Do you have a ton of left over scraps of cardstock and Designer Series Paper? Here is a great way to use up some of those scraps. This is called a Herringbone design and it is very easy to do. Instead of throwing those small pieces away, you can use for something like this. For this card I used the Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks in Brights. One of the reasons I love this paper is you get 4 sheets of different designs in every color Stampin’ Up! offers. That is 40 sheets of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper for $21.95. It is an awesome value! There are even stacks for the In-Colors!
The stamp set I used is called A Dozen Thoughts which is a very versatile set. It has a sentiment for just about every thought out there. I love sets that can be used over and over.
