"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

  7. A very pretty card!

    Thank you for showing the back-view! I was unable to watch the whole of the demo for this card shape on C&C, and I hadn't worked out how it was done, but now I know!! It would be a lovely way of using up the half card-blanks that I get left with, after I have made easel cards.

  8. I haven't seen this fold before. Interesting idea.
    Glad to see you are still crafting now and again (more than me probably lol).

    Hope all are well. x
