Paper Smooches HEXALONGS!


I have another super fun Paper Smooches card for you today using the new Hexalongs dies! Kim calls them Hexalongs...which is a pretty cute name, but I still simply cannot help calling them squished hexagons. It's just fun! HA!

Celebrate

Yup.  It totally looks like a soccer ball.  It didn't start out that way... it sorta just happened and I kind of love it.  I die cut the navy and the woodgrain white cardstock and pieced together to create the border.  I really loved the soccer ball-style design that resulted!  A bit of red and white twine completed the look nicely!

I added a sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler set in Hero Arts Mid-Tone Navy ink... my new favorite ind of all time.

Honestly... I like this card. Lots. It's simple, clean, and oh, so happy! AND...it has red twine on it. I do so love red twine. Just sayin'.

Have A Happy!!!
