CASology : Chevron

Hi there!

CASology Time!

                                                             

I used chevrons to create a background for a sentiment only card:


Chevron background birthday card

I created the BG in the Silhouette studio.

I used a solid line chevron shape as a starting point. Instead of cutting straight lines, I used the rhinestone setting which transforms straight lines to dotted lines for the use with rhinestones. A function of the Designer edition of the studio I love to use, not necessarily for rhinestones!

I added color behind the top panel to create a ombre effect, and added a Silhouette cut sentiment (design ID  #46981) and completed the sentiment with a computer generated sentiment.

My teammates are ready to inspire you:

So clever - I don't have the design studio, only the normal studio.

Bold, graphic and fabulous, Hannelie!

Alweer 'n wonderlike kreatiewe skepping van jou, vrou!!!!! Lyk vir my of dit 'n ingewikklede storie moes gewees het om uit te werk, maar dit is beslis oor en oor die tyd en moeite wat daarin gegaan het, werd!!!! Pragtig so met die ombre effek en ek's mal oor hoe jy die sentiment gedoen het!!!! 'n Lieflike skepping, vrou!!!
Groete en geniet die Woensdag!!!!

I love that big 'hey', Hannelie. And the chevron is wonderful. I'd love a die like that.

This is stunning, Hannelie! Ombre behind chevron looks awesome.

Gorgeous ombré, Hannelie ... those dotty chevrons are fabulous ... I was wondering if it was a die (which I was going to add to my wish list!) ... then I read on and found it was one of your silhouette masterpieces! Deliciously graphic! Hugs, Anita :)
