This card was Cased from one my up-line, Catherine Harwood, had done showing how you can use an embossing folder like a stamp. I changed a few things and added the bee to my card. The background is done by inking up the inside of the Hexagon embossing folder with a brayer. You only need to ink the front panel of the embossing folder. Once you have the inside inked insert the piece of card stock and just press on the folder with your fingers. Do not run it through the Big Shot. You only want the lined image of the hexagons, not the embossed image. It doesn’t matter if the image is not inked evenly on your card stock, in fact it adds to the card if it is not. I used So Saffron ink on So Saffron paper. After this step I sponged some of the ink over portions of the card stock. Punch out a few pieces of Designer Series Paper with the Hexagon punch, add a vintage button, ribbon, a greeting and the bee and you have a finished card, quick and easy.

A friend and my daughter both told me how good Breaking Bad, the TV series, is so I have been watching back to back episodes this weekend starting with the first season. I’m not sure how many seasons or episodes there are but I got hooked on it like an addict gets hooked on meth …. Oh wow, I just did a Google search and found out there are 6 seasons so I have 4 more to go. The series has won 7 Emmys and the final season will premiere next month. So the show is all about a high school chemistry teacher who learns he has lung cancer and winds up producing and selling meth so he can provide for his families financial future before he dies. Great acting, some violence.
Have a Blessed Sunday,
