Stamp Review Crew - Six-Sided Sampler Edition


It's time for another go-'round with the Stamp Review Crew!!! This time, we are all playing with Six-Sided Sampler ... I keep forgetting about this darling set!!! Seems to me it has a LOT of versatility (even if you just wanna use one of the little hexagons with a sentiment, you're good to go!)!!

Sooo .... here I am with my MDS/eCutter pair-up again!!! I have been picturing this hexagonally-shaped card in my head for quite some time!! I imported the hexagon punch into my Silhouette software, traced it, copied it, and then moved it down so that the two hexagons were touching. I then "erased" the line that connected the two so that I had one connected double hexagon. Does that make sense??

Then, I copied the hexagon punch once more, traced it and sized it down a little so as to make a "frame" on the front panel of my card. It really is so much easier than it sounds. For those of you who have an eCutter and have been afraid of it, just JUMP right in with BOTH feet!!! You will be glad you did!!
