2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog (Holiday), Christmas, General Cards, Seasonal - Winter, Stampin' Up!, Tree Angle/Stitched Triangle

Stitched Triangle Tree

Have you ever started one project and then got waylaid by an idea and suddenly you are doing something completely different?  That’s what happened with this card.  I was trying to CAS (copy and share) something I had seen and cut the wrong size pieces.  Instead of just throwing them away, I was trying to figure out a way to use them….and this is what happened: I was die cutting some triangles using the Stitched Triangle Dies for a framed sampler and cut the wrong size triangles.  This is a great die set as not only are there lots of triangle dies in all different sizes, but there are different kinds of triangles too – Right Triangles, Equilateral Triangles and Isosceles Triangles (thanks to my geometry teacher that I even remember that!) The names don’t matter, you just need to know that you have lots of choices! By layering the three triangles on top of each other, I discovered that they look like a Christmas tree.  Now all I needed was a tree trunk.  I wanted to keep the same stitched look as the triangles, so I chose one of the Rectangle Stitched Dies and a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to make the trunk. I used a piece of the Tis the Season Designer Series Paper for my background and then used dimensionals to pop up the tree a little bit.  For a bit of flying by the seat of my pants putting this together, I do like how it came out. If you would like to try this card, these are the supplies that you will need:
  • Stitched Triangle Dies
  • In The Pines Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Rectangle Stitched Dies (tree trunk)
  • Soft Suede Cardstock – Cut 4 ¼” x 11”; Score and fold at 5 ½”, plus a scrap for tree trunk
  • Shaded Spruce Cardstock – Cut 5 ¼” x 4”, plus scraps for 3 triangles
  • Tis the Season Designer Series Paper – Cut 3 ⅞” x 5 ⅛”
  • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 5 ¼” x 4” (inside) and ½” x 2 ½” (sentiment)
  • Ink: Shaded Spruce
  • Gold Metallic Trim – from Forever Greenery Combo Pack
  • Gold Foil – Scrap for Star
  • Adhesive: Stampin’ Seal, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
Happy Stamping! Patricia
