“Where oh where can I find a chevron pattern?” That was my question for today’s project.

Chevron Dashing Deer

 

My inspiration for this search was created by CAS(E) this sketch. See what I mean?

 

I’m still making Christmas cards, so I looked through my holiday Designer Series Paper for a chevron pattern, and landed on Dashing Along DSP. The Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green stripe would be perfect!

I cut two strips, 4″ X 2″, making sure they would line up in the middle. Then, I snipped (by hand) the two ends, to mimic the sketch.

For the background, I used matching, Garden Green cardstock, and embossed it with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. I didn’t want to go too crazy with pattern, and this was just enough “subtle” texture.

I glued these layers on a Cherry Cobbler cardbase, the other color in my chevron pattern.

 

Since the Dashing Along DSP coordinates with the Dashing Along Bundle, completing my card with a deer was an easy decision. I used a Detailed Deer die to cut the deer from Sparkle Glimmer Paper, and another die in the set for his Cherry Cobbler collar.

For the sentiment, I used my “go to” “Merry Christmas” from the Star of Light stamp set. I stamped it in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock, and used my favorite Bunch of Banners die for cutting. The surrounding piece is in the Sparkle Glimmer Paper to match the deer.

I’m so happy that this photo actually shows some shine.¬†

 

If you have the ingredients, this would be an fairly simple card to duplicate. You can see my Product List below.
