Congratulations Chevron Style

Time for another challenge over at Watercooler Challenges. It was my turn to decide on a challenge, and I chose one which appears specific but is wide open: any kind of fancy-folded card; any kind of fold incorporated into a 3D project; any kind of fold -- Any Way! I hope you decide to go to the Watercooler Challenges blog and see what the other artists have created. Maybe, you might like to upload your fancy fold ?????

I was going to do a special fold within a card, until I happened upon a card by Deb Valder. She was kind enough to create a video on how to make a chevron folded pattern to place on a card. I think this is a fabulous way to use up scraps of designer series paper. Now all you stampers out there -- you can't tell me you don't have miles of scraps lying around, lol.

Anyway, here is the LINK to the video, if you don't see it embedded below:

... And here is the card I made and gave to a couple who just got married:

stamps: tin of cards (sentiment) * NEW *
paper: whisper white thick, crushed curry, whisper white, melon mambo, English garden d.s.p.
* NEW *
ink: mossy meadow
... and the butterfly thinlits

Hope your day is full of butteflies ... and ... chevron patterns!


  1. Bev what a wonderful choice of challenges for the Watercooler Challenge Blog this week. Awesome. I love the little fancy folds chart you used for inspiration and most of all I really like the card that you made. I've never seen this fold before and I found it very inspiring. Your card is stunning and I'm sure the newlyweds will love it.

  2. Ahh thanks Penny for the kind comments.
