"CBH Aug 18 - Blue/Purple - Herringbone Thank You Card" 
Size: 5"w x 7"h
I'm being real good and have been using my cardstock ends. This was a technique I saw on Craft Club "carpet tape chronicles video". I've done similar techniques with double sided tape (same thing) using different patterns, weaving etc. So I took a bunch of blue and purple ends, rubber stamped and embossed some; purples using  gold embossing powder and the large Flourish stamp from Quietfire Design; blue ones with silver embossing using a Bubbles stamp (Rosewood - Frogs Whiskers Ink). Other strips I put through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder or Circle Dots folder; Some strips I left plain and there were a few scrapbook papers in the bunch. And a couple pearlized Quill strips.

I used one of the quill strips cut in half lengthwise as an overlapping border on the aqua card, then mounted my trimmed down rectangle. Rubber stamped the sentiment "Thank You" (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Majestic Blue and clear embossed it on a blue toned vellum. Adhered it to my card with a bead of Diamond Glaze around the perimeter then added medium sized white half pearls at the corners. And, to finish it of with a bit of glitz I added a few blue faux rhinestones at some of the points.
