Chevrons & Cathedral Windows
I've noticed that chevrons are a big trend at the moment and I'd seen Jennifer McGuire using Hero Arts chevron stripe stamp to make really attractive cards. So I bought the stamp and played about with it to make a Thank you card. I stamped it on different coloured card and thought I'd make a set of cards but once I started cutting apart the chevrons and rematching them to get different colour combinations I ended up with 20 Thank You cards - enough to last me quite a while I think! Here are the photos en masse but it doesn't actually show all the colours as there are green combos in the mix as well.
Recently I saw Rosemary Merry on Create & Craft demonstrate how to make a Cathedral window patchwork card so as I love the patchwork look I had to have a go before I forgot how she did it.
