I recently got the Chevron Border Punch from the Holiday Catalogue. I was playing around with it to create some Christmas cards.
This card was CASED from Barb Mullikin I think?? I have used the ‘Season of Style’ Designer Series Paper. I punched some Chevrons at the bottom of the paper and backed it with some Cherry Cobbler card. I coloured the gifts from the set ‘Wishing You’. I used Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green Markers. I then cut them out and lifted them up using Dimensionals. I added a little Rhinestone to the centre of the middle gift although it is a hard to see that. The greeting from that set was inked with Cherry Cobbler ink and was cut out using the Labels Framelits. Some Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon helped break up the busy paper.
The next card is using the Chevron Border Punch a little different. I added 3 of the punch outs in a line pointing downwards, actually towards the greeting which just highlighted the greeting!
This Santa is from the stamp set ‘Santa’s List’. I don’t have this set but I used it at Leonie N’s at our last stamp day a few weeks ago. It’s good to get together and share stamps – and ideas 🙂 You can’t see here but I added some Dazzling Diamonds with the 2-Way Glue Pen to the white trim on Santa’s coat and hat and on his beard. It is hard to see it though. If you click on the photo to see a larger view you might just be able to see it sparkle!
I have used a different pattern of the ‘Season of Style’ Designer Series Paper and added some Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon to finish it off.
I have seen some more great ways to use this punch on my blog travels so I look forward to playing around with this punch some more . So stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by,

Hey! A couple of great cards there! I don’t have this punch, but love these trendy chevrons!
Not seen chevrons on Christmas cards before but they look fab!
