Chevrons!

 

Pin It
Today I am showing you something that I had a little hand in.....I was the "concept designer" behind the new Chevron Dienamics. I love the trendy chevrons and thought it would be SO nice to have a couple of dies that would fit together.

The beauty of these Die-namics is that I was able to cut through 2 sheets of cardstock at one time with my sad little cuttlebug. So I made one pass with 2 tones of pink cardstock and one pass with 2 tones of green cardstock. So fast and easy! I used a quickie glue pen to put them in place on my card front and then just clipped off the edges. I rounded the bottom corners as a last step. These make great mass production cards that you can have in your stash for many occasions!

The sentiments are showcasing 2 different sets due for release:
Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries
BIG greetings

I did use a couple of different Die-namics shapes for the sentiments, they are the "Polka Dot Greeting Die-namics" and the "Framed Greetings Die-namics".
