Stitched Triangle Dies Glimmer Christmas Tree CCS 495

by Joanne James8. November 2022 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & SketchesThis week's challenge is a sketch challenge and Cecile has asked that we overlap two inverted images on a square base:


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when making your card - you are also free to use a rectangular base if you'd prefer.

For my card today I did just that as I wanted my triangles to be isosceles as opposed to equilateral (GCSE flashback there!!) in shape. I don't use triangles often and whilst I was sure I wanted to make a Christmas tree from one of them, what to do with the other one? This is where I ended up:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I used some bright Parakeet Party glimmer paper to create my simple graphic Christmas tree, layering triangles cut from different gradients of colour to add interest. After much internal wrangling, I decided to use a plain white stitched triangle for the mirrored image; I think it works! I added a star to the top of my tree and a wooden pre diecut sentiment, both of which came from the Santa Express Memories and More card pack - I coloured them gold with (retired) gold Encore ink but you could get them same effect by heat-embossing them (I was short on time!) I added some holly made from a couple of diecut leaves from my scrap box and a trio of red rhinestones to balance my design and add a further pop of colour:


A simple sentiment on the inside completes my card. I'm linking today's card up over at Less is More where the challenge is to use two or more colours from the colour wheel - I've used red, yellow-green and green. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back soon with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
