And now for that Step By Step Tutorial

Begin by making your Card Base by trimming a piece of Thicker A4 Whisper White Cardstock to 10.5 cms x 30 cms
Using the scoring blade on your Stampin Trimmer, score the long side at 15 cms
Fold and run your Bone Folder along the fold to give a crisp edge 
TIP
Always fold away from the score line as this prevents the cardstock fracturing along the fold
Put your card base to one side to prevent contamination by inks

Next, trim a piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock to 10.1 cms x 14.6 cms
You will use this to mat (layer) the card front

Now trim a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 9.7 cms x 14.5 cms
Cut a small section of a Tea Lace Doily and wrap it around the top right corner of the Whisper White Panel. Adhere to the back of the cardstock using a little Tombow Glue or Some Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Lay this panel face up on a piece of scrap paper or your grid paper

Now for the stamping

TIP
Always select an acrylic block that is closest in size to your clear mount or photopolymer stamp, without it overlapping the sides of the stamp. This will give a more even pressure when stamping, and reduces the likelihood of inking up the parts of the stamp you don't want ink on (usually the outside edges of the rubber stamp)


Mount the sentiment of your choice from the Sassy Salutations Stamp Set in the bottom left of the cardstock, using Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink Pad.

Now select 5 of the hexagonal stamps from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set
Mount the first of these onto an acrylic block
Use a combination of Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe Classic Ink Pads to make your 'hive' pattern

REMEMBER
to clean your rubber stamp with a Baby Wipe before changing colour, and stamp off any residual ink onto a piece of kitchen paper,
Condition your stamp with Stampin Mist, before putting your rubber stamps away, to prolong their life.
Once you have created your hive pattern, you now need to select two of the stamps you have used, and using the same colour ink pads as before, stamp one of each pattern onto some scrap Whisper White Cardstock making sure you have a flat edge toward the edge of the cardstock to make punching easier.

Now, open your Hexagonal Punch, and with the base of the punch facing upwards (so you can see the hole in the punch, slot your cardstock with the stamped image facing you, between the cutting plates of the punch. Line up the edges with the punch, and PUNCH. Repeat this with your second stamped image.
Pop a couple of Stampin Dimensionals on the back of each of your punched pieces, and adhere them to your card front, lining them up over the top of the stamped images you placed on the card front. This will add dimension to your card.
Finish with using a little Chrystal Effects as a glue to adhere one of the co-ordinating In colour Blossom Accents over the Tea Lace Doily

Adhere the card front to the Mint Macaron Layer (Mat) using Fast Fuse Adhesive or Tombow,
Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the layered card front, and mount onto your Card Base

And there you have it ... your card is made!! Well Done!
