Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is for the Herringbone technique. It’s a great way to get rid of your small patterned paper strips. For my sample I used an the Itty Bitty Unity image called Roly Poly Winter Joy. I had it colored since the CHA Supershow. It had been stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (not sure about the colors, sorry). The image was cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die. It was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scalloped Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The edges of the image oval were paper pierced.
The Herringbone background was created with MME Lime & Twist Life of the Party patterned paper. It measured 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″. It was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers. A Basic Grey button was tied over the bow with Iridescent Curling Ribbon.
A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Accent die. It was adhered behind the image layers were before those were adhered to the Herringbone layers with dimensionals. The Lace Doily die cut was covered with Stardust Stickles. A sentiment from the Roly Holy set was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a piece of white cardstock cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. The inner part was airbrushed before the circle was adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut and embossed with a Scallop Circle die. The edges of the sentiment circle were paper pierced before it was adhered under the bow.
The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Core’dinations cardstock folded in half. The layers were adhered to the card base and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl finish off the card front.
