Bee Thanks Hex Card for PTI June Blog Hop

PTI blog hop logo

This month’s challenge was Touch of Gold! Gold embellishments and accents are huge in fashion, home decor and paper crafting so we were challenged to add some to our project.

Ever have an idea on your head and the resulting card doesn’t end up quite as impressive? This is that card for me. Especially since the embossing doesn’t show up as shiny and pretty as it does IRL. and neither does the fact that the ivory hexagons are raised up on foam dots. (the ones NOT under the sentiment anyway) But, I still think it looks pretty nice! I hope you like it too; kind of a quilt look. The ivory hexagons with gold on half of them were swiped in Versamark then heated with gold EP. I deliberately didn’t tap of all the excess EP then heated from the bottom for a messy look. I used the same technique on the edges of the cover plate die.

It looks great to me, so it must be amazing in real life! Love how you used the bees with the cover plate. Very pleasing.

Don't you hate how sometimes we can't capture how a card looks in real life? Despite that, your card is lovely and I love the bee theme and colors.

I think this card is fabulous (but I can totally relate to the feeling of just not being quite pleased with the end result). You added so many great details to this card...I can't imagine the time you put into it.

Just laughing to myself, cuz I know exactly how you feel about photos! Love those raised ivory hexagons with the bees, they accent perfectly!
