Addicted to Clean and Simple - Chevron Punch Art

I LOVE Clean and Simple - but just because something has less, doesn't mean its easier to make. A clean and simple card is challenging to execute as you need to retrain. I am very happy with my restraint in this card today. The Addicted to CAS Design team have come up with a great theme - Chevron.


Here is my CAS card with Chevron -


I used the Stampin' Up! Chevron Border punch in all different colours from the Brights collection and then glued them to the base of the card.


I then added the two layers on top so that the chevron layer is highlighted by the two raised pieces of cardstock as if framing it. I love this look and have wanted to try it for a while. I then added the sentiment using the Greetings Thinlits.


Lots of bright, happy colours in this card!


Supplies Used:

  1. Kylie, the bright chevrons are terrific...but what I liked best was the way you raised the cardstock on each side of them! Great dimension! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

  6. So does the card open to write inside or do you write on the back side?

    1. Its a regular card Shella - have a look at the first photo closely and you might be able to see it - it just has a layer added at the front. Hope that helps?
