Tried a new technique today! It's called the Herringbone Technique. It's all about the paper.
- Select four different color coordinated papers or card stock. This example uses two solid and two patterned.
- Cut into A2 size pieces. Cut ½” strips of each piece length wise. The technique allows you to also cut a variety of widths or all the same width.
- Apply adhesive to the 4¼” x 5½” white card stock. In this project, the Xyron machine was used to apply the adhesive. Remove the protective paper from the sticky surface on the card stock.
- On the sticky side, build the background, the Herringbone Technique, by forming “V’s.” Match up ends and go the opposite direction of the previous piece laid down to create a “V.” Trim pieces after building each side and use shorter strips on other sides. Trim final piece to size desired.
- Create a pattern with the colors (see photo).
- Stamp bunny image on white card stock. Stamp bunny image again on design paper. Line him up so that the egg is over a pattern on the design paper.
- Color bunny on white card stock with markers. Cut bunny out.
- For the design paper image, cut around bunny’s hands to get just the egg piece.
- Adhere cut out egg over bunny image you colored.
- Cut oval out of design paper and adhere colored bunny onto oval.
- Adhere all layers.
- For the inside, stamp bunny on white card stock so it looks like he’s peeking over the bottom of the card. Adhere cardstock to inside of card.
