The new Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape makes it easy to create cards for any occasion.  Add a quick greeting and some Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad dots and your card is done!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a fresh floral design from our 2020 Spring Collection.

Attach Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape to pale peach cardstock and diecut the smallest and second-largest flowers from the Birch Press Design Vivid Bloom Stitched Layer Set.  Diecutting the tape ensures clean, crisp edges  - and a delicate stitched pattern to match the green background rectangle.

Here's a tip I learned from Dave Brethauer...attach something to the torn or cut edge of wide washi tape. It keeps the end visible and minimizes wrinkling when you're using it.  It can also be used as a straight edge to tear the tape. I use strips of those lightweight kitchen cutting mats from the dollar store or Ikea.

Cut green cardstock with the 2.1" x 3.3" Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die.  Pressure-emboss the inner rectangle with the 1.6" x 2.8" die.  

Stamp "greetings" - from the Sunflower Wreath Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne. Attach the pieces to a side-folded white A2 card.  Add ¼" punched circles of the green sheet from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

Hope you'll add a roll of this beautiful floral tape to your stash.  Its soft watercolored look will enhance any card and it's great layered over different shades of cardstock.  I like it best layered over medium shades - not too light, not too dark.

I'll be using the Stitched Bloom Set I bought for a lot of my classes too.  It's a classic, versatile design that's perfect for any occasion and coordinates with all of the stitched dies in my stash.

Join us for the BRIGHTER DAYS AHEAD class at Impress if you're in the Seattle area and have a holiday on Monday.  We'll be using the Whittles, Scribbles and Stacking Dies from Poppystamps, Memory Box and Birch Press Design - AND a lot of the just-released items from our 2020 Spring Collection.  Enjoy the 10% class shopping  discount - it'll be a great time to save on everything you want from our latest release.  

Thanks for visiting...see you again on Thursday!

Thanks for buying them - you'll love how versatile they are - we'll be using them in class. Your car already knows it's taking you back to Tuk tomorrow - see you, and thanks for taking all of my classes!

Oooh that washi tape is so pretty! Pairs nicely with the new bloom dies.

Beautifully created card!!
