Hexagons for Father CCMC300

Welcome to our Thursday Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!   We are doing things a little differently this week; we're having a Design Team Blog Hop!! How fun!

Our Challenge this week is color:  use Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Basic Gray for our project!

I thought these colors would work well for a Father's Day card so I set to work.   I embossed both the Crumb Cake and Basic Gray layers with the Alphabet Press embossing folder.  Two strips of the Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon were wrapped around the Crumb Cake layer before it was adhered to the Basic Gray card base.

I used the Six-Sided Sampler set to stamp three hexagons for the front Basic Gray layer;  this layer  was then adhered to the Crumb Cake with Dimensionals.  The embellishments use are two Pearls that were colored metallic silver with a Sharpie marker and a Basic Metal Button tied with Linen Thread.

The greeting was stamped with Happy Father's Day from the Delightful Dozen set; the ends of the cardstock were trimmed with the Hexagon Punch before attaching with Dimensionals.  Two Calypso Coral Candy Dots embellish it.

Stamps:  Delightful Dozen, Six Sided Sampler
Inks:  Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Basic Metal Buttons, Basic Pearls, Subtles Candy Dots, Linen Thread, Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon, Hexagon Punch, Alphabet Press Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals, Glue Dots.

I like how you took a feminine color and embellishments and gave them a masculine feel. Any Dad would love to receive this!
