Ombre Chevron (Jen Carter)

Ombre Chevron
by Jen Carter

If you enjoy looking at Pinterest or in the things around you for inspiration I am sure you've noticed the ombre trend!  I really love the ombre look and Frantic Stamper has a very cool die that is perfect for this trend!  I have had so much fun playing with it and coming up with ideas and color schemes and patterns!

For this card I chose to work with pinks.  I die cut rustic cream cardstock with the Ombre Chevron Card Panel die.  I then used the same die to cut three different colors of pink cardstock using scrap pieces.  I used a large enough piece of scrap paper to cut four chevrons of each color.

Starting with the lightest pink at the bottom, I layered the chevrons into my rustic white piece.  I used scotch tape on the backside of the panel to keep the chevron pieces in place and this also helped stabilize it when I popped it up to attach to my card base.  I die cut the cutest Petite Butterflies (I LOVE how they layer!) in vellum and gold glitter cardstock and layered them on to a vellum banner.  I embossed the sentiment in black.

There are so many possibilities with this die! If you have a lot of scrap paper and wonder how to use it, this is a great die for that!  You can mix and match coordinating cardstock and paper patterns for a very fun background!  I hope you love it as much as I do!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you enjoy your day!
