I'm the first stop on the hop today, so grab a treat and let's get to it!
This month's challenge is Chic Chevrons... you can use the inspiration pic or not, we just want to see get groovy and use this popular pattern somewhere on your creation.
My concept for the card was masculine and rustic. I stumbled across some book paper in my stash and just new I wanted to stamp the chevrons from Borderline across it, so I did. First the outline, then the solid in alternating colors (soft sky and lucky limeade). I also recently got a magnetic platform for my Big Shot and I love, love, love it! And boy did I have fun with the Banner Bundle Die Set. To make the banners, I layered two sets of nested dies together and ran them through the machine. The magnetic platform kept the dies from shifting and I was so excited to see little frames and inner pieces that I could stagger for a fishtail look. Squeal! A little picket fence distress stain pulls in the whitewashed wood grain feel from the photo.
The sentiment is from Purely Sentimental and I stamped it inside the chevron classy label from Unto Us, then layered onto a Classy Label die cut from crumb cake, then added some striped ribbon and sequin stars to finish things off.
