Brown and Orange Chevron Hello

Chevrons on a striped background.  Simple and strong shapes and colors.   The notched sentiment flag echoes the chevrons' angles.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink dark chocolate (brown), orange zest, vintage cream, and striped paper from the fine linen pattern pack.
  • The chevrons and the orange flag notch were cut with Papertrey Ink chevron stripes border dies.  The cream notch was cut with a square punch.  The chevron's angle is wider than the square punch, but on my narrow sentiment strip, it's not a problem. 
  • The sentiment "Hello" is computer-printed with brown ink using Wide Latin font.
