Our first card is a delightful blend of honeycomb patterns and ink-blending techniques. It's the ultimate warm and sweet way to say hello.
1. Blend the Colors
Begin by blending the colors along the edges of two sides using an ink-blending tool. This technique will add dimension and artistic flair to your card.
2. Stamp Patterns
Step 1: Stamp the honeycomb pattern onto a yellow cardstock and cut it out.
Step 2: Use the heart pattern from our Fleur and Heart stamp set to add a charming touch to both sides.
Step 3: Finally, stamp on "Hello".
3. Assemble Card
Attach your honeycomb onto the card using 3-D styrofoam dots. This simple step will elevate the pattern, making it appear 3-D. For extra sparkle, add some gem embellishments.
