Happy July!

There've been quite a few cards I've showcased that include Washi Tape. I have to admit, I'd seen it in craft stores, and when Stampin' Up! launched their Washi Tape designs with the Epic Day This and That Journal, I was excited to try it.

There's nothing like Washi Tape…the designs are beautiful and it's fun to use.


It's easy to experiment with the different designs, colors, and placement, since it's very forgiving. It can be lifted and re-placed with very little effort. You can border it, banner it, flag it, write on it, stamp on it and embellish it. It's a paper crafter's dream!

This card was completed in very little time. Here's the how to:

  • The Whisper White card base is a 4 1/4" square
  • A 4" square of Basic Black is attached to the card base with Snail Adhesive;
  • The third layer is a 3 3/4" Whisper White square with rounded corners and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals;
  • I used two strips of Washi Tape from the Gingham Garden collection. The Basic Gray and White strip of Washi Tape is from the Epic Day Collection. All three strips were simply wrapped around the cardstock to create a colorful border pattern.
  • "Happy Big Day", from the Chalk Talk stamp set, is stamped with White Craft Ink onto Basic Black cardstock and cropped with the matching Chalk Talk Framelit.
  • I used my 1 1/4" circle punch for the Strawberry Slush circle to balance the color pallette and center my design.
