I started with a kraft card base and layered a polka dotted patterned paper with dimensionals on top of it. Then, I layered a piece of vellum on top of that. I used the Frantic Stamper Ombre Card Panel Die to cut the chevrons out of 4 different pieces of patterned paper (I only used a small section of each paper and didn't cut out the full dies worth to save paper). I also cut one full piece of cardstock with the die and used it as my guide for where I would place the chevron pieces. When picking patterns to use together, I often find that if you use papers from the same paper pad, they will most likely work well together. The guess work has already been done for you!
I laid my full cardstock card panel die cut on top of the vellum but didn't adhere it because I would be removing it after all of the chevron pieces were adhered. This is the piece acting as a guide or stencil. I put adhesive on the back of the chevron piece and then placed each piece where I wanted it. When each chevron had been placed, I removed my guide and set it aside for a later project.
Next, I layered another piece of vellum over the bottom portion of the chevron card. I folded the vellum around to the backside of my card panel so that I wouldn't have to worry about the adhesive showing through. I die cut the "Congrats" from the Accolades die set in a coordinating piece of paper (I used the same pattern as the top 2 rows of chevron to tie it all together). I also die cut the congrats in 2 pieces of a coordinating cardstock and adhered them all together to add dimension and contrast. I love how you can see the coral peeking out from underneath the sentiment.
I die cut two butterflies from the Petite Butterflies die set, adhered them together and added a sequin in the middle and adhered it to my card.
I'm entering this card in the Color Throwdown Challenge #314.
