If you notice in the pattern it is a combination of squares and triangles. To keep it simple I used a 4.25” square piece of Night of Navy cardstock (#100867) as the background and blue parts and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing Folder(#123128). I then cut 12” x 1” strips of the Red(#121790) and Silver(124005) Glimmer paper and then cut them down into 1” squares. I hand cut the squares in half to make the triangles I needed.
It then became a process of piecing it together. I started at one corner and worked my way around and then into the center. I followed the same process as seen in this earlier post. Tombow(#110755) Liquid Glue was my adhesive of choice.
Once I had my design done, I trimmed it down to make it square. Each block was never completely square so I trimmed them down to about a 4” square. Also the centers often didn’t always meet perfectly so I used Brights Glimmer Brads(#121006) or one of the Itty Bitty Shapes(#118309) punched out with Red Glimmer Paper to hide my efforts.
Each square was attached to a 4.5” square card base with the invitation information inside.
I can’t tell how excited I was to use my new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate(#125586) to make an envelope that fit PERFECTLY! It is my new “BFF”.
I purposely left the sentiment off.
