Herringbone Technique Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card we created during our latest Online Team Meeting! This card uses the ‘Herringbone’ technique and is great for using up your patterned paper scraps!

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Calypso Coral cardstock. I have then cut a 9.5 x 13.9 cm Whisper White layer to apply the Designer Series Paper (DSP) to. I have chosen to use the Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad DSP which is one of my favourites from the current Annual Catalogue.

The DSP is cut into 1.2cm wide strips and adhered to the Whisper White layer to form the card front. This is then adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Share Sunshine Digital Stamp Set which you can find here, and is cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. The 2.25″ Circle Punch is used to cut out a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. These are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This is a great technique which allows you to use up DSP scraps as well as showing off a number of different DSP sheets on one card. Of course, if all the sheets are from the same DSP pack, you just know they will coordinate perfectly! Simply choose one of the coordinating colours for your card base and you are guaranteed a fabulous card.
