Hope you are all well. Best day of the week tomorrow as it is the end of my working week. Pity there are only two days to a weekend lol. We are busy at work at the moment as a few people are still off on their summer holidays. By the time I get home and get sorted there is not much time left for crafting, boo hoo.
I did manage to finish work a bit earlier today so scurried off up to my crafty room when I got home to have a little play. I decided to have a go at creating a patchwork background using the Sizziz Bigz Hexagon die. I saw this done on Monday by Crafty Lou when I went to a demo day at Sir Stampalot.
The card base was made using the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels One. I then cut out a red mat from coredinations. For the hexagon pattern I cut out loads of hexagons in different papers using the Sizziz Bigz hexagon die. Crafty Lou showed us how to create the patchwork by sticking the hexagons to double sided sticky paper. You can then cut out the shape you want and then just peel off the backing and stick it to your card. I did add some faux stitching around all the hexagons. For the topper I used one that I got from The Hobby House. I think she looks so cute. This was matted onto another die cut and I added some red stickles around the edge. The final embellishments I used were some ribbon and a bow and some dazzles from The Hobby House. The little christmas tree is a topper that I have had for a couple of years.
Thanks for popping by and hope you like my christmas creation. Look our for more coming along as I really enjoyed making this.
