The Cuttlebug Spot Triangles Challenge

This is my second post for today, so if you're looking for the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, please scroll down.

Hello and welcome here, it's time for The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge!! This week it's all about Triangles...on a card, or a triangular banner, or even a triangular shaped card. You don't want to miss out on some awesome prizes.  And don't forget to use your Cuttlebug!

Challenge - Triangles

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I love it when a card comes together better than you image it!  I knew I wanted to use aluminum duct tape, but I wasn't quite sure how to incorporate it.  I decided to use it in the banner, but then there was the question of how to use the Cuttlebug with this card.  I was going through my embossing folders and saw the Cuttlebug's Herringbone folder...I knew it was perfect one when I took the embossed triangle out!

I also felt I needed a strip of something between the image and the banner, so I dug through my folders again and found an unlikely one that would work...there's a strip of dots and lines on the Sizzix's Snowflake Flourish folder, so I tried it and really liked the results!

And did I mention another plus?? It's a great masculine card too, we all know how difficult manly cards are to make.

Here's the metallic look of the aluminum duct tape...which you can find at your local hardware store.  It's basically aluminum foil, but it has adhesive already on the back.  I also like to attach the duct tape to a piece of cardstock before I emboss it...it keeps its shape better, and is easier to handle.

Recipe:  PP-Teresa Collins On The Edge Guitar, CS-Black & White, Flourishes SS-Tag Lines, CTMH SS-You Rock, CTMH Ink-Black & Grey Flannel, EF-Cuttlebug Herringbone & Sizzix Snowflake Flourish, Corner Rounder, Aluminum Duct Tape, Foam Squares, Rhinestones.

Cuttlebug Items Used:
Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder
Sizzix Snowflake Flourish embossing folder

An amazing monochrome card. I love the guitars on the front and your aluminium tape and embossing. Great sentiment inside too.
