Hexagon Backgrounds

Hello There!

I have a new addition to the Mix and Match Cards and Sentiments, this time there is a Bee theme. There is the little Bee that is used in the Bee Mine sentiment square and the backgrounds have a Honeycomb look with their Hexagon Patterns. The sentiment was made with Valentines Day in mind but the background panel and background card can be used for any occasion.

To show a slightly different way to cut the mix and match cards, I opened both the card and the sentiment square in my cutting software (Make the Cut), I ensured that my square was perfectly placed in the center of the patterned area of the card then removed the outside line only of the sentiment square. This allowed me to cut the patterned card with the sentiment as part of it, all at once, from one piece of card.  This does produce a decidedly 2 dimensional card but it does save on card stock and time if you are in a rush.

    No matter what I do I cannot seem to get into the Forum. It says my email address is already there but nothing I do seems to allow me in. Any suggestions?

      I’ve checked and your account on the forum and it is active so you should be able to log in with no problems so I don’t know what the issue could be.

    I love this one! I appreciate you sharing your hard work and your talent with us. I am really partial to bees. Our school mascot is a yellowjacket, and I like it, but most of us, the ladies that work at the school, go for the softer, gentler, bees…LOL. I am going to use this for valentines for my friends at work!

    Hi Bird!

    I have been M.I.A. for a while, but wanted to pop in and thank you for the goodies. I will have to find time to download and play. I really love this honey comb design. Thanks (as usual) for sharing!
