Triangular Star card with Petaloo and Graphic 45

Hello My Dear Stamper Friends:

Today is the last day of the "10 Days of Christmas" 
celebration Blog Hop
with "Petaloo" and "Graphic 45"!

after seeing all the gorgeous projects done by the DT 
at Petaloo's blog
my turn, as part of the DT,  is to share with you All this
 very nice shaped card for today's Hop 
using the gorgeous "Petaloo" flowers 
and "Graphic 45" papers 
from the collection "It was the night before Christmas" ..

a Triangular Star Shaped card!

On the internet I saw various sites with the step by step...with several measurements...
I did simplify things and instead of measuring and tracing with pencil and rulers 
I found out to do it in a quicker way just by
- cutting an equilateral triangle,
- scoring some lines with the score board
- folding and that's it!

Triangle star card details

But I will be sharing BOTH ways, mine is in black paper and the white one shows the tutorials found over the internet with the various measurements
You will choose which one to use..
but both gets you to the same place!

NOTE: MY way will leave you with a tiny space when folding the card on the top but this way it is easy for folding, you have more flexibility to make the folds it is not as tight as with the original tutorials...specially since this card needs extra space to tuck in the triangles ...
here are the step by step
step 1:
- cut paper @ 10 3/8" X 12"
- on the 12" side, find the middle (6") from that point up to the opposite point trace a line, cut. Repeat same on the other side.
Result: an equilateral triangle.

Triangle star card step by step 1-2

 step 2: trace lines and fold
- place one side of the triangle against the side of the board, score @ 5 2/8" and @ 7", repeat on all sides.
- Crease and Fold

OR white paper (tutorial found on the internet)
- find on each side the center point (6"), trace lines and make a 1st triangle, fold
- from that center measure 2" on each side, trace lines, to make a 2nd triangle, fold lines.

step 3: crease and fold

step 4: tuck the triangles inside to lock the shape

 I hope you will give it a try! 
It looks more difficult than what it is...and with my simplified version even more...no need to measure in extra places and trace with rulers...just cut the triangle, score 6 lines and fold and that's it!

Thanks for the visit! 
hope all your Christmas activities are going smoothly 
and remember 
to enjoy each moment of this wonderful season...
it is always too short!!!
