Tips For Choosing Your Designer Papers

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is double sided and I highly recommend that your paper is double sided for this technique. Why? Because both sides of the paper will show. For this reason, you want to choose a paper with colors that compliment each other. This will also help you choose the colors for your card base and back layer.

Finish Off Your Chevron Paper Fold Card

Once you’ve added the chevron paper fold to your card you can add a popped up greeting to your card front, add ribbon, pearls, sequins, or any other embellishments you wish!

My cards are both going horizontal but did you know they can go vertical too? Get creative once you add your chevron pieces to your card.
