Triangle Fold Card

Hi again! This is one of the card designs I decided against for the showbox swap. I really like how it turned out, I just didn't have enough of the patterened paper to make 13 cards with...this was my first attempt at a Triangle Fold card and it was soo easy to do...I've had this paper for ages and haven't been wanting to cut into it cause then I wouldn't have it anymore (true sign of a paper hoarder...) I thought it matched a stamp set CiCi510 sent me awhile back, so I took the plunge and cut into it and am so glad I did! I used Elegant Eggplant as my base and this beautiful PP from Making Memories as the accent paper. I also love this reversible purple ribbon that I got at Michael's a few months ago (and I have to mention that I have been hoarding that as well...) Inside has the same PP with Whisper White over it and another paisley stamp in the corner. My DD has claimed this card to give to her art teacher, so I think I will have to make more...good thing the PP was 12 x 12 :)

p.s. The finished size for this card is 3 x 3, the next one I make will be 4 x 4. I will have to custome make any envies for these and due to them being square, the postage will be higher :(

A lovely card. What is the finished size of it? Do you have to make your own envelopes?

Sarah you are on a roll! This card is really neat and gives me an idea for some pattern paper I have that is really similar. Love it!
