Farmhouse Hello

  I saw a fun scrapbooking technique on Two Peas in a Bucket on my YouTube feed the other day, and I thought it would make a really fun card background! Paige Evans used a diagonal triangle pattern as a page background, so I adapted her idea to make a fun country-themed card.

Using the last itty bitty scraps of my Stella and Rose collection papers, I punched a variety of triangles and staggered them over my kraft paper base. Then I ran the whole shebang through my Big Shot with a chicken wire embossing folder. So fun!
I would be neat to adapt this idea for use with other geometric shapes as well. The embossing creates a neat quilted effect, and real quilt patterns could provide all sorts of inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!


  1. Lovely card. Love what you did with the triangles. I am pinning it for inspiration! Thanks!!!

  2. I love it! I could totally see this as a lovely background for some kind of kitcheny wall hanging...cook one up :)
