Make Your Own Chevrons

Hello, dear friends. Kren here again with a challenge to use chevrons on a card.  You may own a "rick rack" style die, but I do not.  Lucky for me, SpeedyTV has a tutorial on how to make your own chevrons which you can find in the tutorial section.  It was so easy and I will be making my own chevron embellishments from now on. 

Not a member of SpeedyTV?  It's free and easy to become part of the MFP family.

 I used Java Time to invite a friend to have coffee with this "tent topper" card.



I wanted a bright and cheery card so I thought the bold colors of the chevron and the circle for the image would make it "pop."  Hope you like the effect.


The inside has another chevron and a little space for my message.  

Hope you will join us at the MFP Stamp Shop blog challenge/SFF this week.

Very well done on the chevrons, Kren! I have to go look at the tutorial since I don't have a rick-rack die, either. :-D Thanks for tip.
