Paper Smooches-Heartfelt Thanks DiesI used the new Heartfelt Thanks die on my card. For the background, I blended in some Simon Says Stamp ink ink and then adhered several chevron stripes using the new Borders 3 dies. Both of these new dies will be available on August 31st. To finish it off I added a bit of loosey goosey silver thread and some gorgeous rainstones.

  1. I loved chevrons before they became popular. I do needlework and they are a type of bargello so this would be a fun set to combine with the sewing set! Love the background colors you used too.

  2. WOW! Must have those dies! Chevron’s are so versatile. Super colors as always. Super card! I posted to Facebook!

  3. Your card is lovely 🙂
    I mentioned to Kim how I remember my mom always had packs of Rick Rack in with her sewing stuff. It was really popular in the 50’s-60’s, I think. I still have some of her Rick Rack and I love it!
    I guess Rick Rack was the original “Chevron”.

  4. Your cards always stand out from the rest! The gradient coloring on the sentiment and background is very well done. And of course the white rick rack all down the card is a winner.

  5. You always make such wonderfully creative cards!! This is absolutely beautiful with blended background and the chevron stripes.
