Twofer Card Challenge #8: Geometrics

Happy Thursday everyone!!

This is my second post for the day. My first post is here with a sneak peek of a card I made for the todays post on CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog. I created the two cards below yesterday and wanted to post them in time for the Twofer Card Challenge #8: Geometric.

My first card was inspired by a card from this post from Anna Kossakovskaya blog. I of course used different colors and added my own touches because I never can copy a design totally.

I changed the background on my card using a stenciled mono print technique so I could join the CAS Mix it Up Challenge and AAA Challenge too. However, my card is not that clean and simple but oh well. I added the stenciled layer to a brown, A2 card base.


I shaded the *Altenew "Shattered Triangle" die cuts with three colors of Distress Ink-*Antique Linen, *Walnut Stain and *Vintage Photo, and adhered the layers to over my patterned layer.

I added sequins and a sentiment from the *Altnew "Label Love" set to finish off my card. I also went over the colors of the triangle with a *sparkle pen but it is difficult to see in my photo.

For my second card, I die cut the triangles and made them into a Christmas tree.

I added some rhinestones in gold and red over the tree, as well as a star from my scrap pile. The sentiment is Mama Elephant's "Merry Greetings" stamp set.

I added the little mouse that I had colored ages ago and was in my stash because the card "needed" something else.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a FABULOUS night!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Edited to note that I won an honorable mention from the Twofer Card Challenge for these cards!! I am so excited!!!
