I Love Math Challenge #12

Hello everyone and welcome to a new I Love Math Challenge!

This is the twelfth challenge. If you're new to my blog, you can find all about the challenge here.

A theme for this challenge is picked by me: GEOMETRIC SHAPES on CAS (clean and simple) BIRTHDAY CARDS.

"Geometric Shapes can be defined as figure or area closed by a boundary which is created by combining the specific amount of curves, points, and lines."

List of geometric shapes:

  • circle
  • triangle
  • rectangle
  • square
  • polygons
  • parallelogram

CAS (clean and simple) guidelines according to CASology blog:
  • One main image
  • Lots of open space, uncluttered
  • Limited layers & embellishments
  • Quick & easy to recreate

And now inspiration from the team...

First couple words from our new team member, Valentina.

'My dear crafty friend Milka invited me to join as a fourth member of a wonderful Design Team in I Love Math Challenge.
I was honored and really happy to be invited since this is my first time to become a member of a Design Team. 
As this was my secret wish that one day I join Design Team, I'm super excited and grateful for this opportunity. 
So thank you from the heart, Milka. I truly admire crafts and cards of all these girls. 
I Love Math Challenge is such an exciting and funny challenge that it wouldn’t be right to say no. 
Eventhough I’m not a Math person, at all. I’m still using my fingers and my phone for simple operation. 
I know this is kind of awkward but that’s me. :) So don't be scared and eventhough you don't like Math, you can still try and join us at challenge. :) '

And here is Valentina's take on the challenge.

ADORABLE!!! Wonderful CAS design, layout, super cute images... and a lot of rectangles. ♥ I love Valentina's take on this challenge and how she used Polaroid frames as geometric shapes. LOVE!!! ♥ Jump over to Valentina's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

Here is Kaja's take on the challenge.

Super cuteness overload!!! AMAZING design, layout, color scheme, super cute shark, everything beautifully colored... and oh WoW triangles!!! ♥ I love Kaja's take on the challenge, her card and how she incorporated triangles into her scene. LOVE it!!  Jump over to Kaja's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

Here is Neha's take on the challenge.

GORGEOUS!!! Beautiful design, layout, modern look, colors... and oh that alcohol inked circles. ♥ I love Neha's card and how she used only circles on her card, even the sentiment. LOVE it!!!  Jump over to Neha's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

And here is my take on the challenge: Geometric Grid Birthday Card.

I made this card for my brother Goran who's birthday is this Saturday. :o)

How I made this card...

I die cut three CIRCLES on a white cardstock paper panel and stamped 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamp from Lawn Fawn which I received as a birthday gift last year from Lawn Fawn. :o)

As I was working, I placed the panel on my Xcut self healing mat. I liked a grid in the background, so I decided to the grid for my card. As I didn't have any grid paper in my stash, except white one (and that one I didn't like), I copied the Xcut mat on a white cardstock paper using my printer/copy/scan device and got myself a patterned paper I wanted. :o)

I cut a wide stripe from the grid patterned paper, glued it on a white top folded card base, glued the panel on the card base and my card was finished. :o)

Super simple, great design for masculine cards, various geometrical shapes... I really like how my card turned out.   :o)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 140 mm  (3 3/4" x 5 1/2")

List of supplies:
