This card was made with hand cut hexagons from some Market Basket quick sale produce styrofoam (blueberries, mmm…). The hexagons were “blinged out” with salt, arranged to look like jewels, and glued to a layered assortment of patterned papers. The sentiment was put on understated textured paper so it wouldn’t detract from the eye candy on top or the peaks of yellow. The bright yellow is so fun in real life, I wish I had a fancy pants camera to show how much it pops!
The book in the background is the amazing How to Cook Everything by Bittman. I thought the cherry red accents looked pretty with the aqua blue in the card. And it was already sitting on the table. Brian and I use it ALL THE TIME.
The fun challenges that inspired this card:
Color Scheme: The Play Date Cafe
Use of SALT as BLING: Stampin’ Sisters in Christ
Hooked on Hexagons Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. You can find that blog here.
These challenges are fun! Play along!
Most importantly, thank you Melissa for all you do!
