Graphic Geometric Card: A Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop


Thanks for joining me today in celebrating Cath and her moxie fabness!  Knowing that Cath has a love for trendy triangles, I created this graphic geometric card with her in mind.  

Graphic Geometric Card
My inspiration for this card was THIS poster that I ran into on Pinterest quite a while ago.  I thought I would recreate the same pattern using colored vellum.  All that was required was a little math to get all of my corners and angles to match up. 


The simple, vintage typewriter-inspired font is a lovely contrast to the more crisp and modern geometric shapes.  The trick to getting the vellum to look just right is using an adhesive formulated especially for vellum.

If you are hopping along today, your next stop is #70, Dana Warren.

To Cath: You rock!  I will miss your daily inspiration on the Moxie Fab blog.  You have inspired me and my paper crafting in ways that cannot be measured.  

Much love!

Amanda, your way with shapes is just amazing to me. I love this. Fantastic idea to use colored vellum. I used to have a stash of that back in the olden days. Now you've gone and made me wish I had some again. And the math? I'm not sure I would have been able to figure out all the measurements and have it all come out so perfectly. well done!
