My Shape Lesson


I started this card knowing I wanted to create a card using the Octagon shapes I've seen on so much artwork lately. It was for a workshop so I cut all my Octagons first... dozens... then when I went to put the card together and tried fitting these Octagons together like they are on all the great designs I've seen I couldn't make them fit. I moved them around; stared a bit; and finally I realized.... what I really wanted was Hexagons!! Well, instead of re-cutting the shapes, I decided to work with what I had and this is what I came up with. The paper is Florentine, the flourish is from the March SOTM Potential and the flowers are from Just Blooms. The stamp I used is Quick Cards Butterfly.

Your card came together beautifully with the octogon shapes. Florentine is one of my favorite paper packs.
