Triangle Star Card


Hi everyone,

Recently while checking the blog updates on my Google Reader I came across a blog called Mariannes Papirverden and she was showing a Triangle Star card that she had created.

I am calling it a Triangle Star card because the star is made using a triangle shape and all the points are triangles and there are already a number of cards out there which are called Star cards so I figure this will distinguish this one from the others a bit better. I can be so confusing when one card has the same name as another.

I loved the idea so much that I had to make one, I actually ended up making two and this was the second one. I will be sharing my first one in a week or two’s time. These are really easy to make and all you need to start is a piece of card that is 12 x 12 or 30cm square.


Here is a side on view of my card. I made this one for a group of friends to recreate for our project for a club I attended last Friday. It was my turn to select a project for us all to make.


Here you can see the inside of my card.


And one more view of my car when it is fully opened up.

Stamps: Punch Bunch – SU
Paper: White; Green; DP
Other: Pink Ink; Bird Punch; Flowers

Thank you for leaving the comment on my blog today about my messed up post!! I did know how to fix it. Know why? Cuz I did the same thing about 6 months ago!! WHAT?! I KNOW! Wasn't my first and won't be my last!! But I am feeling better as so many gals jumped to my rescue and told me (you in this case) how to fix it and others not to worry about it. I so appreciate how fast it all happened and wanted to express my gratitude to you about taking the time to leave a message to help me. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Women truly rule the world!! LOL!! Hugs!

Frances, this is fantastic! Thanks for the links back to the Norwegian -- boy is Google translation kinda crappy -- I've never actually used it before, but I know how colloquialisms can get! But I think I got the star figured out -- stay with equilateral and I should be OK. I'm totally seeing this in blues and whites for Jewish holidays, I'm always looking for ideas for something special for my Jewish friends!

Frances, I was going to send you an e-mail but the link to your e-mail address would not work on my comptuer for some reason.
I followed the trail to the instructions and had a little bit of trouble with the translation. I thought I had it figured out but my card will not close as much as yours so I think I have the measurement between the two folds wrong. I'll play with it to see if I can figure it out. But if you have a minute and wouldn't mind sending me that measurement, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.
