Retro Hexagon Moon

It was another chilly day here but the sun was out so that made it a little better. I had a nice day with Andrew, we ran errands and had some lunch. He had dinner with the people from his a cappella group for one of the members birthdays tonight. I watched some TV and relaxed for a bit. Sometimes it’s really nice to just be, don’t you think? I’m off to Manhattan for a bit this morning, it’s supposed to rain again but be in the 40’s so hopefully that will get rid of some of the snow!

Today my card starts off with a base of Baked Brown Sugar. I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die to cut out a piece of Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla. I adhered the Coastal Cabana piece to the card base and randomly filled in the empty spots with the other two colors. Next up I flagged a piece of Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper and adhered that to the background. My greeting is from the Love You to the Moon Stamp Set, is stamped in Coastal Cabana and cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies. A piece of Tangerine Tango, also cut out with the same dies, is behind that. Under that is a piece of Very Vanilla and I punched both ends with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, they’re adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the way the Hexagon Hive looks when it’s randomly filled in and how cool is it that the double punch of the Scallop Tag Topper fits behind the Chalk Talk Framelit? I hope you enjoyed my bright, bold card for today. Thanks, as always, for stopping by and have a great Sunday!
