Herringbone- All White

I have been playing with the Herringbone technique we did this month in club and I thought I would share with you over the next few days some of the results. Here is an all Whisper White Card.

This card was so pretty in real life (it was sold with in 30 minutes of completing.

  •  The card base is Whisper White with a front of Textured Whisper White CS.
  • I ran Whisper White CS through the Big Shot with different Embossing Folders and with Texturz™ Plates. I then cut them into strips 1/8" to 3/8" wide.
  •  The herringbone design was done by cutting a piece of Whisper White CS 3 3/4" x 5" and layering it with a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet cut the same size. I then filled the design in with the strips I had cut. I then popped it up with Dimensionals on the card front.
  • The Basic Black CS was sprayed with Champagne Shimmer Paint Spray and cut with the Label Framelit.
  • Best Wishes is from Petite Pairs and it was inked with Versamark stamped onto Whisper White CS and embossed with Black Embossing powder that had BlackFine Galaxy Glitter mixed in. When Embossed the word were sparkly black. I punched the words out with the Small Oval punch and then added to the Basic Black piece then centered on the card.
I hope that you like this card, herringbone is a fun design and a great way to use up scraps of DSP or even CS.


  1. Kath thanks for sharing this technique. I have the sticky strip papers but haven't tried them yet so this would be a good way to start. Also great for a class session. Your card is really lovely.

  2. oooh! I cannot wait to try that technique! Thanks for sharing your lovely card!
