A white-on-white chevron Some Odd Girl card took over my brain a few days ago…here she is!

These chevrons are different because they are folded so there are no rough edges and they create dimension.

Details:

  1. Card Base:  Heavy duty white card stock, A2, opens from the top, bottom corners chomped.  Colored with Distress Inks – Lavender.
  2. First Layer:  Same white card stock, edged with DI – Concord, then embossed with clear powder.
  3. Chevrons:  See below for tutorial.  These were glued on the inside to ensure they stayed together.  I also squashed them in a book for an hour or so to help them flatten out.  They are attached to the First Layer with tape.  Any slight overhang was trimmed.
  4. Butterfly:  Silhouette file, cut from the same card stock, Inkadinkadoo dragonfly stamp inked with DI – Concord.
  5. Image:  Spunky Sprite from Some Odd Girl, colored with Copics.

Copics:

  1. Wings:  V0000, V000, 1, 12
  2. Skin:  E0000, 000, 00, 21, 11; R11
  3. Dress/Flower:  YG00, 03, 06
  4. Belt/Headband:  V5, 9
  5. Hair:  B00, 2, 5, 18
  6. Eyes:  BV1, 13, 25
  7. Edge: W8

Folded Chevron Tutorial

Chevron Tutorial:

  1. Cut paper to the length desired.
  2. Draw a line down the center, lengthwise.  Left most strip.
  3. Determine the size of the chevrons.  The length of the piece should be divided equally.  For instance, this piece is 4 inch with 1 inch chevrons.  One on side I started marking 1 inch from the edge.  The lines on the other side should be offset by 1/2 the chevron.  These lines should only go to the lengthwise center line created in step 2 above.  This chevron is 1 inch, so put the first line at 1.2 inch and then measure and draw lines every inch thereafter.  This is more complicate to write out than to do!  Promise.  Center Strip.
  4. Start folding!  I like to start on the side where I measured from the edge.  You just fold each corner down to create a point in the middle.  I do one side and then move to the other side.  Right most strip.
  5. Depending on the result you want you can use a bone folder, weigh it down, or use other methods to help flatten the chevron.
