Scribble Holly Trio Outline, Scribble Holly Trio Background, and Twas the Night Wide Washi Tape Holiday Card
by Anne Thompson

I LOVE the new Washi tapes at 4.5" wide!  I wanted to use Twas the Night Washi tape as the background for the new Scribble Holly Trio dies.  I had some off-white house-shaped notecards that I thought would be perfect covered with the tape.

  • I used a Juniper notecard and adhered a piece of the green striped paper from the DASHING STRIPES AND DOTS PP1002 6X6 collection.  I cut it just a wee bit smaller than the top of the notecard so some of the juniper green showed around the edge.
  • I unwrapped the wide TWAS THE NIGHT WASHI TAPE WT501 and unrolled it and stuck it to a couple of pieces of house-shaped paper.  I trimmed the extra off with some sharp scissors and used a tape runner to secure one of the houses to the notecard.

  • Next I die cut the SCRIBBLE HOLLY TRIO OUTLINE 94344 from another Juniper notecard.
  • I inked up the edges with VersaClair Shady Lane dark green ink to add some texture.

  • I cut the SCRIBBLE HOLLY TRIO BACKGROUND 94351 from a scrap of a lighter green paper.
  • I inked the edges of the three pieces with more of the VersaClair Shady Lane dark green ink.

  • To add the holly to the front of the house I started with using a glue pen on the main stem and then placed the Holly Trio Background pieces in place under the holly leaf outlines using a tape runner.  I thought the light green was too bright, so I added the juniper pieces on top of them and used a glue pen on the center vein and the leaf outlines after the background pieces were in place.  This gave a bit more dimension to the leaves.

  • To finish the card I added sticky-backed red gems for berries.

This is a card that will be easy to produce in quantity--and I really do need to get a lot of cards made.  It's also one I'll use with my Seniors Group in November.

I think you are going to love the new Washi tapes.  They really do make lovely backgrounds for this year's holiday dies!

Happy Crafting!
