Tutorial: Triangle Cards

Since the July – December Mini Catalogue is launching soon, we crafters are starting to get in the holiday spirit – so I thought I’d show you a simple card layout that’s easy to make in multiples. This could be a great design for your stacks of holiday cards this year, and best of all, it’s made with Designer Series Paper you can get from the annual catalogue … in fact, this paper is on sale for 15% off until August 2nd! What a deal!

Measurements:
Cardbase – 5.5 x 8.5″
Contrasting cardstock – 4 x 5.25″
Designer Series Paper- 3.75 x 5″

Today, I’ll be making a set of four cards. You could easily make just one of these cards at a time, but if you make multiples, you’ll have more options for the mix-and-matching that comes later.

Use your trimmer to cut your DSP diagonally, from corner to corner.

Then, take the two pieces you just cut and line them up as if you didn’t cut them. Rotate them so you can cut diagonally from the opposite corners.

You’ll end up with this:

Repeat with each of your DSP layers.

Now it’s time to mix and match! Play around with your triangles – including flipping them from front to back – to find combinations you like.

Then, attach your DSP triangles to your contrasting cardstock layers. There will be borders around all the edges and in between the pieces.

Now attach them to your cardbases.

And finally, decorate as desired!

You can see how easy it would be to make a whole stack of these – in fact, I think I’ll do just that when the weekend rolls around! Don’t forget to check out the product list below to see what I used to make these cards!

Once you’ve made your own triangle cards, please share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!
