Welcome to the Monday Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea
Every Monday I post an idea for my local stamp store, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff
Today's idea is to use Honeycomb Paper. This fun project uses the honeycomb pad from Inky antics, along with the Clear Stamp Set Caterpillar HoneyPop, also by Inky Antics.

I made a Joy Fold card. All stamps are from the Catepillar set.
Blue textured card stock for the base card. Green gingham and polka dots for the mats.
The images are colored with Copics. His little glasses are shiny with glossy accents.
Peeled Paint distress ink around edges of image and sentiment.
EK Success rick rack punch.

The card opened. Here is the fun for this card! I cut apples from the
stamp set out of the honeycomb paper and adhered them to the folds, so that when you open the card, the honeycomb paper opens up! So cute!
Barn Door red distress ink used around edge of image.
A small Velcro half circle used to keep the card closed.

Honeycomb paper is fun to play with and adds an element of surprise when
the recipient of your card opens it. Packages contain one color and it comes in a variety of colors.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you have a chance to try this fun technique.

Until later..............
