Trendy Triangles...


Happy Friday-Eve!  Can you believe it's the last Thursday of June? Already we're having our final week with Lisa Spangler on board as our CASE Study muse. This year is flying by so fast!

So today's card is a little more 'abstract' or as some people may call it, 'random'. But when you see this week's CASE Study, I'm hoping that you'll get where I got my inspiration from straight away:

Check out the original post of this card here.

Triangles. Trendy triangles. I kept my triangles super simple. I loved the inked triangles on Lisa's card, but patterned paper triangles will have to suffice for my own card. :) I also took notice of the one-word sentiment: so sweet and certainly packs a punch.
tips and tricks
  • I don't own any triangular shaped dies, but it's easy to cut out an equilateral triangle if you have a square shaped die (or you can measure and cut out a square of paper). Simply measure the midpoint of one of the sides of a square and draw lines from it to the corners on the opposite side. Cut out and voila: Equilateral triangle.
  • To keep the design flowing through both triangles, I lined up the pattern on both triangles. It's a tiny thing to do but makes the patten of the triangle easy on the eye.

As always, thank you soooooooo much for stopping by here today. Your visits are always appreciated whether they're directly to the blog or via a reader/email. (Speaking of which, my Feedly is overfeeding at the moment with a gazillion unread posts from inspiring places on the web. Anyone else guilty of overfeeding their blog feeders? So much inspiration, so little time to catch up on it all!)
