I couldn't resist the cute little Pure Innocence Scientist. Isn't she adorable? I think the Chevron Stripes are PERFECT for this little cutie. They look very "scientific". LOL I kept the focus on the cute image and Chevron Stripes Die-namics, which left little room for anything else. So I went with it. Science Labs are crisp, clean, and sterile, right? Much like this card... LOL
I did something REALLY weird when I made this card... I used Prismacolor pencils. LOL I wanted a softer look and colored pencils are just what the
I've this pack of 4 test tubes with cork stoppers for years. I bought them in Target dollar spot and they contained gel pens, which I gave to my daughters. I created this box from scratch using the diameter of the test tubes, a ruler, paper, and pencil. I felt so... scientific. LOL
This super cute sentiment comes in the FREE mini sentiment set in the VIP collection. ADORABLE. I stamped it on the Mini Bracket Tab.
It always feels kinda wrong for me to chop apart these cute little PIs, but in this case, I HAD to. :) I wanted to jazz up the test tube holder box! She is colored with Prismacolor pencils also. I used the Chevron Stripes to create a fun background on the front of the box as well.
I decorated the tops of the test tubes also.
Here is a peek at how I created the Chevron Stripes Background.
1.) Cut a ton of Chevron Stripes. Let me fill you in on a fun tip - If you keep your Chevron Stripes connected, when you die-cut them, you will get a third Chevron in the center of the 2 die-cuts. You'll save a little bit of time cutting. Score. I cut a piece of paper wider than I needed it, but exactly as tall as I wanted it.
Add some adhesive to the stripes themselves OR a strip down each side (which you can cut off later).
Lay out your Chevron Stripes as you wish. Remember, you can use the background card stock as an additional stripe color.
Here it is all laid out and ready to trim.
This is the finished background piece, which I also machine stitched.
