Triangle Week: Stitching

Tracy Schultz GCD June Hooray

 Are you enjoying triangles week so far? I know I am! I have a couple fun cards to share with you today that incorporate both triangles and stitching on them. The first one is clean and simple and perfect for a birthday, an invitation, congratulations, or even a new baby (just change the sentiment out).

 To create the pennant banner, I cut triangles from 1" squares of paper and pierced holes near the top edges. Using a needle and some embroidery floss, I back-stitched the holes and connected the little triangles together making my banner. I finished each end of the banner off with a tiny bow out of the embroidery floss.

 For my second card, I went a little triangle crazy! I cut triangles out of some fun patterns from the Bonjour collection, then pieced them together like a quilt. I faux-stitched around the edge and adhered my paper quilt to my card base.

I just stitched simple X's and french knots, then cut the oil-cloth out in a triangle shape. I attached a toothpick to the back of it and then the entire thing to my card base.
