Paper, Scissors, Chevrons

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I've been working on a special tutorial for Splitcoast Stampers and it's finally LIVE.

The tutorial is for making chevrons using a paper trimmer, scoring tool (or trimmer with bone folder) and scissors.  A few months back I wanted to make a card with chevrons and I didn't have a die or embossing folderAfter a few hours and many failed attempts I figured out a way to use the tools I already had to create a chevron shapeYou can find my Splitcoast tutorial HERE - including a really cool video of me making the chevronsI was unable to get a hand double for this video - it's all me.

My chevron tutorial uses strips of paper that are 1 inch wide by 5 1/2 inches long.  For today's card, I took my original dimensions and reduced the width to 3/4 inch and the length to 4 1/4 inch.

FINALLY - here is the card I have to share today......

Supplies -
Stamps:  Hero Arts Everyday Sayings
Paper: Baja Breeze, Naturals White
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Blossom Party Die, Dazzling Diamonds
This week's challenge at Cas-ual Fridays is to make a card using Chevrons and Flowers so I'm also including this card in the challenge.  You can find the challenge HERE.
