Honeycomb Hearts… and Caseing the Catty

This week at caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.au we’re CASEing the weddings section of the catalogue. I chose to CASE the card on page 67 (South Pacific catalogue) but I don’t own the Flower Shop stamp set or Pansy punch. Instead I decided to use the brand new Sweetheart punch with Gold Soiree designer series paper as the colours in that are similar to the project, except the Soft Sky. I had an idea for the centre feature heart and that was to create a honeycomb heart. Honeycomb balls are everywhere in decorating and I figured there must be a way to DIY. Thanks to my good friend Google, I came across this blog post which showed how to do it for a Christmas ornament. I just adapted the instructions to my much smaller heart. This did involve cutting glue dots into quarters – yep, I’m committed to the cause!

I decided to change the card to a box just for something different and decided to put the base colour underneath the acetate sleeve. This way you can change the base colour to anything you like! The top features are stuck to the acetate sleeve and will slide off when the recipient opens the gift box.

Did you notice that i did NOT use sequins?? Although I was very tempted, the sample used candy dots so I thought I’d do the same. I coloured in Very Vanilla dots with my Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker to match the rest of the gold.
