My RAK to Angie

This is the card that I sent to Angie for Jen's Monthly RAK club. Angie received my RAK this weekend. You can read her comment here.


This card is one of the triangle fold cards. I always put my little card on top of a regular sized card. The triangle opens up for a greeting, then you can write lots of stuff inside the regular part of the card. I am actually thinking of doing something like this for my Holiday cards this year. I would print my holiday letter on the inside of the regular card, and sign the inside of the triangle part. What do you think -- good or bad idea?

This is such a beautiful card! i think they'd make wonderful holiday cards. i want to make one of these but don't quite know how. i'm sure i could sit down and work it out, but can you point me to a good tutorial? i also love the other cards you posted recently, awesome work. (My computer's been locking up, so i'm not taking any chances by trying to comment on each post.)

I love how you worked the tulips in with the butterfly. Every other card I see using this set is made with the butterfly image but doesnt incorporate the other images, it's nice to see a change!

I think this would make such a fun and fantastic Holiday card, a great layout and definatley something different!

Lucky Angie! I especially love the floral background...the colors are vibrant! The pearls on the butterfly are wonderful. You've got the mojo on.
I think these would be incredible holiday cards. The holiday letter inside is a great idea too. And a personal note inside the triangle is lovely, but of course you are a lovely person! Too impersonal when you just get the mass mailed letter, don't you think? Lots of work!
Will you post how to do the triangle fold?

Tina said...

Oh my, this is so beautiful and what a fantastic idea for the holidays. I, too, am working on an idea for mine.

Tanis said...

Of course that's a good idea! (Do you ever have a bad idea??) What a fun card!

Dana said...

Great stamping on this one! THe flowers and the butterfly look so nice together.
I've never made a triangle card, so I have a hard time picturing how it actually opens, but I say, go for it if it doesn't take too much work to make a lot of them!
