Today is all about Washi Tape. The new catalogue has this beautiful set of three Washi Tapes that coordinate so well – a Melon Mambo pattern, a Daffodil Delight gingham and multi colored flowers on white. Once I got started I just couldn’t stop!
On this first card, I made a large background by adhering strips of each pattern side by side. This stuff is really easy to work with and very forgiving. I found it easy to lift up and reposition if I didn’t let it sit too long.
And each roll has 5 yards so you will receive 15 yards total for $6.50. Yeah!
The stamped flowers are from the Secret Garden stamp set (Wood 129141, Clear 129144) stamped in Island Indigo, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. The greeting is from Petite Pairs (Wood 122495, Clear 122497) punched out with the new Artisan Label punch.
For this card, I used only the Melon Mambo patterned Washi Tape and added a stamped Wildflower Meadow image on top of it. The "Hello" greeting is from the Lacy & Lovely Stamp Set (Wood 122885, Clear 122887)
This card has lengths of the Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight gingham patterned Washi Tape with a 2-1/2" punched circle of the same Wildflower Meadow image.
This is my least favorite of the four cards. I would love to tell you that is looks better in person but it doesn’t. I can’t fault the Washi Tape, the background works it’s just that the Widlflower Meadow Embossing Folder cutout is too heavy looking for the card.
