Anyone for Triangles?

by Joanne James14. March 2014 09:25

Yay it's Friday - the weekend is almost here! For today's card I thought I'd try something different with the sketch over at Retrosketches this week:

Geometrical patterns have been on-trend for a little while now, with stripes, chevrons and hexagons all very popular, and this trend has continued into 2014 with triangles. Lucky for us that Stampin' Up has a great Geometrical stamp set and co-ordinating triangle punch for perfectly punched triangles every time along with the bold and bright geometrical designs of the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper in the current seasonal catalogue and it was this that I used for the basis of my card:


I decided to use the triangle as the repeat image for my patterned layer and used a few additional stamped ones to break up the white space on the top layer in co-ordinating colours. When it came to anchoring my sentiment banner, I didn't want to spoil the sharp angles of my card with a button and twine as in the sketch, but what to use instead? Then I remembered - the little triangles in the Essential Wooden Elements set would be perfect! I simply inked these by pressing into the ink pads of my chosen colours and arranged them to echo the pattern of the DSP - perfect!

I hope you like today's card; I have some fun things to share with you this weekend, so do pop back to see what else I've been up to. Until next time, happy stampin'!
