Once again, I’ve gone to one of my absolute favorite card sketch sites to get some inspiration. Freshly Made Sketches is a great card challenge site that you must really check out!
When I first saw this week’s sketch, I immediately thought of washi tape. I don’t know where that came from because I don’t think that I’ve ever used washi tape on any craft item. My small stash tends to be used to hold card pieces down when I’m die cutting. I went with my idea, and I’m pretty happy with the results.
Here’s the latest FMS…
and here’s my card…
I chose 3 of my favorite washi tape designs that coordinated pretty well together. I simply ripped a piece (no measuring or cutting with scissors here) of each and placed them on a piece of white card stock. I then matted that piece with some blue card stock and then adhered that to my A2 top folding card base.
Using one of my favorite heart stamps, Hero Arts Patterned Heart, I heat embossed it with Recollections gold embossing powder. The heart is attached with dimensional adhesive. All that was left was the greeting. I decided on one of the greetings from Simon Says Stamp’s Hydrangea Blooms stamp set.
I hope you like it!

Oh this is cool! I love your idea of the washi tape – especially with those fab bright colours. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
Thanks so much for your kind comment. I love FMS, so I will be a participant as often as I can be. Thanks for the inspiration!
