Make a Sympathy Card with Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Hexagon

Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set is so versatile!  It can be used to create very simple cards are quite complex ones, simply elegant, super cute, or just plain fun!  

For today’s card, I have decided to to go for a little bit of understated elegance.  Begin by punching four or five Hexagons from Basic White Cardstock.  Then, place them in the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder and run them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. 

On another piece of Basic White Cardstock, stamp the sentiment in your color of choice, I used Poppy Parade. After stamping, use the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch to punch out the sentiment. 

While you have your ink handy, use a Blending Brush to blend some of the color on a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Start from the bottom of the cardstock and work you way up so that the color is heaviest on the bottom, going lighter as you go up until there is no color at all at the top. 

Place all of the hexagons on your blended panel, it’s okay if some of the edges are hanging over the side.  Once you have decided how you want to place them, start gluing down the embossed hexagons. Then, attached the sentiment piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the panel to the front of your Thick Basic White Card Base.  Attach a bow under the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.  Then, add a few Classic Matte Dots around your card.
