Enjoying the Hexagon
Search "hexagon" on Google and you end up with a yield of about 6,990,000 results 0.39 seconds. This little shape is truly amazing, and worthy of that many entries on the world wide web. Throw in some awesomely trendy patterns such as wood grain, and its this clean and simple cardmaker's dream stamp.
This one layer card created for the Happily Ever Challenged Challenge consists of three stamps: the woodgrain hexagon from Schlosser Designs stamped in a row in two different colors-sides touching, the outline hexagon from the same set stamped to overlap, and a simple sentiment. I scored a line at the top and bottom for a bit of visual interest. This design allows you to switch up the patterns and colors for a completely different kind of card. For instance, switch to the hexagon polka dotted stamp and stamp in light greens and purples, add a touch of light brown and you have a baby or little girl's birthday card.
