Fun Card using Folded Chevron Borders

Chevron patterns are all the rage right now.  You can find chevron paper, ribbon, embellishments and more.  I must admit... I was slow to jump on the chevron bandwagon.  Not that I didn't like it, but I didn't go crazy over it either.  At least not until I watched a video on making your own folded chevron borders.  Then I was hooked.  More on that in a minute.  For is a fun card I made using the folded chevron technique.
Of course this card is for Kara.  I am sending her a goody box and wanted a fun card to go with it.  I miss her so much! :)

Here is a picture of the borders waiting to be embellished and added to a card, scrapbook page or craft project.
You can get all the details on making these fun borders HERE.  Julia's technique is absolutely brilliant!  Yet it is very easy to do.  Her video shows the wider chevron.  I did adjust the measurements to achieve a narrower chevron for my card.  I will post my measurements below, but you will have to watch her video to find out how to do it. :)
  To achieve the narrow border I used a 1"x12" strip of paper and made my cut lines every 1/2".  Then I cut the chevron to fit the width of my card.   

Thanks for looking!
