Card with Hexagons

Hi Friends,

Few days ago I was checking cards in Pinterest and a friend of mine pinned lots of cards made with hexagons...  that was new for me and I though it was very pretty.. So I decided to give a try!!

First got my hexagon nestabilities and cut many of them with the 2 smallest die cut... got the paper and decided to just put the cuts on the paper first to see how it would look like with the patterns I picked.. well Friends, I tell you.. it is not that easy.. they are like puzzle and cannot just be placed side by side ahahahah

Then decided to check on you tube for a video tutorial so I could watch and learn how to place the cuts... well, I found out I need a template so I could glue the cuts perfectly.. the video I watched is this one, great one by the way!!  Thanks Ashley for making a video!!!

Well, one problem solved but now where I was going to get a hexagon template??  Well, I remembered I had seen a hexagon background for cards on Bird's card site.. She has lots of free templates for Silhouette... Thanks Bird!!!!  So, that way I would get the template and the cuts at the same time...

So I cut the background 3 times, one for each different pattern paper...  and that worked, I placed the template on the top of the brown cardstock, then added glued and the cuts where I wanted them...

It was easy that way and worked perfectly,  take a look at my card:


Isn't pretty? what do you think?  I must confess, I loved the result!! lol lol 
Pattern cardstocks are from Recollections, sentiment is from Fiskars, ink is rich coca from Memento, spellbinders are classic and scalloped ovals, flowers are from wild orchid, rhinestones, ribbon and pin from my stash!
