Amazing Life Chevron Fold Card

The Amazing LIfe stamp set is AH-MAZING!!

If you are finding yourself asking why it is amazing, let me share my top three reasons with you.

  1. I love the font
  2. I adore the images
  3. The sentiments are perfect for tons of occasions

Take a look, I know you are going to love this stamp set as much as I do!

Amazing Life Photopolymer Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! A cake for all the things worth celebrating. Beautifully designed and versatile sentiments perfect for many occasions.

Today, I want to share with you the Chevron Folding Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Chevron Fold” and lo and behold, I found lots of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  1. Super Easy
  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what everyone has created!

 

I created this card with St. Patrick’s Day in mind but the colors could easily be swapped out for any other occasion.

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment was heat embossed with Call Me Clover Embossing Powder (because I couldn’t find my Call Me Clover ink pad)
  • I used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for added interest, I love how it makes the Gold Foil Paper POP!
  • I added some extra sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen and Call Me Clover Ink.
  • and of course, the Chevron Fold
