Heartfelt Hexagon, Birthday or Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I the card I have to share with you was copied from one I found on Pinterest. I liked the layout and I have lots of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to use up. You can see the card I'm referring to here. There were no measurements there so please read on to see how I made it. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Lemon Lime Twist card stock. This is a color I rarely use. I had bought the variety pack when the colors came out and I still have quite a few sheets.  So when I was looking at the DSP from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package, I thought the Lemon Lime Twist color would work best.  The card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

Two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock were cut , one for the inside and one for the outside. The piece on the outside was textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card and I taped the other piece to the inside.

I cut my DSP 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" and the Lemon Lime Twist layer was cut at 2-3/4" x 4". I taped these two pieces together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was centered on the front of the card. I just eyes it.  

The words are from the "Heartfelt Hexagon" set and were stamped using Poppy Parade ink. I first stamped them in black but I didn't like it. Then I used Lemon Lime Twist ink and I didn't like that either, so I thought it would either have to be Balmy Blue or Poppy Parade. Poppy Parade won. I punched it out using the "Heartfelt Hexagon" punch. Dimensionals were added to the back and it was et in place on the front of the card. And the card was done.

I like this simple look and how I was able to use the Valentine's Day themed DSP for a card other than for Valentine's Day!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday or friendship card,
