"triangle square" card for rogue redhead designs

I saw the idea for this shape of card on the create and craft channel ( I think it was Debbie Moore) and thought I'd like to give it a try. I like the way the whole card is made out of just the front piece.

I actually made this with really thin card as a trial and was surprised by how well it stood up, so thought it would be useful as a quick notelet.

I wanted the square part to stand out from the border when standing, so I masked off the border and inked with tattered rose distress ink. I added the splashy background by using the background stamp from the beach babes plate. I used it unmounted and rolled it up so I could just "roll" the pattern onto the areas I wanted.

The flower is from the floriculture plate and the words are from the bits and pieces set all stamps are from rogue redhead designs

Less is More challenge- 3

The less is more challenge this week is to make a one layer card using "3" as the theme. I decided to use 3 stamps all from one stamp company to make this card. It's that time of year when you need a thank you card for your child's teacher, and it's that much harder when it's a male teacher. But I think this one does the job okay.

All of the stamps (the lines, the splatter and the words) are by PaperArtsy and I finished the card with a simple punched gold star.
