My card is very simple with an embossed hearts background and using a grouped image I had previously made in Craft Artist using "All Sewn Up" embellishments from the Studio 12 Picknix collection. However the only paper I had left was several squares and I didn't want to just matt and layer them so, I turned them in to chevrons instead! They are so easy to make and I think look so effective.
Cut the papers in to smaller squares - mine were 2cm x 2cm. Then cut in half diagonally ....
Now plan out your chevron design and where possible don't match the design up ...!
I put the black bands on to add another layer and not for any other reason. With hindsight, I should of stitched the chevrons in place to match the sentiment ....
I am also entering my card in to the following challenges:
Less is more - friends
Card Crafters Circle - layers
Daring Card Makers - embossibilities
Totally Papercrafts - embossing
Little Red Wagon - repeated shapes
Pile It On - have a heart
This is a great way to use up your paper scraps, although slightly time consuming but isn't it great to try something different every now and then? So what will you do with your scraps today?
