Watercolor Chevron Thanks Card

Cheery Chevron Thanks Card | Stampingville #StampinUp #cardmaking #papercrafts

With watercoloring of all types appearing everywhere right now and chevrons still hot as ever, I've combined the two for this simple but trendy thank you card.

Fusion challenge card sketch
I'm also catching the tail end of the current Fusion challenge - the first time in a long while for playing along with a challenge. With such a great simple sketch to work with, I chose to combine the photo + the sketch for a true "fusion" card!

Last chance alert! Lots of the Stampin' Up! products used to create this card are retiring soon: the Oh, Hello stamp set, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper, Itty Bitty Punch Pack and Calypso Coral Baker's Twine. If any of these items are on your must have list, be sure to order them ASAP!

Squares Collection Framelit Dies by Stampin' Up!

Creating the square openings for my card was SO easy using the Squares Collection Framelit Dies. It almost feels like cheating, but really, that's the whole point of having useful papercrafting tools isn't it? I love a quick and easy shortcut!
