Stippled Blossoms Chevron Braid

I saw this braid made from the Chevron Border Punch on a card posted on Stampin' Connection, the demo only website, by demo Mary Cavalier.  I thought this might be a great card for my November card classes.  But even though it's not terribly difficult it does take some trimming and fussing to get it just right.  Not a bad card for one person to make but I wasn't up for having 14 people making it in one morning!  So here's my card for all of you to view and perhaps make yourself. 

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamp Sets:  Stippled Blossoms, Blessings from Heaven
Card Stock:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz
Tools:  Chevron Border Punch

Quick instructions for the braid.  Punch the front Very Vanilla piece along one edge using the Chevron Border Punch.  Then punch a strip of Island Indigo with the punch.  Slide the two together to make the braid. 

This card is being mailed to a very special friend that has been fighting to recover from a serious stroke 2-1/2 weeks ago.  Just want her to know that I pray for her every day.  Love you Nancy!

  1. Super beautiful, Carol. I can see having 14 make this would send one over the cliff.
