Sketch Saturday DT card and mini tutorial!

Good morning Sketch Saturday fans! 
We have a new sketch for you today, and I have a little, quick tutorial too!

So first the sketch...
Isn't it great?

So here is what I made...


I used the HipHip Hooray card kit for my card and believe me when I say it took me all of about 3 minutes! And that includes the chevrons!

The brilliant thing about this kit is that you are given everything you need to make 24 cards! That's stamps, ink, a clear block (yes really!), embellishments, baker's twine, stickers, card blanks and envelopes! The only extra bit I added were the punched chevron bits. Now I don't have the clever chevron border punch (yet!) but I did figure out a way to make them using the Hexagon punch!

First, measure a piece of card 3cm wide, then measure the middle point and faintly draw a line, as below... (it doesn't really matter how long the card is)

Next, line up one of the points of your hexagon punch with the middle line and punch. Repeat for as many chevrons as you need.

And voila! Quick and easy chevrons!

Neat trick isn't it? Hope you find it useful!

I have a busy day today helping out at the school summer fayre, then visiting my friend's summer fayre, then some quality time with Keiran...can't wait!
Have a terrific Saturday, and don't forget to link up your card to the challenge!

  6. A great CAS card Lizy and a fabulous way to make those chevrons. I couldn't do them however I tried to cut them, which is why I gave up and just did triangles in the end!
