*** Edited to add that I am submitting this card in the the Runway Inspired Challenge – RIC#45 – Tanya Taylor, thanks to huge encouragement from fellow bloggers Kimberley and Jacquie ***
Hello, and welcome to another theme for this week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
Our sponsor is Ellen Hutson and you’ve got a week to join in and play along with all the sequin and chevron inspired fun!
More details for the challenge can be found here. Here’s my card:
I wanted to try a die-cutting technique that I’d used for this card, but this time with square dies. Once again, I grabbed different coloured cardstock, laid out all my dies so they were nesting within one another and stuck a bit of washitape on the back of them to secure. I die-cut the cardstock with my dies in this formation, and got loads of frames:
I had already sketched out a layout for my card where I would have to chop out a huge triangle piece from the middle. I kept the bottom triangle to one side while I worked on the chevrons. These were basically the corners from the square frames spaced apart equally, and foam mounted to a piece of metallic blue cardstock.
I adhered the chevron panel behind the top triangle flap of my card base, and before I adhered the bottom triangle piece, I stamped a sentiment from the Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler set.
Finally, I added some co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled (lurrrve these!).
Be sure to check out the projects from the other DT members – hope you can play along too!
Thanks for looking!
