Celebrate Chevrons

What a fun card for Friday I have to share. It was from my last Card Buffet, I just forgot to show you.

It’s a great card for a boy or suitable to be a manly card! See for yourself –

Quite simple and quick.

Although, lining up the Chevron Punch and not punching too far was a bit tricky to explain in words. Of course, I had a template! You punch 3 times to get just the right amount. This was done on the bottom of the card. As well as the Whisper White panel for the middle. It was just rotated after punching to go in the opposite direction.

And, surprise – it’s a gift card holder as well! Nifty, nifty, right?

This gift card slot was made using the Word Window Punch. The card stock pushed all the way in and punched 3 times across to achieve the wide slot. I also flipped this piece to have the slot near the top. Sticky strip was placed on the sides and about an inch below where the gift card would slide in. This prevents it from going in too far.

So, what do you think? Pretty nifty, huh? And, now you know how to convert any card you’ve made into a quick ‘gift card’ holder!

Comments appreciated.

Happy Stampin’
