Neon Chevron Card {Lil' Inker Designs}


Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs January 2015 release!  (If you're just starting here, head to the Lil' Inker blog to start the hop!)  

Part of the fun of having new product to use, is combining it with current products - it brings new life and fresh excitement to the great crafty stash you already have. In today's case, I pulled out my much loved Thanks Word Die (seriously . . .at $5.95, you NEED this in your stash. I use it CONSTANTLY.) I used it with the brand new Cover Up Die: Center Point Chevron. I might be seriously obsessed with this die. To create today's cards, I just die cut a bunch of pieces, and then created a few coordinating cards with them. 
On this first card, I die cut the chevron Cover Up die from neon pink cardstock. I adhered it to a white piece of cardstock, and then matted the whole thing on black. Then, I simply added my die cut sentiment. (Note, that this die is the full "normal" card size of 4.25x5.5, so adding the black matting made my card slightly larger. I'll have to use a slightly larger envelope to mail this card.) 

On the next card, I die cut the Cover Up die from black cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. Then I added some of the negative pieces cut from my pink card.  I also used the Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectanglesdie cut from vellum. I attached it with staples on either side, and adhered the sentiment, which was cut from silver cardstock.
