Welcome back crafty friends ! Today I’m sharing Card 2 of 10, design especially for my custom 5 x 6 x 2.5 inch Memorydex box.
Card two was designed with another cut file by Paige Evans called Honeycomb Background
I’ve edited the Honeycomb cut file to make it easier to stitch on, if you enjoy that. I always think it adds a lot of interest and texture. After cutting it out, I pierced holes with a pin, then chain stitched with 6 strands of a variegated DMC thread. The yellow odd shape is the cut file for the card. I cut two, one from white AC Cardstock and one from pattern paper. After securing them together with a bit of tape, I machine stitched all around the edge.
This is what the cut file looks like when you open it.
Use this link to download the Studio3 file.
The Studio3 cut file will download in a ZIP File. Once it’s on your desktop, double click the ZIP File and a folder pops out. Double click the folder and you’ll see the cut file. Drag it into either your Silhouette Library or right onto a mat in the Silhouette Design Studio. Away you go.
If you don’t have a Silhouette and want to work with an SVG, send me an email. It’s Kellymadeit.firstname.lastname@example.org and I’m happy to send you the SVG. If you want to do the entire project, I’ll continue to send you the SVG each week, for each new card. You only need to contact me once!
There’s two sizes of the hexagons in the cut file. The larger one is to paper-back the honeycomb, like I have. The smaller one is if you want to pop up a hexagon or two. That would look cute too. I left four spots in my honeycomb blank so I could add a title with alpha’s from my stash. We all have lots, right?
Not keen on Bee You? How about Bee Kind, Bee Happy, Bee Still, Bee Silly. I’m sure you can think of something fun.
The Pebbles Paper collection I’ve used has cute little bee stickers. If you don’t have bees in your collection or stash, I’ve included a little bee cut file too. Just size it to fit your design.
Finally, to add a bit of whimsy. I made a small hole on the edge of my card to add a dangler. Snoop through your stash, make it your own! Fun and pretty !
Come on back next Sunday for Memorydex Box Card 3
