JAI 291 - Just Add C - masculine birthday card

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink & this week we're adding "C". Fun! I could have chosen Christmas or colouring, calypso coral, carrots (?) or.... but I think you'll see I decided to go with a masculine card using...
Yes, chevrons!
I made this card for my darling man's birthday. It was very quick to design & finish - nothing like a impending deadline to fend off procrastination. Thankfully Damo liked what I'd done, which made me very happy. It's also very supply friendly - just paper, card & one ink pad.

How did I make it?
I started with 2 fun matchy-matchy paper prints from the Go Wild paper stack.
Then I added a chevron-y vellum banner with stamped sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

Wondering how I made the chevron banner? -it was so easy to do with my punch best friend, the triple banner punch. The black pieces are the leftover ends made when you punch a 2 inch wide strip. For the smaller banner ends, I punched a banner end, then pushed the remaining card piece in a little & re-punched. You can punch the pieces at any length you like to make your own pattern. Fun!

Well that's all for me today. I've lots to finish before my last 2 classes of the year later today & Saturday so I'd best finish here  Do check out all the team's fab C cards & we'd love you to add your own C project too. Thanks for visiting today, pin & comment away if you have any q's or you liked my card too.

Inky wishes, Di
