Chevron Baby

Hi there!  I spent the end of last weekend down and out with this cough & cold bug that's going around and didn't get back into the Craft Cave until yesterday.  I finished that big 32 card order and am now working on a new order which I'll share later in the week.  Also I've been invited to take part in a Wine & Cheese event at the Mason's Lodge with a number of other craft vendors.  I did it last year and enjoyed it so I've got two weeks to really build up my stock for this year.

Today's card was inspired by the photo at Just Add Ink and I'm also going to enter it in the Anything Goes challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.  I used dies from My Favourite Things (chevrons) and Lil' Inker Designs (Baby) and a sentiment from Altenew.  It was pretty quick to put together so I made one for a girl as well.  Time to jet off back to work.  Have a great day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill,  (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Baby Zoo) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Chevrons) My Favourite Things, (Baby) Lil' Inker Designs, (Flag) Paper Smooches
Gems:  Recollections

As soon as I scrolled down this post and saw your photo, I knew you had joined us at Just Add Ink. This is absolutely brilliant and love how you used the chevron dies, they fit together perfectly!! And such a good idea to make it a baby card, the colours work so well for that. So happy to see you at Just Add Ink!!

Yep, a perfect way to make that photo inspiration into a card! Of course, giving the matching, hand-crocheted afghan _with_ the card would be ideal. No? :D

I love the effect of overlaying the words over that wonderfully bold chevron pattern Jen. It's a really striking special baby card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
