Triangles



When I saw that the new CASology word is "triangle" I thought it'd be a good reason to get out my Fresh Squeezed Stamps Trendy Triangles set. Nothing I had in mind seemed to be working & then I came up with this. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays Amber Waves set & is stamped in Memento Potter's Clay.  The leafy triangles are stamped in Memento Northern Pine.  I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder (leaves are sort of a triangle shape if you use your imagination!) on the left side & popped up the sentiment panel.  
Debated distressing or inking edges, but in the end decided against it. This is a mail friendly card, so that's a plus. I'm adding my card to "the lotteries" at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge--$50 would be spent so easily in their store! Thanks for stopping by & letting me know your thoughts.

Love your intrepretation of triangle, Greta! The embossing on the kraft looks so elegant with the sentiment banner!

Greta, the triangles just frame the sentiment and draw the eye there so wonderfully! I agree, the embossed leaves are reminiscent of triangles (maybe the pointed ends?). So glad you joined us at CASology!

I love those embossed leaves (and they do make a triangle shape). The patterned triangles are just perfect to add a pop of color! Again, I love the nontraditional Thanksgiving colors!
