Unstampabelles June Challenge CASE Card

The Unstampabelles Theme this month is to CASE a Design Team card. I also wanted to use some new dies, and the card I made for this challenge is headed over to my friend in the UK.

My Inspiration 
Card by Merry

And here is my card inspired by Merry's use of  hexagons.

I used the following products in the making of this card:

  • Stampin Up's Crumb cake card cut to A5 size
  • Stampin Up's Hexagon embossing folder
  • Stampin Up's Whisper White card
  • Stampin Up's Dimensionals
  • Stampin Up's Baja Breeze Ink
  • Stampin Up's scraps of double sided Designer series papers
  • Scraps of Kaszazz double sided paper
  • Spellbinders 'Tags & Flags' Shapeabilities S5-095
  • Spellbinders Hexagons Nestabilities (smallest size) S4-368
  • Hearty Crafts Easy 3D designs Owl HC7275
  • PVA glue with fine nozzle
  • Double sided tape
The finished card size is 14.5 x 10.5cm
The Owl is layered and mounted using SU Dimensionals as are the DSP Hexagons, the 'Hello' sentiment is computer generated and also mounted with dimensionals.
Everything else is flat mounted using either double sided tape, or in the case of the narrow and wide ric rac, the PVA glue.

Since this card needs to be posted, I tried to minimise the dimension without eliminating it altogether.
These little owls come in a pack containing 10 images.

The components for each image is individually packaged inside the outer bag.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Happy Crafting
