Less is More with chevrons...


I made it...with just a half a day to spare to enter this week's Less is More challenge  'Take Three Challenges'.  Choose any three of the past Less is More challenges and combine the critieria from them on your card.  I've gone for...
  • Masculine
  • A Splash of Red
  • Don't Scrap It
Chevrons seem to be one of the latest trends and there's lots of different turorials out there to make them, some a lot easier than others.  Here's the simple method I used to make this card. 
First, I printed the sentiment at the foot of an A4 sheet of 300gsm card.  Cut at 21cm from the bottom edge and scored at 10.5 cm to make a DL card.


Trimmed 1cm strips of patterned paper, then cut the strips down to 4cm sections.


To make each chevron I laid two rectangles on top of each other to form a right angle and cut from the bottom to the top corner.  Then arranged them on the card front, that was the hardest part!
