Today, I have a card linking up to several challenges. Firstly, the BIG blog hop from Papertrey Ink for August Blog Hop Challenge! We were given this inspiration photo from Nichole Heady and I wanted to try some masking for a DIY herringbone pattern.
I CASEd Nicki’s winning card from CASE Study for the current CASE Study #105 challenge. For my sentiment, I didn’t want to cover up the background, and I was too chicken to stamp directly on it, so I cut a small banner with a simple “happy birthday” sentiment, perfect for CAS-ual Friday #67! To give it a little more movement, I decided to offset the sentiment to the side rather than in the middle for Moxie Fab’s Asymmetry Challenge.
I have included a small photo tutorial on how I did the masking for the herringbone pattern. I used some washi tape, cut to the desired width and masked away.
Sorry for the long post for just one card!
