A Bright Chevron Card


I though since there was nothing on TV tonight I'd pop on and blog another card I made last weekend at my crop. This one is full of color! I was inspired by a store customer who was trying to figure out how to create a chevron pattern in a simple way. I've seen it done a number of ways and explained it to her but of course, showing someone is always easier then explaining... lol! So I made a card. Here it is:


Stamps: Friendly Phrases- Stampin' Up!
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine
Paper: Very Vanilla cardstock- Stampin' Up!; patterns by Echo Park and Cosmo Cricket
Accessories: black thread- DMC

I think I'll add this card to my April Card Class line up down at Scrapdoodles. It was fun to make and a great way to use those scraps!

Did everyone enjoy the first day of spring? I spent the day with my littlest Natalie and enjoyed a free ice from Rita's, riding bikes up and down our street, and having bologna sandwiches for lunch. It was fun! I would really like to catch the cherry blossoms up in DC this week but with school and babysitting responsibilities, I'm afraid I am going to miss the beautiful trees this year. Their peak went by so fast this year! Not that I'm complaining about the weather... I'm loving all the sun! I guess it's an OK trade off, as long as the sun keeps shining!

Alright! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Hope you have a great start to spring!

Great card! Can you give us a little tutorial about how you cut your paper? Did you just cut strips at a diagonal or just straight strips?
