CONFESSION…(smile) when I first spied the Honeycomb embossing folder, I thought…it's okay…I don't NEED it. Then I started seeing it in use and changed my mind! It's such a deep textured folder and the geometeric shapes beg for exploration of uses.I'm hooked! I have a friend in mind to send this too. I'm going to write inside "Thinking of you…it's BEEn too long since we've seen each other!" and other bee type slogans such as " What's the buzz around you lately?"
One thing I find fun to do with this hobby is to try different color combinations. Sometimes I find inspiration from online decorating and fashion ads. AND I've been known to snap someone's shirt pattern too! LOL
Below is the color inspriation used for the card above:
Whisper White, Pool Party, and Elegant Eggplant became my color pallet for the card. While you think a bee motify might call for honey tones, I like to mix it up a little and try unexcepted colors.
