Washi Tape Card

Hi Everyone!

My term designing for Splitcoastampers is over – it’s very bittersweet! I honestly didn’t think I could do it at times so it’s a relief, but it’s also sad that it’s over. It’s been such and honor and a blessing to create cards with such amazing cardmakers and papercrafters!

This card is for the July Challenge over at LiveLoveCards. This month’s challenge is cards made using washi tape. It’s SUPER easy!

I took my card base and covered most of it with strips of washi. Because I knew I wanted to do balloons, I decided to do a watercolor wash for the top layer.  Here’s what they both looked like before construction:

I let the watercolor panel air dry while I adhered washi to my card base. When I was done, I used some balloon dies and cut them out of the watercolor panel and drew some balloon strings on with a black marker. I die cut the words “happy birthday” and propped the ends over the balloon with some foam, added some sequins.

Thought I was done but felt something wasn’t right, so I added a strip of diagonal black/clear washi to the left and I think it definitely added a special element to this card. ALL DONE!

  1. Oh, Caly, it is sad when the Dirty Dozen Design Team term is up, but you’ve made us all proud to see the beautiful cards you’ve made these last six months. And it really does fly by. I absolutely love this card and delight at seeing the two separate pieces before you put it together. What a fabulous and fun card! I love the colors and the great sentiment dies! Hugs, sweet friend!
