I love the background of this card. It's called a herringbone background, and a great way to get rid of scraps. It was fairly easy to make, and looks fabulous in person.
I put double sided tape (I used carpet tape) on cardstock, then cut my strips into uniform widths. You just start laying them down in a herringbone pattern (you can get the idea from my card), and trim off the excess.
Then I stamped and colored Miss Kitty (available from My Paper Moon) and layered it on my card.
Hope you've enjoyed seeing it.
