Pearl Embossed Metallic Hexagons

Up first we have pearl embossed metallic hexagons. Graphic patterns are so striking and what could be better than two sources of shimmer?

WOW! Gold Pearl and White Pearl Embossing Powder provide the first source of shimmer. While metallic cardstock adds the second with, Curious Metallic Electric Blue, and Stardream Metallic Lagoon, Quartz, and Gold.

Altenew Kind Confetti supplied a different confetti pattern stamp for each color of cardstock. I embossed each pattern twice, once in Gold Pearl and once with White Pearl and die-cut with a hexagon stacking die.

Next, I arranged and popped up the hexagons and added a thanks sentiment with Altenew Bold Thanks Die Set. The shadow is cut from Stardream Metallic Gold cardstock which coordinates perfectly with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder. Don't you love all that shimmer?!

Butterfly Hello

As you can see, I carried over the graphic element with a rounded square background on the second card. Here, I Gold Pearl embossed white cardstock with Altenew Wood Pallet Background stamp.

You gotta use your leftovers! So, I used Altenew Waterbrush Hello Die to cut the remainder of the embossed blue metallic cardstock from the first card. The leftover Lagoon cardstock provided the sentiment strip and rounded square mat. There are holes missing from the Lagoon matt, but you'd never know.

That cute little butterfly was stamped with Altenew Dream Big stamp set and all the elements were popped up with foam tape. Altenew Volcano Lake, Sapphire, and Persian Blue Crisp Dye Inks coordinate well with the metallic cardstock.

That's a wrap, guys! I hope you enjoyed these projects. Tomorrow is the last day to submit your projects to the WOW! Monthly Challenge on the Facebook Fan Page. No time to create? No worries, check out the gallery for more pearl embossing inspiration.

  1. Two super cards Amber and love the hexagons on the first and some great shimmer and love te look of the confetti stamped over them and finished with that lovely large gold shadowed sentiment which goes beautifully, and then the leftover pieces work well on the second. I love the wood pallet stamped background and the pretty butterfly and die cut and stamped sentiment. x
