Hexagons are really popular these days.  All the craft supplies have something hexagonal - stamps, paper, dies, you name it.

When they first came out I was crazy about them.  I bought quite a number of things: embossing folders, nestabilities, stamps, etc.  I keep on collecting hexagonal things but I can't remember using them.  Shh.......It is absolutly not something I'm proud of.  I am currently pushing myself to dig through my stash and use whatever that are still in the package (There is quite a big pile of those items!!)

Let me start with my nestabilities.  I'm using the hexagon die to cut out small ones and put them back together as a backgroun.  I have then tried different ways to add "Happy Birthday" and eventually settled on this version:

Yup, I feel a bit relieved, or guilt-reduced for using the dies.  They are fun to play with but I honestly wish I had cricut to do it for me.  Cranking out the same shape for two dozen times is a boring task.  Having said that, this boring part makes the recipient appreciate a hand-made card much more than those on the shelf.  I still thinkg it is worth the time.

This card is entering the challenge at CASology - Hexagon:
