Every Wednesday I check out Splitcoaststampers for the weekly tutorial. One week, they showcased the Herringbone tutorial. This is a great way to use up scraps of patterned paper or to use up old stock. I decided to grab scraps of old patterned paper. When this patterned paper came out (from Stampin' Up) I fell in love with it. Well its been retired for a few years now and I have a lot of it.
Since its February, I was inspired to make a romantic card, but I didn't want it to be a Valentine's Card. The colour combination is Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy, Baha Breeze, and Very Vanilla. I decided to use the Love Birds from the Olive You stamp set from Stampin' Up!. The birds are so sweet. I used Nestabilites Label 18 to cut out the image. I then sponged the edges. I wrapped some Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon around the herringbone base and tied a knot, then placed the love birds on top. To finish it off, I added some Dazzling Details to the stamped image. Its a perfect card for an anniversary or wedding.
