I put the chevron die from the Slim Card dies through the Big Boss with an assortment of colors, then chose what I liked best together. I really love yellow and grey together, and my objective was to create a masculine card. As a result there are no bows, sparkly bits, or other distractions – just the die and the sentiments. Well. And a teeny weeny bit of linen thread, because it’s basically rope, and rope is manly!
I made a second version so that I could go landscape, and I REALLY like the way this turned out! I turned the template upside down so that the chevrons were going the other way (although since I also turned the entire card on its side there’s less of an impact). I used a variety of simple circles and embossed a few of them with the Brick and Mortar and Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folders.
I also pulled out the Slim Sayings stamp set that is bundled with the Slim Card dies for the Happy Birthday sentiment. If you look very closely, you’ll see that it’s matted with a Stitched Rectangle. We don’t have one that fits exactly, but there’s a solution to that.
Choose a rectangle that’s the correct length and cut it out. Take it out of the Big Boss and mark the spot where you need to cut it in order to make it the right length. Now line up your rectangle die on the sides with the top of the die aligned with your mark. When you run it through the Big Boss, it will only cut that one line, and you’ll have a perfect, custom rectangle!
