Health warning - get your sunglasses ready

As is so often the case, I procrastinate about trying something new for ages - and then wonder why I didn't take the plunge sooner. This time it's washi tape:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock, with the opposite corners rounded

- a piece of approx. 4" x 4" square card from the snippets folder and a few lines of washi tape (you didn't for one minute expect me not to buy pink did you!) - just placed diagonally across the piece of card and then the opposite corners rounded

- sentiment is by Craftwork Cards

- butterfly die cut using a snippet of purple card, Joy! crafts 'Vintage Flourishes Butterfly' die 6003/0023. Black pearls added down the body

And that was it, a very quick little play and job done. Oooh, I can think of tons of other ways to use washi tape - ha, just watch, it'll go out of style now!

  1. I love this card, Di. I have lots of washi tape which I use mostly for scrapping but I think you've created a great way of using it on cards and love the shape too - very different. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  3. Looks great...I finally do have a few colours which I have mainly used to scrapbook Little Mr P...so lots of primary colour type tapes.
    I recently picked up a few more girly ones...so think I will give this a go when I am home from you know where.

  6. Lovely! We all need a bit of colour in our lives. I haven't gathered much washi tape yet, and what I have got I have never used! So I don't think I'll be trying this one. Kate x

  20. Oh, Di, look at you with the Washi! Your card is not too bright for me and it's wonderfully CASlicious!! Welcome aboard this trend. Even if it goes out of style, which I doubt with all the companies invested in inventory, but even if it does, you can count on me using it on my cards for totally ever! xxoo Darnell
