I wanted to share a card with you where I used washi tape and the celebrate you thinlit dies. I sent this card to my sister in law as she just passed her driving test and it was her birthday. Lots to celebrate! And many Congratulations to her!
I bought washi tape a long time ago but I haven’t really used any and since I have wedding expenses coming up at the end of the next three months I have to be good with money! No spontaneous or cheeky craft purchases for me 😦 So in this period of time you will see me using a lot of the stash I bought a while ago mixed in with some Sale-a-Bration items which is actually not so bad. Also if you have not heard of Sale-a-Bration yet then please check out a post I made about it here!
I love washi tape. It’s so pretty but im also not so good at getting it used and you kind of need to – I have seen washi tape go off! Yes, it becomes all sticky and you can’t use it. So better use it while you can!
I decided to cover a piece of card with washi tape – in no particular order – to make it look like designer series paper and it looks great! You can do as I have done here and just use it on a card front or you can use it for scrapbooking or you can die cut from it – which I have done for a Valentines project!
Personally I like the washi tape has been bent around the card and not cut as it gives it some nice dimension. If you wanted the die cuts to stand more out you can die cut another piece in black and layer it behind – making the black peek at the side like a shadow. It will make it stand out for sure.
I will be posting my Valentines project next week. I think it’s the first year ever I have been so organised! Have you thought about Valentines Day yet? Are you doing anything special? I would love to hear from you.
