Regatta Father's Day Card

While I was playing with my hexagons the other day, I thought of another way to highlight the Regatta paper, rather than just the colors of it.
Using Cricut Artbooking Collection, I cut out the hexagon layer.  I then cut pieces of Regatta to go behind some of the hexagons.  I didn't include the sale boats or anchors from the paper packet because my dad isn't into the nautical scene that much. The hexagon layer was wider and taller than the card.  I trimmed it after the rest was adhered to the card.

The large hexagons are from Hexagonal Patterns (C1626).  Looking at the picture now, the Glacier and Pomegranate hexagons weren't supposed to be orientated the same (darn it!).  And if I were to do this card again, I think I'd raise the large hexagons with 3D Foam tape.

Happy Father's Day has been heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  The saying is from Say it All (Hostess Rewards set C1632).

The Flaxen cardstock has been direct to paper rubbed with Flaxen ink to give it the mottled look.

My husband liked this card.  : )

So I guess I played along twice with Color my Heart Color Dare this week again, and participated in the Between the Folds (BFT) challenge!
