Herringbone



Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Amber Hillman, brings us her final challenge.

This week Amber has given us a Technique challenge - Herringbone. A fun technique using up scraps of paper. Directions can be found over on Splitcoast Stampers.





For my card this week I decided to play with the Katie Label Pivot card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I created my herringbone pieces on two panels and then cut them up so that I could adhere them to the sides of my card.

To decorate my card I used a Prima Doll.




Here is the inside of my card, I have added more herringbone panels to each edge and also another Prima Doll on the right hand side and a gift on the other side. I also added some birthday candles underneath the pivot area.





And finally the back of my card ... plain compared to the rest of my card, but still prettier than the back of a plain flat card :).
