I wonder how many of us have made cards in the past year using the Herringbone technique? I first learned it from Dawn Olchefske at Leadership in January 2012 and have seen the technique used over and over again. My stampers made this card during Sale-A-Bration last year.
Something made me want to revisit the technique and see if I could use it on a heart. I love the way this turned out — although it looks like the heart is a window, I actually constructed the herringbone by adhering 1/2″ strips to a piece of Whisper White card stock, then cut out the heart with a Framelits. I couldn’t help running it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and giving the heart a bit of sanding to bring that out.
Not bad for my first attempt! Unless I come up with something else, this is “it” for DH.
