Double Herringbone Background Card




Hi bloggers!  This Herringbone frame is so much fun!  Just crisscross them to make a fab new pattern for your backgrounds.  It looks great in one colour or in two as well!














The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue.
Cleaver card, take away the flowers and it would make a great man's card.
Love the idea.

Morning Sue. I remember that sliding sample you showed earlier in the year and my eyes are still slightly out of focus lol. Probably because my eyes have only been awake for an hour I'm finding this sample hard to focus on but I know when I watch the tutorial everything will fall into place - brain and eyes will work together (hopefully ) lol. Absolutely brilliant for a male type card. Enjoy your day whatever your plans xxx

Hello Sue and all
Thank you for the video and the instructions for the triple layer dies. I really like the herringbone die, bought it after the release and haven't used it yet, must be remedied. It looks fabulous in one colour or mixed, great die. Beautiful card, the black, white and gold look fabulous together

Hi Sue. What a really unusual card which I don't think needs very much further embellishment. Great one for the men.

This die is on my wish list but unfortunately I don’t have any birthdays, Anniversary or other celebrations when it might materialise! Ideal for men’s cards. Lovely sample, thank you Sue.

This would make a super card for men. Great idea xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a great card and I love the colour palette. The herringbone background is one that is still on my list but it will be mine one day. Love the way you have criss-crossed it but when you moved it on the video I had to look away as my eyes could not cope :-) I'm not on Instagram but will continue to get my inspiration and daily 'fix' here on the blog.
