Drunken Stampers #90 - What's Your Angle??

This week's Drunken Stampers Challenge is "What's Your Angle?" Your challenge is to use Triangles on your card. Here's a link to the Drunken Stampers blog for the challenge details:

For this challenge I decided to use a triangle tri-fold card. Easy peasy lemon squeezee!! Start with a piece of cardstock 12" x 4", score at 4" and 8" and then score the end sections diagonally to create your triangles. It is important when you are scoring to go in the same diagonal direction on both ends, or it won't fold in properly - ask me how I know that!!!

Here's the outside of the card
, I even cut the ribbon edges into little triangles. Something new I learned this week! Fold the edge of your ribbon in half and cut on an angle from the centre to the edges & VOILA!!!

And here's what the card looks like when it's unfolded:

Most of the supplies for this card came from the Scraptures September 2010 Scrapbook kit:
  • Days Away design paper from the On Holiday collection by The Girls Paperie
  • Bazzill Sea Water cardstock for the base
  • The Girls Paperie On Holiday Epoxy Charms

Other items I used included:

  • Creative Impressions, Twill Impressions ribbon
  • Pacific Point Ink (SU)
Be sure to check out the cards from the rest of the Drunken Stampers Design Team to see their takes on this fun challenge!

Thanks for lookin!!
