Stitched Triangles. I was so happy when I saw the Right Triangle/Stitched Triangle stamp/die bundle the annual catalog in June. We already had stitched circles, squares, leaves, ovals, and whatever that shape is in Stitched Nested. Now we also have Triangles. I used the Stitched Triangles in my previous post for a Holiday card. You can see that project Here.
Birthday cards are a must in the eyes of paper crafters but most of us have a hard time with cards that aren’t full of flowers and leaves and all that girly stuff. Call them Masculine cards if you want but the fact is we can all be just as creative with them as we are with flowers. I put together a couple of stitched triangles and the big stamp from the Right Triangle stamp set for this fun birthday card.
I pulled in all the primary colors, red/yellow/blue/green into my card. You can never go wrong with some version of these colors, that’s why they are ‘primary’! The large striped triangle stamped on the Sahara Sand panel was stamped using the Stamparatus. Using the Stamparatus was a must in order to it lined up and full coverage of this really large stamp.
I worked and worked and worked with these shapes until I found what was most pleasing to my eye. Trust me, even us who make cards all the time still sometimes struggle. I am really happy with the final result of my Right Triangle card, especially with the placement of the sentiment on the angle.
I colored the Happy Birthday sentiment with Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin blends. Color the entire space with the light marker, then just the bottom portion with the dark marker. Use the color lifter on the top to get an ombre look.
