Geometric Heart Card {Avery Elle}

Hello friends! As Valentine-Card-Creation season is upon us (wow, that was a serious mouthful. I promise, I'll never say that again,) I thought I'd pull another card out of my stash that fits the season. 

This is the very last card that I had published in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, in the February issue. This isn't as difficult as it looks. . .the hardest part is laying the triangles out evenly and straight. Would you care to give it a try??? 

1. Trim1-inch squares of cardstock. (Three colors is a good place to start. I used black, aqua, and glittered cardstock.)  
2. Trim each square diagonally in half to create triangles. (You'll need 20 triangles to create this heart.) 
3. Use my card as a guide and assemble the triangles to create a heart. Play with the arrangement of colors. I tried to evenly distribute the colors, and avoid having the same color triangles next to each other. There are so many possibilities though - do what you like! You could even just do one color to start.

Here's another card I created using the same formula, but for this I used fuchsia, coral, and gold cardstocks. This is a larger 5x7 card. If you have any questions, just holler! I had fun figuring out how to make this project! Thanks so much for stopping by!
