Hexagon Mother's Day

I saw a card by Kalyn Kepner in one of my card magazines which inspired me to make this card for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

I took advantage of my Cameo once again, using a Silhouette cut file to cut out my hexagon background in recycled white paper and then to cut out all the hexagons in patterned paper.

I did a little stitching with my sewing machine as a border around my background pattern paper.

A border punch, some twine and a button dress it up a little bit.

Supplies used: card stock - recycled white, patterned papers from Fiction 6X6 paper pad by Basic grey; Silhouette Studio cut file; stamp - GCS Art Stamps; ink - Barn Door Distress Ink by Tim Holtz for Ranger; border punch - Martha Stewart; button and twine - my stash; sewing machine; Pop Dots.

Beautiful card. The way you used the hexagons with the colorful patterned papers take it out of the ordinary. The embellishments are pretty also.
