3D Trianagle Cards Try something new

I saw one of these cards on an earlier Mo post and fell in love with it, My inspiration can be found HERE I had to make one, and knew it would be perfect for this weeks challenge "Try Something New". But alas the entire post was in French and it didn't have instructions. But then something stood out, and I saw something that looked like a link, so I clicked, and Ta Da it was the link with the directions.

But guess what, they were in French and no translation button. But numbers are numbers, and measurements are measurements, and after all she does have a picture tutorial and I am visual. So after all that is said and done, here is my take on the 3D Triangle Card. I just made mine a little bit bigger.

So here is my recipe plus the link so you too can have the visual of how to place the 3 squares: HERE (Hers are 5 x 5 for the cardstock and 4 3/4 and 4 3/4 for the patterned pape).

3 pieces of Card stock at 6 x 6 - Score Diagonal
3 pieces of Pattern Paper at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 cut at diagonal
1 piece of Velco so you can fold it flat if you choose to mail it.

And, I bet you guys didn't know I could read French..

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

1. The Pink Elephant: HERE Layers - at least 3
2. Wild Orchid Crafts: HERE Shapes - Use 3 different Shapes - Well my card is a different shape, the circle and the nestie, 3 different shapes..

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE

I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.
