Triangle card and a fab deal!!

Hello!  Happy soggy Friday to you!  Is it raining on your head?  It is raining here and isn't supposed to actually quit until Monday! Normally I wouldn't mind even a little bit, but I have lots to do this weekend and the rain won't make it any easier to get done!  Oh well!  It will make the grass and gardens happy!  I have a fun little card to share with you today and news of an awesome deal from Stampin' Up!  One of those too good to pass up kind of deals!  Card first though...!

This is a Triangle card!  I have seen these little cuties all over the place and then one day while blog surfing came across one that my sweet and very talented friend Kelly Gettelfinger had made and I decided to give it a try!  It is always nice to add a fun new twist to cards!   

I fancied this one all up with some pretty DSP and some festive flowers and a happy, happy sentiment!  It opens at the top so you can add your personalized message on the inside!

Then I made a matching envelope to go with it!

Envelope with top flap up/open.

Here they are together! 

The card tucks beautifully inside!

Slips right down in there so you can close the flap and send it on it's merry way! 

The card is made from a piece of card stock that is cut at 4 1/4" x 10 1/2" and scored at 5 1/4".  Once you score it you make a pencil mark on the non-fold side at 2 1/8" and the you cut diagonals off on either side starting from that point up to each corner.

The envelope is a 5 1/2" x 6" piece of DSP.   You score at  1/2" on the 6" side and then run adhesive on the folded over 1/2" scored piece. Then you match that little folded piece to the left hand side (opposite side) and stick the flap down.  Crease your sides at this point creating the triangle shape and fold down the top flap. There you have it!

Now for that cool deal I mentioned!! Take a look at this:

If you purchase a Big Shot this month you can get free goodies!!  If you have already purchased a Big Shot then you can get a 15% discount on Big Shot bundles!!  Click that picture for more details and to get the Big Shot fun started!!!  I know that I use my Big Shot just about EVERY time I make a project!  It cuts, it embosses and in some cases does both at the same time! LOL  

Ok, be sure to email me with any questions!  I am off to get this day rolling!  Have a good one and try to stay dry! :)

I've never thought about making a triangle card, but I love it! I love that new DP too!
