I am always intrigued with chevron stripes, but I am kind of stumped since I do not own pattern paper with chevron stripes. A couple months ago, I made this card for the Moxie Fab's Chevron Challenge, but I never did submit it. I used the stitching image from the stamp set (Sew Artsy ). That was my first attempt.
After coming across with this video by Julie Campbell over Two Peas in a Bucket , my light bulb finally went up! Unlike the video, I used strips of paper since I have abundant of them. I am still saving my precious washi tape. This is my card after trying out a few patterns of chevron.
As you can tell, the chevron strips are not perfectly even. BUT I really like how it turned out. the flower was embossed in white and then was distressed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I love the white sentiment from SRM Stickers that are perfect in coordinating with the embossed flower. I love to learn something new along the way....this is definitely one of them! Oh...and of course, this card was prompted by CREATE Blog and it is featured here.
Thanks for stopping by!
