3 Ways to Use the Triangle Split Card Design in Card Making

Playing with different shapes is all the craze for me right now. Don’t ask me why, just go with it! So today I have a Triangle Split Card Design to share with you. And I have three different ways you can use it in your card making.

Triangle Split Card Design

In order to create the split card design, you first need to create the triangular pieces. Start by cutting a square piece of cardstock. The cool thing about this design is that you can use a variety of different size triangles. Simply cut a 2 x 2, 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 inch square piece of cardstock. Regardless of the size of the square you decide to use, the concept for creating the triangle pieces is the same. Simply place the square piece of cardstock in your paper trimmer diagonally. You will be making a cut from corner to corner to create two triangular pieces.

Once you have the triangular pieces created, you can put together the split card design. Both of these cards feature a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper adhered to the card front. The first card showcases two 2 x 2 inch squares cut into triangular pieces. Adhere one triangle to each of the four corners of the card front. The second card features a 3 x 3 inch square piece of cardstock cut in half to create the two triangular pieces. Again, adhere the pieces to opposite corners on the card front. The patterned paper peeking out in between the triangular pieces is what creates the split card design.

Reverse Triangle Split Card Design

These next two cards feature what I will call a reverse split card design. The first card features 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock adhered to the card front. The triangle pieces were created with a 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper.

The second card features a reverse split card design. In this case, the 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of pattern paper is adhered to the card front. And the triangular pieces were created with a 4 x 4 inch piece of cardstock. It’s the exact same design, I just rearranged the layers of cardstock and patterned paper.
