Hello, Simon friends! I'm thrilled to be on the blog today sharing a card with you using some yummy BasicGrey papers from the Mint Julep collection.
I love so many of the papers in this collection, but especially love them when they are all used together! The tiny patterns in the 6x6 pad work great for a technique like I used on my card.
To create the hexagons I die cut a bunch of different papers using the Hero Arts Geometric Shapes Die and then I just laid them out around my sentiment to make them flow down the card. I used the hexagon frames on a few of the spaces and then popped up some tiny hearts in the openings that were die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts Die.
The mixed font sentiment from the Hero Arts/BasicGrey You & Me clear stamp set is my favorite from this collection! And the Hero Arts Ruby Dye Ink is a perfect match to the reds in the Mint Julep collection. I finished off the card with some pink BasicGrey Candy Buttons and covered the tiny hearts with some Glossy Accents. I think those small finishing touches you add to a card are what really make it complete.
I hope you enjoy the card!
Thanks for reading today and thanks so much to Kelly for being a guest today!
