Happy Birthday with Chevron Sunday stamping Technique

Happy Sunday night stamping friends. I have had a frustrating day still trying to figure out how to do my newsletter. Oh dear Lord I pray, please make me a technical genius! Then trying to upload the retiring list on here and oh nothing was working right for me today. I tell you, I even cried because I was so frustrated. Stressful day so I started looking at blogs and then went to eat and read my Paper Crafts magazine and saw all these Chevron ideas which is just the rage these days and every time I turn around I see them. So I thought I would make a Chevron card for you and I thought it turned out so cute that I had to show you tonight instead of waiting for it next weekend. LOL!  I picked up a pack of some DSP and started looking through it and this is the card I came up with. It was so flipping easy I couldn't believe it.

 Now, it might be harder with card stock but here is what I did. I started out with a 6x6 inch piece of designer series paper and folded it in half and then kept folding it in half over and over till I couldn't fold it again. Then you take your scissors and cutting at an angle, cut through the folded paper in strips the same width all the way through till you are to the end. Then unfold the strips and bam you have a chevron design. I then glued the strips down with my Two Way Glue Stick. The strips went off the edge of my card stock. I put mine through the framelits die but if you were leaving it straight you could cut them off or wrap them around the edge to secure. You can also put your strips closer together if you like. It is really pretty easy to do and the ideas are endless. If you have any questions just email me and I can help you better maybe if I can walk you through it again. I have a stamping friend that has a birthday the end of the month and I just wanted to WOW her a bit.  Do you like this technique and how my card turned out? I sure do. 

Here are the details:
Stamp Set: Perfectly Penned
Card Stock: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pocket Full of Posies DSP
Inks: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Framelits Labels Dies, Sponge, Two Way Glue Stick.

That is my treats for you today and I sure hope you had a lovely day and created something cute yourself. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed evening. I love your comments.
Hugs, Bev


  1. Bev, this is so cool. I saw another card using chevrons similar to this, but she scored cardstock at perpendicular angles and then cut the diamonds out. I almost did that for my ColourQ card this week but was too lazy! I love the colors you've used here and how you cut your panel with the framelit! Now you have inspired me to give it a shot! Thanks for stopping by my blog, too! ♥

  2. This is beautiful Bev! I love the sponging on the embossed frame. Great job on the Chevrons! I'll have to try your technique. Thanks for the details!!!


Bless you for leaving me a comment. You bring me many smiles.
