Layered Triangle Cards - how to make 2 quick easy, very pretty cards

 If you have patterned paper and cardstock in your stash you are set to quickly make 2 of these fun triangle cards.  I have a video and a recipe below for you.

Here's the recipe:

Patterned Paper 4 1/2 x 4 1/2

Matching cardstock or foil 4 1/2 x 4 1/2

Same matching cardstock or foil 3 x 3

Based card is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 

Ribbon and embellishments to match - I used 1/4" copper ribbon and punched out shapes from the patterned paper.

I made a super short video if you prefer visual instructions. Click here to see the video  and to see these projects in different paper/colors. 

Cut the 3 squares into 2 down the center to make 2 triangles. Separate these into 2 piles for 2 cards.

Layer the 2 larger triangles so the matching cardstock peaks out the side.  Attach to the front of the card on the left, not perfectly centered.  Attach the smaller triangle on the left, again not centered.  Add embellishments. 

This design was part of our team challenge where they create a card, post it on our team page and then a winner is drawn randomly - an early bird on Friday and a Monday evening drawing. So many fun ideas, for Christmas, Halloween, Birthday and more.
