Kaleidoscope Hexagon Never Ending Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Recently while browsing either Facebook or Instagram I discovered a fun Hexagon Never Ending Card. I have made a square Never Ending Card in the past, but this was the first time I had seen a Hexagon version. Being someone who loves anything interactive, I had to give it a go.

I searched the internet trying to find some instructions, and while there was plenty of videos they weren't all that clear when it came to measurements, you need each triangle to be equal on all sides. Finally I went back to the original card I saw and discovered she had used a SVG file created by Lori Whitlock, so I visited her shop and spent $1.99 to buy the file ... much easier than wasting more cardstock.

The SVG file, included the long stripe to make the card base, three hexagon layers and envelope. I just used the base and then created my hexagon layers using ECD's Fitted Hexagon die set, this was easier for me.

To decorate the front of my Hexagon Never Ending Card, I used Simon Says Stamp Center Cut Kaleidoscope Background. 

The photos on this post don't really show how this card works, so I have created a quick video so you can see my card in action. After taking the video I did add the three sentiments to the front panel of the card as I thought it looked a little plain.

For the second page in my Hexagon Never Ending Card, I die cut a hexagon using blue cardstock that matches one of the colors used on the front panel. I stamped the Center Cut Kaleidoscope Background onto the panel using VersaMark ink.

I then stamped  "Hooray! On Your Birthday" onto the centre of the hexagon panel using black ink. This sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps Hooray Clear Stamp set.

For the third and final page, I used green cardstock and again stamped the background stamp used on the other two pages using VersaMark Ink. I then used Altenew's Birthday Builder Clear Stamp set to stamp the Happy Birthday all around the hexagon.
