Ribbon Carousel Challenge 90 - Washi Tape

Hey everyone!

This month's Ribbon Carousel challenge is Washi tape.  Everyone has a ton, right?

I thought I would take the opportunity to knock out a couple more birthday cards for Andrew's kids at  school.

I love how versatile washi is.  It's a great alternative to using patterned paper or a background stamp

For the card above I put down a mix of washi tape diagonally.  Then I used a scrap of cardstock and laid down several rows of black and white polka dot washi from which the 'happy' was die cut.  I die cut the 'birthday' from regular cardstock, adhered it to some vellum, and then adhered that to the card using some very strategically cut and placed pieces of foam tape.  I wasn't sure how my adhesive would work on the washi, but Tombow Multi Mono works like a charm.

I figured while I was at it I would make another card with an extra die cut sentiment I had, so I just randomly added some strips of washi to a cardstock panel and adhered the sentiment on top.

Now it's your turn.  Create a project using washi and link it up over at the Ribbon Carousel.  One random participant will win a set of 12 spools filled with 4 spools each of seam binding, baker's twine, and May Arts ribbon.
