This Christmas Triangle Card is amazing and easy to make! But it looks so elegant. This is a continuation of The Crazy Cricut Lady’s unique cards. I love when I find a new card design. This one was on Pinterest. Also I love figuring out how to make the new designs I find!
This is the November 2021 Patreon Card for The Crazy Cricut Lady. The tutorial is free but to download the design you will need to first become a patreon supporter of The Crazy Cricut Lady site. This is completely separate from my site membership and does cost $1 per month. That helps me keep the rest of this site free and allows me to help pay for the site. One project per month is posted on my patreon site but you get access to all past projects when you join and help support this site. Consider joining my patreon supporters now.
This card must be mailed apart. If you need it at the bottom is some setup instructions that can be included in the envelope when you mail the card. You need an envelope that is 7 X 6 which you can make yourself with the tutorial here or it fits in an A9 envelope with a little extra room.
What you need:
- Very heavy cardstock for the base
- Scraps of cardstock
- liquid glue
- Foam tape (small piece)
- Download File available at Patreon
Paper Selection For the Christmas Triangle Card
I chose to use traditional Christmas colors for this card. Some of the embellishments are done with foiled paper for a little extra bling. You can use patterns for the lighter green if you want, but the other parts are a little small or covered for patterns. The base doesn’t have to be particularly heavy because of the two layers, so use any paper you would like.
Cutting the Christmas Triangle Card
Your Cricut will do the writing on the card. I used a black pen. The font I used was Cristalastic Script and it is available at Dafont.
There are a lot of little pieces in this project. Be careful not to lose them while cutting the rest of the project!
Assembling the Christmas Triangle Card
First, re-crease the fold lines to make sure they work properly. Then glue all the embellishments together. Look at the picture to see where everything goes.
Next, glue the green layers on top of the red layers. Make sure you line up the folds and the cut lines on the base cards. The two smaller triangles crisscross at an angle. See the design files or just eyeball the angle. It is a little less than 90 degrees at the center. Make sure the 4 points at the bottom are sorta different levels. Then glue the embellishments to the smaller triangles. Follow the pictures above. Fold the base card in half and set it up at a 90 degree angle. The outside two triangles of the glued smaller triangles fit into the slits on the base card.
Your Christmas Triangle Card is now done. Enjoy! The card comes apart and folds flat to ship and fits in an A9 envelope or you can make your own. See the assembly insert instructions below.
Assembly Instructions For the Envelope
· Take all the parts from the envelope
· Open the big triangle and set it upright with the fold at 90 degrees
· Slide the outside corners the piece with the angel into the slots on the big triangle.
