Tips & Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Tips & Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are some very talented “Close to my Heart” consultants  highlighting the Original Argyle technique as shown on page 91 in the Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book!

I had so much fun making this card and it was a real challenge for me. There are so many great designs in so many styles, I can always find inspiration but this technique really though me for a loop. We were told to use the "Original Argyle" featured on page 91 of the Close To My Heart Fall/Winter 2011 Idea Book was our assignment so I used of flower shape and cut some to make the argyle type designs. If you came from Michelle B's Blog blog hop you are on the right track. Find the complete blog hop list at Debi's Blog.
