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!
Cut a Very Vanilla card base (5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”) and a Very Vanilla piece for the technique (5” x 3-3/4”)
Place the Vanilla piece on the Simply Scored Tool, scoring both 5” sides at 1-5/8”. Score both 3-3/4” sides at 1-1/4”. Your piece should look like the photo shown.
Choose your stamp set and very lightly stamp your design on the scored piece of card stock with the scored indentations facing upwards. Be careful to not press down too hard. You don’t want to get ink into the scored channels.
Use your stamped piece as a focal piece or background on your card.
My sample layers two patterns of Sweater Weather DSP behind the stamped piece, all layers adhered to each other and the card front using dimensionals. The final touch is the burlap ribbon tied with the stitched grosgrain.
I love what I do, and I love to share it with others!
