I have a special fondness for chevrons so I decided to make a stencil on my Silhouette. I used a plastic notebook divider and put the settings on Silhouette stencil material. I sponged on Distress Ink in purple and blue and when dry I chalked the design with lavender chalk to soften the image. I positioned the image in an angle across a piece of cardstock, marked the angle, removed the chevron and cut the cardstock along the angle.
Since the insert was on an angle it proved to be a little tricky. I started the card process by cutting the original cardstock in half at 5.5 and scored and folded the card base from one of the halves. The remaining piece I cut in half so I would have two 5.5 x 4.25. One of the halves was the piece I cut the angle on. The image was attached to the card front after which I added fun foam to and then used double-sided tape to hold the two layers together. The last stop was to trim all the edges so that it was flush with the card measurements. What I was left with were the image on the bottom level and the white stock and fun foam raised above the image.
I decided it needed a splash of color so I cut a strip of light purple light weight paper. I scored the strip in half and glued it to the sides and top edges and trimmed.
I finished the card off by stenciling a couple chevrons on a separate piece of cardstock and added the phrase between the two. I used foam dots to raise the phrase just a little off the card. Hope I didn't confuse you too much! LOL
