Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Washi Tape Cards

Hi Everybody, 

Here are the first cards that I have made using my washi tape from The Washi Tape Shop and I have to say I am really pleased with the outcome.

These are the photos of the steps I took and I ended up with two cards from one attempt.

I cut lots of flowers and leaves and used what was left over from making the gold frame to create the second one, so nothing was wasted.

I chose the washi tape with the red flowers on it and layered it onto some scrap card. I did the same with some green tape for the leaves.

I used dies to cut out the shapes and I cut plenty to add to my design;

This beautiful tape has gold foiling on it and it really shines in the light.

With oval nesting dies I cut one frame in gold and the rest in white to layer them up, gluing the gold one to the top. 

This made a nice deep frame to sit on the front of my card. 

It was the smaller oval that was left over from cutting this frame that I used to create the second card.

I made a 5x7 card base and cut another mat slightly smaller to sit on the front and this panel I embossed it in a Trellis folder. 

I flat glued this to the base and put to one side for the glue to dry a little.

I added the Journal Memory Tape to the back of the oval frame and arranged my flowers and leaves around the edge and I used foam tape to give some of the height.

I tucked the leaves into the display and added a gold sentiment to the top and I think this is very pretty card to send to any one for a birthday. 

Then I still had some flowers and leaves left over, so I added in some washi tape stripes to the embossed panel  and added it to the card with the gold oval on the top.

The flowers and leaves fitted perfectly onto this shape and the greeting was tucked in at the bottom of the card.

I decorated envelopes to match both cards and I was more than satisfied with the look. 

On this envelope I added in one of the little flower stickers on top of the Journal tape

I would be happy to give either of these cards to someone and I think they would be happy to get them too. 

I really enjoyed playing with these Washi Tapes as I have never worked with them in this way before.

But then I have never had Washi Tapes like these before and so I will certainly be trying them again on many many cards and envelopes.

So thanks again to The Washi Tape Shop for their beautiful Washi Tapes and if you wanted to try some for yourself then don’t forget you can get a 10% discount off your order by adding in the code CHRISTINA10
