Card #23 –  Washi tape Card

Card 23 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

I love washi tape!  Washi tape is a Japanese paper tape that comes in all different colors and patterns and is really versatile.  I’ve used it in card making before when I made a Valentine’s card and a St. Patrick’s Day card.  It’s also fantastic for scrapbooking and journaling.

 

For this card I used plum textured cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11″) for my base and white cardstock for the front panel.

Washi tape attached to white cardstockI started by choosing 5 coordinating rolls of washi tape.  I took a piece of white cardstock and starting laying down strips of each washi tape repeating the pattern twice.  Once the tape was on the cardstock I took my brayer and rolled the paper to make sure the tape was adhered well.

Punching flower shape out of cardstockI took the white cardstock front panel and punched flower shapes in a fairly haphazard fashion.  I then glued this panel to the washi tape cardstock and trimmed the excess.

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment, adding some rhinestone gems and going over the flowers with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.

Here is the finished card.

I just want to make sure I understand – These washi tape things aren’t treats?  I’m not supposed to gnaw on them like they’re a delectable morsel?  Got it!
