Easy Big Triangle Card in Ornate Garden

 This is another quick fun card that has your patterned paper doing all the "hard work".

Here's a video if you'd like to see me make this (the card making is about 7 min and the rest of the 13 min video is tips on the Stamparatus, our stamp positioning tool. Click here to see the video

You take a full sheet of cardstock 8 1/2 x 11, score on the short side 4 1/4", on the long side 5 1/2 so you have 4 equal quadrants.

Cut this sheet down the middle on the diagonal. You now have 2 "big triangle bases".  

Cut a piece of patterned paper 5 x 3 3/4 (or you can cut it 5 1/4 x 4 if you want less of the base showing), see my options below.

Make sure you slice the patterned paper on the diagonal considering which side you want showing, you can't simply turn over the piece as it won't fit.

Here's a very short video on making this card, showing this tip! Click here for the quick video

Add the patterned paper to the front.

Select a larger greeting and either punch it out or die cut the greeting. Add this to the front. Tip:  watch your adhesive and ensure you put it top right hand corner of the greeting to ensure the card opens :)

Stamp inside your card.  My card is made with Bumblee Bee cardstock (a deep yellow) so I added an inside piece of whisper white 5 x 3 3/4.  My ink choice matches the paper: Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee.

This card can easily be turned to be a vertical card, here it is with a different greeting, from the same set.

The stamp set is #RidiculouslyAwesome - such a great set!

You can get the stamps, ink paper (SIP!) in my online store. Don't forget we have a pattern paper sale offering a 15% discount til the end of the month. 

Let me know if you have questions

Happy stamping, MaryKate
