Herringbone "Quilt-look" card with Warm Hugs Designer Paper

This is super fun, quick card to make. I'll be on Facebook.com/SipCraftCare tonight Sept 8 at 5pm and I'll create this card.  Click here to see the video that was on FB Live

If you'd like to craft-along, all you need is:

-about 8-10 strips of 6" x 1/2" designer paper (smaller patterns work best)

-Whisper White 5 1/2 x 3 3/4

-Matching Cardstock 5 1/2 x 4

-Card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded)

-ribbon or trim


If you sew or quilt I bet you (like me) see a "quilt block" in this fun card.  

One key tip is how to start your herringbone card:  on the Whisper White start with a T, that is a strip on the diagonal (the cross of the T), see the middle red strip with dots, and then adhere the vertical of the T at a right angle, see the green strip with x's.  I'll post the video I  make at 5pm, here on this page.

This is such a fun way to use your designer paper.  If you use paper from 1 pack it automatically matches, I love that!

Hope to see you tonight at 5pm.

Also I've updated my class list:  These are in person in Hartland, all 10-2, include 6-8 projects, stamp set and light lunch (and treats prizes and fun!)
