I used strips of cardstock to create my own diagonal striped paper, then stamped the hexagons from the Geo-Graphic set on the right side of the card. I stamped it again on white cardstock and paper-pieced the hexagons. Some hexagons I adhered flat, others I popped up on dimensional adhesive, and on 2 random hexagons, I cut out the colored cardstock with a craft knife to show the white card base underneath. So I have 3 different "heights" of white hexagons:
In the two "negative cut" hexagons, I stamped two little stars from the Metropolis set in inks that match the cardstock color of that row. The sentiment is from Word Salad, the exclamation point is from Alphadot, and the bigger star (stamped with Versamark ink) is from Smarty Pants. I finished off the card with machine stitching around the edges and baker's twine through one of the negative cuts:
This card was a lot of fun to make, and definitely challenged me to think a little outside the box. I even *chose* to do diagonal lines outside the constraints of a sketch. YAY!
Thanks for looking!
