Wrap Up the Present
This card set off a flurry of purging in my craft area. I know I have some very pretty paper with hexagons on it and for the life of me, I couldn't find it. I was so determined I opened the hutch of pitch and toss. Good news, I found a Spellbinders set that I haven't seen in over a year that I sorely missed. Of course, I still can't use it. Grrr. But no 6 x6 pad of DP with hexagons. Hmmm. I then went scouring through every sheet of DP I own for something with hexagons and was in luck! I have a total of one sheet that I had really bought for the pattern on the other side. Even my snowflake paper looked more square than hexagon!
I really enjoyed making this card for this week's Sketch with a Twist (hexagons) but I will admit I looked at the sketch and got creative and didn't realize until I went to take a photo that the proportions are off. The present is paper-pieced and the image is from the new release, Presents and the sentiment is from Birthday Mini. What I really liked about the Presents set it it also has a smaller image of the present that I stamped on the inside of the card and the envelope to tie it all together.
