OWH challenged us to use up our scraps to make backgrounds for cards. I've done this before and it was pretty easy. I use by Xyron to coat the entire card base in sticky stuff and then just place the strips in a pattern on the card. I learned this Herringbone technique from SplitCoast Stampers here: Herringbone tutorial. Here's the base layer with all of my paper strips:
Then I simply printed a digi sentiment and used my Spellbinders to cut out some layers. I read that my shipper needs Anniversary cards, so this is my first one!
This is really simple to put together and helps me use up all of my scraps! Now on to make a patriotic version!
