Herringbone background design

Hello everyone,

Today over on the Main Blog I have shown this beautiful Butterfly card made using the Herringbone pattern technique for the background papers. I thought I'd pop it on here with the instructions

    Trim a piece of card to 10 cm x 25cm, score in half to make a card blank
    Trim a piece of plain pink card to 9.5cm x 12cm and add to card front using foam pads
    Trim a piece of white card to 9cm x 11.5cm
    Cut various strips of paper to 1.5cm wide
    Add 3 strips of paper to the card panel as shown in diagram, creating 4 triangle areas on the card
    Use the remaining paper to fill in each area - (leaving a small gap between each piece is optional)
    Trim off any overhang and add the panel to the card front
    Stamp the 'Happy Birthday senitment onto white card, carefully trim around the border and add to the bottom RH side of the card using foam pads
    Stamp the butterflies onto card, carefully cut out and add to the card with foam pads
    Finish off with a few randonly placed gems

    Thanks for popping by today
    Lyndsey xx
