Split Triangle Birthday Card

Birthday card using Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper

Designer Series Paper. It’s the one crafting item I have a lot of. In fact, I collect it; I love it. And I want to use it. Can you relate?

This fun design allows me to showcase all the pretty patterned paper in a fun and unique way. 

In today’s post, I share this sketch in conjunction with Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetly Scripted Stamp Set and a variety of its current Designer Series Papers. Please note: Most of these paper designs are retiring soon. So grab what you want before it’s gone. In addition, find the Sweetly Scripted Stamp Set online; it’s part of Stampn’ Up!’s Online Exclusives. I really appreciate the breadth of sentiments offered, including the ones I frequently use.

Split Triangle Card Design

Here are a few details about this design:

  • Card base of choice measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/2. I tried to choose a lighter color background so I could stamp directly onto the card base.
  • Designer Series Paper measuring 4 x 3. With your paper trimmer, turn your DSP on an angle and trim from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. This gives you two pieces.
  • Coordinating card stock measuring 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. Again, turn this on an angle and trim from the top right to the bottom left corner.
  • Adhere both pieces together. Glue works best as it gives you some wiggle room while getting the DSP in place.
  • Add to card front with one triangle in the upper left corner and the other in the bottom right.
  • Stamp desired sentiment with coordinating ink in the space between the two triangles.
