I don't think that this layout has a name but since it uses triangles and it makes 2 cards with 1 set of squares, I decided to name it the Triangle 2-for-1 card! It is really quick and easy to make and there are so many little variations you can do! This card uses Flowers for Every Season and Misty Moonlight ink and card stock. ( I was inspired by a card made by Lyssa Zwolanek.)

Here's what you need to get started:
Two 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card bases, scored at 4 1/4"
One 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square of pretty patterened paper (DSP)
One 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square of accent color cards stock
One 3" x 3" square of the same color card stock
Sentiment, bling, ribbon, dimensionals, inks and stamps. Optional, die cut for sentiment.
The first step is to cut each of your squares into 2 triangles as shown in the pictures below.
Next, adhere the patterned paper to the large triangle leaving a small border of card stock at the point and along two sides. (The patterned paper will hangover the straight side of the triangle.) Then adhere that triangle to the card base, carefully lining up the patterned paper with the fold. The tip of the triangle will hang over the card base at the top and the bottom. Just snip them off with your scissors. (The photos below show the back side of each step with the "overhang.")
Now, adhere the small triangle to the front as shown. Stamp a sentiment and, if desired, stamp a small pattern in the other "white space." Lastly, add a bow and bling!
This card used Snowflake Splendor papers, Pacific Point card stock, mint macaron ribbon while the background stamp and sentiment came from Forever Fern stamp set using Balmy Blue ink.
Here are a couple of others that I made during the Zoom class. If you'd like to see more, please join my Chat'n'Craft Creations page on FB!
I hope you will give this card a try! It is quick, easy and so versatile. I really think you'll love it.
