I was reading a discussion from demonstrators about whether they use the Chevron Embossing Folder or Background Stamp more. I definitely use the embossing folder more, so I decided to dust off the stamp and use it on my card today. I think it's a great masculine stamp!
I used my Stampin' Write markers to color in the chevrons and stamped it on my banner. It has almost a rustic look the way the ink transferred, so I decided to sponge Crumb Cake around the edges of all of the elements on my card to mimic that look. The Squares Collection Framelits (that I got during one of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous sales!) make a perfect mat for the Window Frames Collection Framelits. I textured the Basic Gray square with the paper-piercing tool and used the backside of it so it was bumpy on the front. I love this look!
