Masculine Birthday: Happy Birthday Hexagon

For this card I used some patterned paper from the Craft Smith Indigo Gold paper pack.  I selected the grey and cream hexagon design and die cut it with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  I used Gina K. Designs 100# Navy Cardstock for the cardbase, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  The patterned paper was adhered with Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheets for dimension.

00186For the sentiment I used Wplus9 Happy Trio to die cut one of the “happy” words from Paper Accents Mirror Gold Cardstock.  I then die cut it three more times in grey cardstock and glued them together with a Zig 2-Way Glue Pen and applied it to the lower right of the card.  I then stamped the word “birthday” from Winnie and Walter Big Bold & Party stamp with VersaMark ink at the bottom of the panel, prepping the area with an Inkadinkado Embossing Magic pad, apply Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat setting it with the Marvy Embossing Tool.

To add some interest and dimension I fussy cut six of the hexagons from leftover patterned paper.  To add even more interest I used my Versamark Marker to add a dot to the center of each and added gold embossing powder.  I then took some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and applied it to the edges with a Tsukineko Sponge Dauber.  Once this was done I applied them randomly to the card base with foam squares from my stash and the card was done.
