Adapted from needlepoint

Today's card features a technique called bargello. An embroidery term referring to flat stitches creating zigzag lines, bargello is now crossing over into papercrafting. Using strips of designer series paper and staggering them creates a similar effect to bargello. It's a great way to add some visual interest and texture to your projects, and it's fabulous for all those random scraps of paper that accumulate!

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
