Triangle Layer Cards

Some of the challenges for which I am a design team member have changed their posting dates - it means that at times, there may be as many as four posts for various challenges on the same day. As a result, it appears longer between my posts - so I decided to do some extra creating and make sure that my blog is staying active regularly. 

These cards are taken from a design that Close To My Heart released about a year ago. The original design was for a scrapbook page but Amanda Wesley redid it to fit a standard size card. 

Each of the triangle pieces begins with a squares that are cut diagonally, creating two triangles. I used the sets of triangles to create two cards - very different in appearance. 

The first card was splattered with the Lagoon Shimmer Brush first and then the triangles were added. I stamped a floral bouquet, coloured and die cut it and added it to the centre. A small sentiment was added along the left side and a handful of Bitty Sparkles were coloured and added around the image.

The second card used the exact same set of coloured triangles but I mounted them on a black base this time. I think the colours looks so striking against the black background. I used a baby stamp set and stamped the title plus the two animals. The animals were coloured and all pieces were die cut. I added a few red pearls along one edge of each triangle. On this card, I also brushed the red triangle pieces with the Red Shimmer Brush, just to add a little more interest.
