June Christmas Card Challenge

Sylvia Durocher's monthly Christmas Card Challenge for June calls for triangle(s) and the colour green. I started out with piecing together a background of mostly triangles from assorted papers.

I used this graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet designer paper as the focal point because the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Blog is looking for nutcracker or toy soldier-themed cards.

The envelope for this large (8 X 5.25 inches) card is a red "Aura" A-9 Euro Pointed Flap Envelope from I added a label from the same pad of designer paper so the address will be readable going through the post. One more Christmas card made. I even finished the inside so it is truly ready to use come December.

Charmaine, Excellent background! I made a few of these backgrounds in the past. Math was not my strong point so figuring out angles was challenging. I love my SU Die which makes it easier. I like the soldier accent. Thanks for joining my Christmas card challenge.

I do like the background you've created and the way the triangle focus you on that wonderful Nutcracker image! Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with our Theme challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown. Deborah, DT.

That's a great way to add interest and texture to the background, and wonderful nutcracker image and sentiment. Thanks for joining us at the Christmas Card Throwdown.

I love how you've managed to get pattern and texture onto the background but the card is still not too busy. He makes a great focal point.
