Washi tape card design idea - use washi to ground the focal point

Hi friends, I found some cute washi tapes on Amazon and before I knew it they were in my cart and delivered to my home! After some deliberation, I have decided to "use before buy" and challenged myself to use these washi tapes as much as I can. I am also wanting to do the same thing with the rest of my craft supplies. Unless it is a new tool or a significantly different design that I cannot recreate with what I have, I will not buy it. This is also challenging me to think about multiple ways to use my supplies. Not sure how long my resolve will hold but let's see :-)

So in today's project, I implemented the first idea using a wide washi tape - using it to ground my design.

I also made a quick video:

If you prefer written steps:

  1. Dry emboss the card front with a 3D embossing folder.

  2. Create a base layer on the bottom half of the card front with washi tape. Cut across the width if needed. Add another slim washi as a divider between the washi design and the card base.

  3. Put the flowers together and use chipboard stickers for sentiments.

  4. Assemble the design and add gems to finish off.
