Herringbone Paper Strip Pattern to Try

Since I've been so carried away with Christmas cards, here's another design for you!

The Christmas to Remember stamp set and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) make a beautiful card using 3/4" strips in a Herringbone pattern. I cased the layout from Teresa Leggo but used a different set of products.

The Herringbone Paper Strip Technique is a wonderful one to try when you have lots of strips hanging around your scrap bin. It is so easy to cut your strips in 3/4" widths. Length doesn't matter. You can decide where you want the starting diagonal strip to go and continue from there. 

On this card, my starting diagonal was at 1" on the left side of the Basic White piece you will build on, and 3-1/4" on the right side. Make small tick marks so you can cover them when you place the first strip. Glue down the strips in the herringbone pattern and trim the excess paper that hangs over the edge off with your paper snips. 

Add the ribbon and scotch tape on the backside. Adhere the strip layer to the Crumb Cake and Card base. Add the inner Basic White layer. Add a sponge dauber edge to the tag after stamping the greeting. Add some holly and berries (you will only need 3 of the 4 berries) stamped and die cut out. Finish with your pearl embellishment. Don't forget to do your envelope flap too!
