Instructions

Other Supplies: PVA Glue, Spray water bottle, Craft mat, Kraft card, Guillotine, 3 Colors of Ink

  1. Choose three colors of Ink and apply them to your craft mat. I applied them by rubbing the ink pad straight onto the mat.
  2. Spray your inked craft mat using the distress ink bottle. Do this lightly in places and more heavily in others to create a varied texture.
  3. Use a sheet of white card to dab and pick up the different colors of ink. Dry the paper with the Sizzix heat tool.
  4. Using your Big Shot Machine die-cut lots of the size of hexagons you would like to use from the Stacked Hexagons die set. Cut them from the card you applied ink to in step 3.
  5. Arrange the hexagons in a pattern and stick on gray card as shown in the image below. Apply this with smaller rectangles from brown kraft card without leaving gaps.
  6. Using a guillotine, cut your arranged hexagons into rectangles as shown below.
  7. Cut a small rectangle from cream card, apply Ink to the corners to give an aged look.
  8. Using black ink, stamp your choices of images on the front of the small rectangle card. Stick this element down using Sizzix foam tape for added dimension.
