I am one of those people who has a pretty decent amount of Washi tape and yet I consistently forget to use it! So when I saw the current Challenge Theme (#253) over at Just Us Girls is Washi Tape I was in! I needed to make a birthday card so I decided that would be my theme.
Fun colors, right? This card has all kinds of things going on! but I feel like it all pulled together well. The washi tape was used in the each corner of the white cardstock. I wanted this card to have a camera theme so I love using that film framelit die and camera framelit die to achieve that appearance. One interesting thing about this card is the gold arrow and camera. Those were stamped using the Stampin’ Dazzle Gold Marker Stampin’ Up sells rather than the matching ink color used in the paper (Baked Brown Sugar) Because I don’t have the ink! I thought it looked pretty close and it stamped well so I am glad it worked!
I have to mention that I must be in love with the Stampin’ Up! Linen thread….. I have used in the last 5 or 6 projects I have made and also keep doing the loops of the thread rather than tying it. I try other things, but this linen thread keeps looking the best so I will just keep using it! I think it is safe to say I would recommend getting some of the Linen Thread!
Hope you like the card and make this your reminder to go use your washi tape!! 🙂
