Neat & Tangled Wonky Chevron

Hello everyone.

Today is day 3 of the Neat & Tangled Release week for January and we are showcasing the NEW Wonky Chevron Cover plate die. This die is awesome. I know I say that a lot, but listen... you can not top the wonkiness of this die. This die cuts the perfect wonky chevron into whatever you want. To see more of what Neat & Tangled offers and to check out what the rest of the Design Team has done with this die (CLICK HERE!) and visit the Neat & Tangled online shop and blog.

So,  I actually have two cards for you, and each is slightly different using the NEW Wonky Chevron Cover plate die. First, I cut the die from several different cardstocks. Three different cardstocks to be exact. I used Papertrey Ink's Classic Kraft and Dark Indigo as well as Simon Says Stamp Fog. Doing this actually allows you to make three full backgrounds for three cards, but I only used two today. I arranged them each using a different pattern of those three shades of cardstock. I used a piece of copy paper to align and adhere them. I coated a piece of copy paper with tape runner adhesive a put them together like a puzzle, adding liquid adhesive in any spots that may have been too bare for the pieces to stick properly. After allowing some time for the liquid to dry, I had two complete and gorgeous backgrounds with a masculine flare.

For the first card, I cut the shadow die from the NEW Just Because coordinating die set to cut a Classic Kraft shadow. I cut it two times to give it some dimension by layering to the two pieces together. I used Tombow Mono liquid adhesive to do that. I then cut two of the "love you" word dies from the same Just Because die set from Dark Indigo cardstock and layered those together as well. I used the same liquid glue to place the word die onto its shadow and also onto the card base justified to the top center of my card front.

For the sub-sentiment, I stamped the "more than anything" from the Just Because stamp set in Distress Oxide Brushed Corduroy. I used my Fiskars wire guide paper trimmer to cut it down to size.

To finish off the first card, I cut the little wonky hearts from the Just Because die set in all three cardstocks and popped them up with Scotch 3M Foam tape and placed them onto the card.

To jazz up this design just a little for the second card, I decided to cut the shadow directly into the background. I gave the shadow dimension by layering it with four other shadows under it with Classic Kraft cardstock. I used Tombow Mono liquid adhesive to do that as well.

As for the word die, I layered the same Dark Indigo cardstock together to create the sentiment, but this time, I brushed some gold paint along the bottom of the words to increase it's visibility and to also make it shine.

The sub-sentiment and the hearts were done similarly to the first card only with a little gold shine added to the hearts and a bit of a different arrangement on the card front.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today. To check out more from Neat & Tangled you can (CLICK HERE!) to visit the online shop and the blog for even more inspiration. The NEW January release will be available Friday, January 11th at 8:00am EST.
