I know many people in the crafty world have seen and used Washi tape. If you haven't, Washi is a patterned tape that you use for fun additions and embellishment to pages, cards, altered books, even organizers use it to color code calendars. Target has a line of Washi that comes color blocked with two versions of polka dots, one stripe, and a solid. It comes in red, yellow, blue, orange, and green. I picked up the red and green for some Christmas crafting. The first thing I used them on is this card.
I used my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge to make a basic cut card out of white cardstock. On the inside, I added the Washi , leaving the trees open to the sticky part of the tape. I then sprinkled it with large crystallized glitter. It sticks to the tape perfectly!
Then I added a strip of the red stripe across the bottom, tucking it around the edge. I like the candy cane look of it! The I combined 2 stamp sets to create the sentiment, stamped in Tulip ink.
Now here's a thing about me. I have an issue with throwing away crafty goodies. So I had to figure out what I could do with the trees cut from the first card. Here's what I came up with.
It's a little bit of country glam, and I love it! I used a Kraft card base that I rounded the corners of just 2 edges. It's the same design as the first card, but tweaked. I pop dotted the trees, leaving the backing on.
Then the trees were covered in glue and then I pressed fun flock onto them. I heat embossed in white the sentiment, and added glitter tape under it.
Two variations of a simple Christmas card that I will be happy to send out this week. They took me less than an hour total to make 20 (10 of each design).
Thanks for stopping by!
