Honeycomb Card

A couple of days ago i saw this card from Crafty Maria's Stamping World on Pinterest.

Crafty Maria's Card
The honeycomb on hers was done with a die, which I do not own, from Stampin' Up .  I came up with several uses for a honeycomb background in my mind.  When I'm ready to do a card, I don't want to wait 10-12 days on something I need to be ordered and delivered.  So, I spent about 2 1/2 hours playing around in Make The Cut.

My objective was to have a frame that measured 4" x 5 1/4 with a honeycomb design inside.  I managed to get one done after multiple attempts of joining, welding, using the eraser tool, knife tool and a Boolean join (I still have no idea what that even accomplishes!).

When I cut my shape out, the honeycomb openings were much smaller than what I wanted so I sent my file to Okieladybug and asked her if she could figure out how to duplicate it with larger openings.  She spent about 5 minutes and had it all figured out and sent me the file back!

The flowers are from the Petite Petals stamp/punch bundle.  The sentiment is an old Stampin' Up stamp, punched with a scalloped oval punch.

This one is more like the original file I designed.  Okieladybug cleaned up the outside edges on this one too.

I have a couple more cards in my mind using this honeycomb!

I think I do like the smaller honeycombs. They both turned out great though!

I love them both Linda. I don't think I would have noticed them being different sizes at least on here.
But after you know it you can tell. I think I like the smaller one better. But the middle card is my favorite card.
