Thinking more about the whole "boxes" concept and how to use them for a card, I decided to try a different shape. Hexagons. And why not make the shape itself a card, without a base. So I made one long hexagon shape, cut it in 1 1/4" increments, and attached them all together to form a honeycomb.
I chose this double-sided paper for the pattern on the outside, and the honey color on the inside. The bee is from an old wood-mount stamp, and is flying outside his home with the help of a strip of acetate. To hide the strip holding the bee, I cut a length of the honey paper and attached it on top. The bee is facing the "happy", so "bee happy."
I was nervous stamping the "happy" directly on the hexie, so I did it on some washi tape first with stazon ink, and then just put the tape on. Much less stressful.
Like the others in this series (tiles, notebook paper, and antique bottles) it folds flat for mailing.
This is for the Moxie Fab World challenge to make a itty bitty card less than 3" (this one folds down to be 1 1/4" x 2 3/4") and for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a card with one really long side and one really short side.
Thanks for looking!
