Washi Tape Cards

Recently I shared two cards focusing on washi tape at

Washi tape brings a fun, slick texture and can add a quick pop of pattern and color 
to a plain cardstock.  For today’s cards I’m sharing a couple of my favorite ways to
 use these tapes on cards!
As shown with the first card, I love to use dies along with the washi tape to
 create a one-of-a-kind embellishment.

To start, I cut a scrap piece of white cardstock just a bit larger than the die shape.  
Pieces of tape were adhered to the paper and then die-cut.

The other umbrella components were die-cut from various 6X6 “I Love Sunshine”
 papers.  Strips of decorative border sticker were added to the top and bottom 
of the card and the design left fairly clean-and-simple.

 For the second card I implemented a brick-laying pattern using two different 
washi tape designs and a 3.5”X4.75” cardstock paper.

Start at any area at the top of the paper and place a small strip of tape at a
 diagonal angle.  Place the second strip of tape so that the end matches up with
 the end of the first strip.
 Continue with the pattern until the desired look has been achieved.

A matching set of flip flops (chipboard sticker) was placed at the bottom, along
 with a sentiment sticker and a couple of flowers.  Again, a quick and simple
 card to brighten someone’s day!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
