Casually Crafting - Tic Tac Toe - Perfectly Pencilled Card

I'm back with another casual card for the Casually Crafting Blog Hop. We're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that love to stamp and love to share.  We share card and projects that are simple and easy to create with a few products and are perfect for the beginner and casual stamper.  Our blog hop goes live on the third Saturday of each month.  I hope you'll join us and "hop" around our group to be inspired!

This month we were challenged with the following Tic Tac Toe and asked to choose a line in any direction.  I chose the middle row - Banner, Hexagon and Happy and used the amazing Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper for this black and white Birthday card.  I admit I had to draw the Hexagon on the card stock before I cut it out - just couldn't get the shape in my head!

I love black and white cards.  Do you?


  1. Cut Black card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White card stock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  3. Cut 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper 2" x 5 1/4"
  4. Adhere to the Basic White card stock with middle edges butted up against each other.
  5. Wrap ribbon around piece about 2" from bottom and tie a bow on right hand side.
  6. Adhere to card base.
  7. Cut Hexagon shape using Paper Snips
  8. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  9. Cut Basic White card stock 3/4" x 2 1/2"
  10. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  11. Cut banner ends using Paper Snips
  12. Adhere Iridescent Pearls.
  13. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4 and adhere on the inside of the card.
