Today's Technique challenge is to make your own chevrons. I should have listened to myself and layered the two strips together for the cutting step as they're just different enough to not line up 100% correctly. I left a gap between them to try to help. I also ran them back through my Big Shot between blank plates with a paper shim to iron out the score lines-I still wound up with a faint line and then some squiggles from my scarred up pads so I decided to accent it a bit with craft ink. My sentiments were inked with Versamark then Island Indigo and embossed in clear. I cut my "dad" and popped it over an embossed ticket. I added a clip and ribbon in the corner and ticket punched the other corners. I never can seem to get those clips on without bending up my paper! Any hints?

What a fantastic card for dad! Love your colors and the way you did the corners.
