Stampin' Up! Hexagon Smile & Weekly Deals

This past weekend we gathered in Syracuse for the semi-annual shoebox swap.  What fun, as always!  I finally got to meet my design team buddy Holly IRL!

We were trying to think of how long we have known each other.  It's been at least four years.  Computer buddies are the bestest!

This is the card I put together for my shoebox project.  We had to gather supplies for 24 cards, and the card had to take 10 minutes or less to make.

The layout came from another hexagon card on Pinterest, but I switched up the rest.  I used Quatrefancy paper, which is retiring, as is all paper in the catalog.  The "smile" came from the Walk in the Park II digital download.  The biggest challenge is getting those hexagons spaced correctly.  A fun, clean, simple and quick card.

Stamps: Walk in the Park II MDS download; Paper: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Quatrefancy DSP; Accessories: Rhinestone jewels, Hexagon punch, e-cutter.

Oh my gosh! You & Holly got to meet in real life! How fun!!

Love your hexagon card...believe it or not, I never got that dsp. Feeling a bit of regret now. ;-)
But I still have plenty of other paper to use!

This card is just the kind I like to see - it has character, creativity, dimension, and it can still be mailed in a regular envelope! Thanks for sharing such a great card!!
