Hi everyone, today I have these pretty Birthday Cards using the Herringbone Technique.
This technique is very easy and a great way to use up some of your scraps.
I used the First Edition “Mariposa” papers available from Amazon.
You can use any papers, prints and colours with this technique. I like to use the same collections but clashing different designs can look good too.
I used my current favourite Dovecraft Holographic mirrored card as my mat.
Available from Amazon.
You can see the fun rainbow effect the card stock gives you when it catches the light below.
To make these cards you will need…
1 blank card base, I used 5″ x 7″.
1 piece of 4.3/4 x 6.3/4 mirrored card stock for my mat.
1 piece of 4.1/2 x 6.1/2 cardstock to stick your design on.
I use the Stix 2 double-sided A4 adhesive sheets available from Amazon.
The Raffia ribbon is from The Range UK.
My favourite butterfly embellishments are available from Amazon.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
This is an easy way to quickly build up your card stash and create beautiful cards.
Thank you, as always for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend.
