Triangle Star Card

This is a fold I've wanted to try for a long time, ever since I saw it on Stamp Owl's (Frances Byrne's) blog.  So when the Pile It On Challenge called for a fancy fold it was time for me to make a triangle star card.  I used Frances' tutorial which you can find here.
It's actually pretty easy.

Because I put some ribbon rose on the inside the card didn't want to stay closed, so I stuck a piece of velcro to the bottom of the star. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "Shine Brightly"
ink - Stampin' Up "Brocade Blue"
paper - Best Occasions light blue cardstock; Stampin' Up "Bella Bleu" dsp
miscellaneous - Nesties "circle and lacey circle" die; Stampin' Up oval and scalloped oval punches; the Cat's Pajamas "ocean" seam binding; Basic Grey pearls

Here's the challenges:
Pile It On #39 - Fancy Folds
the Cat's Pajamas TCPTUES177 - Create Roses with Seam Binding
Stampin' B #129 - Use 2 or more Spellbinders
Card Makin' Mamas #29- Get Punchy
Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes
Southern Girls #28 - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Use Dies and/or Punches
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll play along with the Pile It On challenge and make a card with a fancy fold.

  11. Hello! I LOVE this card! I saw it on Pile it on. There is rarely a card (or stamp) that celebrates Judaism and I just loved this card. I'm Jewish, so it is especially great at this time of Year (New Year's for us.) Thanks. xox
