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
