Even I learned something new with this card…

Hi friends! I hope you try something new and crafty this weekend! No matter how much you create there is always more to learn! I learned something with this card:

I learned that when you work with craft foam you need a  super strong adhesive! My ATG tape did not want to stick to the foam and after I photographed the card when I was done it fell apart! So, unless you want to send your friends and family a DIY card kit you want to make sure you use a strong adhesive like Scor-Tape or a thick fast grab glue. I could have not mentioned this and let you think that I am a crafty goddess but that’s not my style, I gotta keep it real:) I must say I really like the dimension if this card using craft foam as the matting layer but you can use paper instead and it would be just as pretty. Watch the video for a full step by step!

Directions:
1. Cut a sheet of cardstock in half and fold to make an A2 card. Cut the remaining piece of cardstock in half to make a 4.25″x5.5″ panel and emboss using a hexagon embossing folder.

2. Ink the embossed panel with yellow ink and a blending brush and cut each corner off diagonally as shown in the video. This is easily achieved with a 12″ paper trimmer. Adhere the triangles to craft foam and trim so there is a 1/4″ reveal of the foam on the long diagonal edge of each triangle.

3. Use the triangle panels you just made as a template and trace on your card. Stamp a design in the area that will show. Use a white gel pen to protect any light areas you wish. Ink the background with a sponge dauber when you are done stamping and sprinkle with water and ink. While your ink is out stamp a sentiment and trim it out.

4. Adhere the triangle panels and sentiment to your card and embellish with buttons as desired!

This was a simple, yet fun card to make and I hope you give it a try! You can use any theme or occasion stamp you like too! Happy crafting!

  2. Really cute card, and I just wanted you to know I’ve been loving my Pegstamps! What a great company to work with. Quality product, made in the USA, fast delivery, and their website has great tips and tutorials (I think I saw some of yours there…haha). If anyone has watched your tutorials and hasn’t tried Pegstamps, then I urge them to do so. Happy crafting!!

    • thanks Martha, I think they are the perfect stamps to begin with to as you can get just one set and a few inks and make many projects easily.

  3. Love the repeating patterns and colors! The foam cut on the angle makes the honeycomb so dimensional. Is there a method to getting that edge?
