FOLDED CHEVRON CHRISTMAS CARD

Yesterday at the last meeting of 2013 of the Toti Creative Card Guild, I taught the members the folded chevron technique, and once the ladies had completed theirs, they each used it on a card.

I made a sample, a CAS Christmas card, so give them an idea on how the chevron embellishment could be used, but encouraged them to make something completely different.

An oh wow, some wonderful cards emerged, from Christmas cards, to birthday cards, even an amazing Valentine's card.

This is my sample:


This what the chevron-embellishment with a red cord and bow, and gold gems, looks like, close-up:



The chevron was pasted onto white CS, matted onto red CS, and added to a white CS base card onto which I had computer printed the sentiment.

I love the strong design on the card, and the fact that it took only 10 minutes to make is a bonus!
