Today we're Creating with Stampin'Up! Hello Beautiful & Abstract Beauty Designer Paper.
In January you met one of our Guest Dream Team designers, Valerie Eilman. This week we are exploring these two new products with Valerie's designs. Today's creation is a very cute card using the hexagon dies in the Hello Beautiful Bundle--it's a super set of concentric geometric shapes that you can mix and match for some great cards.
Valerie used 3 sizes of the hexagon dies for this card. The fun thing about these hexagons is that they fit together so easily to make the awesome top card layer--and, all the designs in the designer paper coordinate superbly! This results in an unending variation of card fronts--you can make multiples just alike or tons with different paper designs.
Adding the gold shimmer ribbon and those fun hexagon embellishments add that sparkle & pizzazz to the entire card making it a superb design!
Stop back by on Thursday and see another fantastic design from Valerie--this one is amazing! Don't miss it.
