Happy Monday to you all! I hope that everyone had a nice weekend. I started a swimming class with my 14 month old little girl this weekend, and it's so much fun watching her reaction to the swimming pool. She doesn't seem to have an opinion about the water yet, but she definitely enjoys the other kids in the pool and the toys! It was so much fun!
We have another fun Lawnscaping Challenge for you today - dots and stripes! You can use dots, or stripes, or dots and stripes! :)
I decided to use a little bit of both. I used some polka dot patterned paper and created a chevron striped card!
It took some time to line everything up, but once you make the first row it goes by a lot quicker. For this card I used Lawn Fawn's "Finley's ABCs" and "Small Stitched Square Dies," along with some "Let's Polka" patterned paper. I also used some patterned paper from Avery Elle. The sentiment is cut from black vinyl so it made a sticker and was really easy to attach to the card. I might use vinyl more often!
To create the chevron stripes, I used the smallest square die to cut a bunch of squares (I think about 5 of each), then cut the squares in half diagonally. Then, I arranged the triangles on the card base to make it look like chevron stripes. I left a little bit of white space around the triangles so that you can't tell if one of the rows is a little bit crooked. I really like how colorful and fun this turned out! :)
Well, thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the rest of the cards from the Lawnscaping Design Team! And don't forget to play along because the winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate from Ellen Hutson! :)
Thanks! I hope you have a great day! :)
