One last challenge for Gina's challenge a day. This one was to make a card that was not a typical A2 shape and size. I thought about it for awhile and ran all sorts of ideas through my head. I really wanted to do something more original than a circle or square card. I've made patterns for special shaped cards before - not too difficult - it usually just requires a bit of fiddling with the shape and size to fit an envelope.
Then I remembered that I had made a hexagon card in the past, and since I usually keep my templates, it was pretty easy from that point. And again my love for quilting came into play. A hexagon is the basis for Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts. So with that in mind, I made sure to add some faux stitching . I kept the whole pretty simple, some layered circles, one stamped image and no sentiment. While some people feel a card is naked without a sentiment, I don't feel that way, and quite often I don't put any sentiment on the front of the card.
The image is stamped is pacific point, which I also sponged on the outer edge of the card. Cool caribbean was sponged around the image piece.
