This Hexagon Happy Birthday Card is for my son-in-law’s birthday which is coming up!  He may even get it BEFORE his birthday!!  He is an Optical Engineer and will appreciate the dimensional look of the Hexagon embossing folder.  The “Ink on your Embossing Folder” Technique is a fun one to play with.  You can get different looks depending which side of the embossing folder you put the ink.
