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.
- Card Base: Heavy duty white card stock, A2, opens from the top, bottom corners chomped. Colored with Distress Inks – Lavender.
- First Layer: Same white card stock, edged with DI – Concord, then embossed with clear powder.
- 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.
- Butterfly: Silhouette file, cut from the same card stock, Inkadinkadoo dragonfly stamp inked with DI – Concord.
- Image: Spunky Sprite from Some Odd Girl, colored with Copics.
- Wings: V0000, V000, 1, 12
- Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 21, 11; R11
- Dress/Flower: YG00, 03, 06
- Belt/Headband: V5, 9
- Hair: B00, 2, 5, 18
- Eyes: BV1, 13, 25
- Edge: W8
- Cut paper to the length desired.
- Draw a line down the center, lengthwise. Left most strip.
- 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.
- 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.
- Depending on the result you want you can use a bone folder, weigh it down, or use other methods to help flatten the chevron.
