Washi tape card

Hi everyone!

It's almost Friday!!! I can't wait for this weekend! Hope everyone else is looking forward to some down time this weekend, too.

I wanted to pop in and share a card I did this afternoon. I've been avoiding the washi tape craze for a long time...but, alas, I succumbed to the ease of using it! This week's challenge is from the great Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and it was to use washi tape.

Here's my card:
I used two different patterns of washi tape on my card. I chose to use the flower print tape as kind of a wallpaper/paneling effect with some turquoise cardstock. I alternated the strips and added some faux white stitching to the cardstock strips. Then, I used the other gingham pattern tape on the bottom of the panel. I layered a turquoise and white ribbon on top of that and then added an orange button with twine for a pop of color. The sentiment is from Hero Arts--and I love it.

Gotta admit--washi tape is extremely easy to use. I can see why it's become so popular! And now there's just so many different colors, patterns, and even ways to do it yourself. Have you guys joined in on the craze yet or was I the last one? :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
