I finally got an opportunity to try this intriguing herringbone technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and I was inspired by the quilt Kristina Werner mentioned in her latest color inspiration challenge (#57). So I used her colors, most of which were present in SU!’s retired Walk in the Park DSP: deep red, coral, baja blue, mustard, saffron, and white.
I cut the strips of designer paper 3/8″ wide and glued them to a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White card stock. I matted the herringbone pattern with More Mustard onto a Riding Hood Red card. The birthday sentiment was stamped with More Mustard ink and punched out, then stamped again with Riding Hood Red ink so that I could add a popped-up, red ‘happy birthday’ to the tag. I punched a hole in the tag and ran a piece of grosgrain ribbon through it, then attached the tag to the card. The finishing touch was a small piece of ribbon with pointy ends that I attached behind the tag with mini glue dots.
Thanks for stopping by!
