SU Oh, Hello

Played around making a card tonight when I should have been working on my Convention Swaps…but I had  a lot of fun with some Washi tape I had found in my stash so that’s what really matters, right?  I think I picked this tape up during a Christmas sale this past year- it’s so colorful! I can’t wait to get my SU Washi tape in my next order! I ran a piece of Very Vanilla CS that put the Washi tape on through my Big Shot with my Scallop die cutting the neat scallops. Just remember whatever color CS you put under your semi-translucent tape shows through so I used Very Vanilla as the “white” space on this CAS card. I used Cindy’s neat sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 91 as my starting point but remembered how Marion Vagg’s card over at the Muse Card Club # 22 this week featured  a large banner with a bold sentiment so I made a bigger banner than I first intended with a thick sentiment on this card.

I am still learning how to take better photos but here are two with some different lighting and angles:

  1. I like this card, Cindy. I haven’t taken the Washi tape plunge yet! It’s really neat how you incorporated it. I created a card for Freshly Made, but I’m not putting it up until Monday. Thanks for sharing this one. It’s going into my favorites folder! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Bernadette. I have not received my SU Washi tape yet but this one is fabulous- so easy to work with! I just made a retirement card with the Washi on the front and “taped” a Starbucks giftcard on the inside- it looks really cool all coordinated! Have a wonderful weekend. How’s the move going?

  2. I had to come see how you did the various colors on one border. Washi tape. Who would have thought. Maybe others who have used it knew what you did but I don’t have any so it never occurred to me. I love mixing pattern papers and that’s what intrigued me. It turned out great.

    1. Hello, Bobby. Thanks for stopping by;) I actually wondered what to do with Washi tape other than just tape it across or down the front of a card. I loved this particular design and thought, hmmm…maybe put it on some Cardstock and then run it through with a die. So easy but the first time I did it, I had the washi tape side down on my cutting plate and it got that characteristic imprint of the cutting plate on it so I ran it through the next time the opposite way to keep the good side clean…lol.
