Trendy Triangles [MIM #65, LIM #66, CFC #51]
What fun playing with triangles! I had a blast seeing what I could make from various background papers cut with the PTI triangle banner die. This is prompted by PTI's Make it Monday challenge to make a background from patterned paper scraps, and by Casual Friday's Happy Birthday challenge (Happy One Year, guys!)
The first card is kind of quilt-like, with one upside-down triangle focusing on the sentiment. Originally I had the red triangle pointing up to the sentiment, but the wide end matched size-wise to the word "heart" so I thought it looked better that way.
The card is based on a pin by Ali Edwards of a quilt from Blue is Bleu. I've had it in my head for awhile, knowing it would be a card one day:
Now I'm left with a desk FULL of triangle scraps (the die cuts three triangles at a time, which is a lot when you only need one).
So what's a girl to do ....
This one is a simple hexagon on dimensional adhesive.
a flower note card.
wait, there's one more ...
Reminds me of a kite string (although I don't know who actually had cute little kites with decorations on the string, it wasn't me, but I always loved pictures of kites like that). Embossed paper on one side, sentiment on the other. Zig zag stitching down the middle. Really, really easy. I had so much fun playing around. And now I have a whole set of cards! These would make a nice gift set, I think. They all have different sentiments from Dawn McVey's dress form set so they coordinate in that way too.
OK, OK, just one more ...
This one is for the Less is More "Yellow" challenge. Fun cards to make!
Thanks for looking!
