Together Always (Day 3 of 3 - Triangles)

Today’s triangle card is a bit more modern and contemporary.

Red cardstock triangles burnished with Fired Brick Distress ink lend a splash of color and highlight the stamped images.

A combination of Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities creates an elevated focal point for the sentiment and tandem bicycle.

Card Instructions:
  • Score vertical lines on the front left edge of a 4 x 5 ½-inch white card.
  • Cut one small and one large triangle from red cardstock and burnish with Fired Brick Distress Ink.  Stamp tire tracks with black Memento ink.  Adhere the triangles to a 3 ¾ x 4 3/8-inch piece of white cardstock with dimensional foam.
  • Stamp sentiment with black ink in the lower right corner.
  • Attach the mat to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam.
  • Create a dimensional circle embellishment with Circle Nestabilities and stamp the sentiment with black ink. Layer the circle components with dimensional foam.
  • Ink the bicycle with black pigment ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  Trim the image and layer over the circle with dimensional foam.
  • Attach the circle embellishment over the points of the triangles with dimensional foam.
  • Accent card with crystal gems.

Thank you for joining me this week.  Have fun using triangles in your cards!
