Hello! I have been cutting alot of hexagons in the past few days using my new Hexagon cover plate from Papertrey. Although I have amassed a ton of the little hexagons, I also have several of the negative cover plate die cuts too. It was bugging me to have all them just sitting around, so I decided to cut them apart into individual shapes to accent the front of a card. If you've ever seen a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt like this:
That's kind of the look I was going for with my card accents. I loved Audrey's card here and the way she inked the edges of the hexagons! It gave the pieces so much more dimension and reminded me of an old quilt. I just love two color quilts, so I went with a red & white color scheme. I added stitching around the edges to continue the quilt theme. I double inked the sentiment to give it a sort of shadow effect and to warm it up a bit. Getting the placement of the shadow is going to take some practice. Anyway - hope you like it!
