I’ve got a little sneak peek from the 2013 Spring Catalog to share with you today…I got my order yesterday and I couldn’t help myself, so here you go!
I made this card for the Paper Pal Arts PPA148 – Season Greetings Color Challenge. Here are the colors for the challenge:
Here is the list of products that you will need to make this card:
- More Merry Messages (126400 wood, 126402 clear)
- Jolly Bingo Bits (120857 wood, 121187 clear)
- Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available Jan. 3, 129378)
- Decorative Label Punch (120907)
- Always Artichoke 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (121000)
- Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (117157)

- Flourish Designer Frames (127835)
- Silver 1/8″ Mini Brads (122941)
- Always Artichoke & Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers (119701)
- Always Artichoke Classic Ink Pad (126972)
- Crumb Cake Card Stock (120953)
- Paper-Piercing Tool (126189)
- Glue Dots (103683)
I started by embossing a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Crumb Cake Card Stock with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. Then I embossed a 1″ x 5″ strip of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke DSP with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder too. I used the embossed paper as a guide and I hand cut the hexagons and adhered them randomly to the Crumb Cake panel. Then I wrapped a 5-3/4″ piece of Always Artichoke Seam Binding around the Crumb Cake panel and I adhered it to the back. After that, I stamped the sentiment in Always Artichoke ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock and I colored the Poinsettia image with my Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped that image next to the sentiment. I punched the sentiment out with the Decorative Label Punch and I adhered it over the Seam Binding strip. Then I placed the Flourish Designer Frame over the sentiment, pierced the holes and attached it with two Mini Brads. I finished the card by adding a bow next to the sentiment with a Glue Dot and adhering the Crumb Cake panel to a Crumb Cake card base.
Trimming the little hexagons took about 10 minutes total, but the rest of the card was really quick to put together. I think that the Honeycomb Embossing Folder is going to be one of my favorite new tools in the Spring Catalog. I’m planning to show you a few more sneak peeks over the next few weeks, I can’t wait to play with all of my new toys!
