I didn’t think I needed the Stitched Triangles - Silly Me! This card is just one example of the many projects I have created with these wonderful stitched triangles.
Card Base: Cut Melon Mambo 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Whisper White paper 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp birthday greeting with Melon Mambo ink in the lower right corner of White Card Mat.
Card Front: Cut Whisper White paper strip 1 ¾ X 5 ¼
Cut Melon Mambo paper strip 1 ¾ X 5 ¼
I used the third smallest equilateral triangle. Cut 6 triangles from Artistry Blooms paper. I used two different papers from this pack that had Melon Mambo in the paper. You can make this design work cutting 6 triangles from the same paper.
Attach your triangles to white strip. Start at the left side of the strip, attach triangles - alternate the way the triangles are oriented to get them to fit across the strip. At either end of the strip, you need a partial triangle. I glue the triangle to the strip with it coming off the strip and then trim it.
Attach white strip to the Melon Mambo strip. Attach this strip to White Card Mat, ¾ inches from the top of card mat. Attach the white card mat to Melon Mambo card base. Attach Artistry Blooms sequins to card front.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
