This birthday card is simple, but it includes some great trendy elements: ombre color and a chevron pattern. Ombre style is all the rage in hair color, but what about incorporating it into your card making? And ombre has French origins which makes it super chic.
I’ve created a video to show you how I made this ombre, chevron birthday card. You can view the supply list and video below.
This card is not about perfection, it’s about highlighting the chevron pattern with a trendy technique and creating a fun card to celebrate a birthday. Don’t get hung up on perfection because you will likely get a little ink where you didn’t want it, but it’s all part of the effect.
I chose Regal Rose for this card because this color is being discontinued and it is one of my favorites. But the good news is Island Indigo will continue in the new collection instead of retiring this year and Rose Red will continue in the Stampin’ Up! regal collection line up. Check out more information about the color changes and be sure to order your favorites now as they will no longer be available as supplies are depleted.Here’s the card recipe: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up!
