Chevron Technique with DSP

Hey there Bloggers! It's Hump Day! It has been so cold here in the last week and I am so happy that we are seeing just a little bit of relief. This winter seems to be have been dragging on forever and I know that everyone is experiencing severe weather for the last few months. What's been happening in your neck of the woods? I would love to know.

Today's post is a card that we made at my last Stamper's Club meeting. It is a Chevron Technique using DSP. Depending on the Designer Series Paper you use, you can get a different effect and a definitely a different look.  
Cut 5 pieces of DSP to  2" x 1".  Fold three of the strips by taking the right corner and folding it over to the left side forming a 45 degree angle. The other two strips will be folded in the opposite direction.  Turn the strip and repeat the same thing on the other end.  Make sure that you are just turning the strip and not flipping it over.  Both folds are on the same side.  Once all the strip corners have been folded take them and create your chevron on your card front. It is easy to see how it will look if you use Dotto repositionable tape, that way you can move them around as needed then once it is perfect then you can adhere permanently.
