I have wanted to try this out for some time now, and yesterday was the perfect time to sit down and do some fussy cutting. Is it only me, or does anyone else find fussy cutting relaxing? A bit like watercolouring, knitting and crocheting…..
Perhaps one day Stampin’ Up! might bring out a punch to coordinate with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder used here, but for now, each piece of the patterned paper had to be cut by hand. I have also used one of the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder along the bottom, and one of the Delicate Designs Folders along the top. Can you tell that I love my Embossing Folders?? 🙂
The Crumb Cake coloured layer is one of the pieces from the Pop Up Posies Kit which I have cut one edge off and popped under some Crumb Cake ribbon, and the greeting comes from the Apothecary Art stamp set. Oh and mustn’t forget that gorgeous patterned paper, which is from the current seasonal catalogue on Page 16, called the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, lots of beautiful papers in it and they are great for cardmaking.
The sketch I have used for this card is this week’s sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge site, and I always love a sketch challenge, so thought I would have a go at this one.
If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment.

This is lovely, Chris! You’ve used loads of my favourite SU! things on this card, and it has turned out beautifully.
Beautiful card Chris! Wow! Those hexagons are fussy to cut out and I also wish SU would come out with a punch! Your card looks spectacular with them though! Love all of the embossing! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
I think this is the most beautiful honeycomb card I have seen. Must have taken some patience for how perfect you fussy cut the hexagons. I did some and alas, not so perfect. Ditto on a desire for a punch!
I like your card. It must have taken a lot of time to cut all those out. Yes, I agree, Stampin’ Up! needs to design the punch to make it easier.
Wow you have a lot of patience but the results are beautiful!
