Going Geometric - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday once again,

It's been a hectic week with half term and preparing for my youngest son's 5th birthday today.  We're off to see Lego Batman at the cinema shortly.

The challenge set by Leo over at the Daring Cardmakers this week is to create a geometric pattern to use on your card.  I ended up using a really old stamp I found in my archives which I stamped multiple times then cut out by hand. I formed a pattern with the triangles and added a sentiment and a glitter cupcake die cut.


After making this card I ended up preparing for a demo I have this weekend and used the new Blooming Lovely range by Trimcraft to create a different take on the theme as it was still in my mind.


You can see a lot more inspiration from my fellow DT members on the Daring Cardmakers blog.  I hope you'll join in!

Enjoy your weekend!
