Can you believe it? A day late. I made yesterday's bee card with the hexagon and today's challenge at 365 is to use a hexagon dominating
your card. I was perusing my blog reader and saw this sketch on Mercy's blog. So I pulled out my Stampendous bee and my BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers again :)
By popular demand (Deanna asked...) here is my tutorial on making a hexagon. Yes, I am a math major, but I was not going to get out my protractor to measure 60 degree angles!
1. I punched out a 1.5 inch hexagon out of a scrap of heavy vellum using my Creative Memories punch. I centered the vellum on the bee with temporary adhesive.
2. I used this narrow ruler and a pencil to create a border around the bee.
3. I cut by hand with scissors. I adhered it to black card stock, then cut again (eye balled it.)
