Just for You Triple Point

Although color challenges can be frustrating they provide an opportunity to use a different technique or fold. I found a fun fold on YouTube that I had not seen before, called a Triple Point Triangle Fold. It's unique but not difficult.

I made this for Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #451, which began on Friday, July 2, and will end on Thursday, July 16, 2021. This is a Crazy 8 Challenge. I selected Glacier, Smoothie, a neutral (Charcoal), and embellishments (pearls) as my four elements. 

I am not a fan of square cards but since this was the first time making it, I followed the directions found HERE. Note that imperial units of measurement used in the USA are added below the YouTube video. The finished card is 5.5" x 5.5".

Visit the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog for guidelines on our challenges. We have a new biweekly challenge beginning every Friday so there is always a fresh color board to try.

I am also submitting my card to Creative Creases Challenge #10. This is a fun fold challenge that you're sure to enjoy.

Happy Birthday USA!
