Hexagonal border

Hi bloggers!  You have probably noticed the Hexagonal Border in a few previous posts as it has been a real go to border.  Shown here, I have used it as as frame for my focal element.  It looks lovely no matter how you use it.  You can easily cut it down in size to make it thinner or use it as a background.  I just love the versatility of it!  You just need to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing to win it!  Don't forget to use the Pinit button to save any samples for later inspiration to your Pinterest boards too!  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm, I hope you can join us back here then!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I have noticed it a couple of times and admired it each time. It looks so delicate the way you've cut it several times and used it as a beautiful background and I look forward to seeing lots more samples with this die used in so many ways xxx

Marion Scott said...

Yes Sue, I have seen this die used in previous samples and thought do I need another border die? After seeing this sample, I think the answer is yes
It looks so pretty as you have used it but I believe this will also be useful for male cards.
