Hello! Nichol here today with a colorful card featuring a layered hexagon die cut background. The Hexagon Top, Middle, and Base Plates are amazing for creating interesting layered backgrounds. Whether you go tone-on-tone or go colorful like I did today, the dimension and interest these dies add to a project is incredible! A simple layered die cut greeting, sentiment strip, and floral images were the perfect accents for this bold background.

The background was created by die cutting the Hexagon Base Plate from aqua cardstock, the Hexagon Middle Plate for teal cardstock, and the Hexagon Top Plate from dark blue cardstock. The frames were adhered one on top of another with liquid adhesive and backed with a contrasting green cardstock to really show off the incredible design and color. The background was adhered to a white side fold card base.

The Large Thanks Dies were die cut from white and dark blue cardstock and adhered to the card as shown. Nuvo Crystal Glaze was applied over the die cut greeting to give it a shiny, raised finish.

A sentiment from the Thanks and Giving Stamp Set was stamped on green cardstock with Versamark Ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, trimmed into a thin strip, and adhered below the die cut greeting.

Floral and leaf images from the Zen Floral Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with black ink, colored in with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating Zen Floral Dies before being adhered to either side of the Thanks greeting.

A white gelly roll pen was used to add some subtle accents to the flowers and finish the design.
