Super Simple Washi Tape Cards

Retro Fresh Washi cards - Visit for details and more projects!Gold Watercolor Washi card - Visit for details and more projects!Before the Occasions Catalog becomes a thing of the past, I wanted to share these super-simple Washi Tape cards!

Any style of Washi Tape will work for this card idea… just layer them in a pattern you like and add the stamped focal piece… and DONE!

In these cards I used the You Make Me Happy stamp from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using Jet Black StazOn ink. I then die-cut the banner stamp using the Banner Framelits, which coordinate with the stamp set. If you don’t have the framelits, then a banner shape would be easy enough to cut out with Paper Snips.

I’d love to hear what you think about these Washi Tape cards. And let me know if you make any cards with this idea!


Afternoon Picnic Zig-Zag Cards

I made these cards at a recent scrapbook retreat weekend I attended. It’s not my usual style of card, but I think it turned out very nice. Even better, it was really simple!

One of the patterns in the Afternoon Picnic designer series paper had this great zig-zag design, so I just cut it out and attached it to the cards! I stamped the sentiment and flower, both from the Oh, Hello stamp set. Then just added some Jewel Pearls in all 3 sizes as a finishing touch.
