous I am that you have that die?! :-) Love the fun feeling of this card - very clever to incorporate the hexes this way! Thanks for joining us at Muse!

  4. This is so fresh & pretty! I know exactly what you mean about sometimes the embossed side of a panel just doesn't give the right feel, this is perfect using the debossed side :)

  5. This is absolutely super Neet!
    Thanks so much

  6. What a lovely card! Thanks for playing at Charisma! xxx

  7. I love this! Great idea to use the debossed side of the cardstock. I think that was the right choice too! I love how you added the turquoise polka-dot hexagons. That's a really great idea! Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM. :)

  8. I really like this - the debossed side works brilliantly and I do like the colour you've used. Thanks so much for playing along with ASM this week!

  9. Neet these are both fab!
