I have been fascinated with these honeycomb forms since I was a child. It was the next thing to magic the way they collapsed flat and just as easily returned to their shaped form. It was only recently that I discovered these fun creations had a name—sliceforms.
I found the pattern for this solid sliceform heart on the Extreme Cards and Papercrafting blog. I imported the PDF file into Make-the-Cut where I cleaned up and refined the file.
I wanted to incorporate the heart sliceform into a greeting card, so I also designed the card base and liner in MTC. All the card pieces were cut with my Zing electronic cutter.
The card base was cut from plain white cardstock. The front of the card was cut from Robin’s Nest Glitter Gold Chipboard. The sliceform and inside liner were cut from Robin’s Nest Pink Bourdeaux Vellum.
The sliceform was suspended in the card front frame with fishing line. Dew Drops were added to the front of the card for accent. I think this makes a stunning card!!
