Chevron Rainbow

Today's Technique Challenge at SCS was to make chevron strips.  It's pretty simple -- you just score a 1-inch strip into 1/2-inch squares and cut at 90-degree angles to make the chevron.  Here's the card I made using the technique.  I used Retro Sketch #61 as the layout, and the current Be Inspired Challenge (#27) photo at The Alley Way Stamps as my inspiration.

Since I had a little left over from the various chevron strips, I used them to decorate the inside as well. I'm trying to do more to make the inside of my cards interesting.

  3. Beautifully done! I cannot believe you made those chevrons - they have to be perfectly cut to fit together so well! Thanks for joining us at The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired Challenge.
