Washi Tape and the new Garden Party Release
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I am joining you again today, and this time I want to talk about the new washi tapes.  There are 3 new washi tapes available in two sizes (wide and 1").  Here are the designs:




Cornelia violet


Cornelia variegated

I chose to work with the wide Aqua for my card.  I love the wide washi tape size because it is fantastic for home decor on glass, notebooks, frames, etc.  If you use it on cards, it is great because it changes color depending on what color of cardstock you use underneath it.  That makes the washi tape really versatile for cardmaking.  I wanted the washi on my pattern be very vibrant, so I placed it on top of some white cardstock.  Here is a close up of the washi piece as well as the new patterned paper I paired with it:


I used the same papers from the Garden Folly pack I used yesterday, so now I have two cards that coordinate with each other.  I would like to make a couple more from the same pack so that I will have four cards that would make a nice gift set of cards:


There is something so satisfying about cards that coordinate with each other.

To finish my card, I added the celebrate die along with a stamped sentiment.  The flowers and leaves are from the Magnolia Double Arch die.  That die set makes a really beautiful floral circle, but I cut the pieces apart so that I could layer the flowers on top of each other and add some of the leaves for the background.

Thanks for stopping by today!







Such pretty papers and the wide washi is gorgeous, thanks for the inspiration.

Wonderful, as always, laura.
