Chevron Cards & Matching Gift Bag

On Friday I promised you I would show today the whole project that Fast Friday 10's card came from... Well firstly I didn't just make one card ... I made three!

And there's more ... they all fit inside a co-ordinating gift bag (yes I know I am very matchy, matchy!):

This project makes a great present for friends and/or family – I did something similar as stocking fillers at Christmas and they went down a storm. I did them in different colourways/combinations than the one here - and tried to choose (what I knew/thought) were the favourite colours of the recipient!

Top tip - to make sure you get an even and full impression when using a large background stamp, make sure you use a wood mounted version of the stamp and take the ink pad to the stamp and then place your folded card base on top of the stamp. Place a piece of scrap paper over the top and then using the brayer roll over the entire stamp - works every time!

In fact I have just returned from an A-MAZ-ING crafting weekend in Birmingham with some fellow demonstrators and I designed this version of the project for one of the Make & Take sessions. The whole weekend we crafted, we shared and we cared! And now we are ... exhausted!

If you like this project and place an order for £30 or more during April, I will give you a free copy of the tutorial with all the instructions you need.
