TMR 94 | Triangle Birthday | Geometric

It’s time for a new challenge at The Male Room! I didn’t get to play along with the last one due to having been ill so much this last month or so, but I’m glad I was able to get something made for this one. As I’m trying to get caught up and back on track with all my DT work I decided I wanted to make something quick and simple. The triangle stencil from Skull and Cross Buns seemed perfect for our Geometric theme, so that’s what I decided to use as my starting point.

I first applied the Triangles Pattern Large Stencil to my card base and pressed white ink through it until I was happy with the coverage. I then shifted the stencil ever so slightly and then applied embossing ink through it, before coating with Simon Says Stamp Steel Navy embossing powder. The embossing powder did also stick to some of the areas between the triangles, where my stencil had been stuck down, but I kind of like the messy look it created.

Once I’d finished my heat embossing I decided that I would keep the rest of the card simple. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Quirky Sentiments stamp set, also from Skull and Cross Buns, and added that to the bottom of my card. I heat embossed it in white to make sure it would stand out nicely from the rest of the card. As I was heat embossing over areas of heat embossing I stamped and heat embossed three layers to ensure that the blue embossing beneath was properly covered.

As a final touch I took some Nuvo Drops in Simply White and added a couple of clusters to opposite areas of the sentiment, completing the card.

I’m pretty pleased with how this card turned out. It’s a bit messy and imperfect, which I normally do not prefer, but I feel like it works really well for the particular design. The blue and white together help give some nice dimension to the triangles so that they really pop off of the kraft background. It was fun to make, and fairly quick which is what I was after.

Love,

Lady Joyful
