Crazy for You…

Do you see all the washi tape? It’s hiding in lots of places on these Valentine’s cards by designer Carrie Walz!

In the first card, the washi tape is tiled to become the background behind the chipboard frame. The edges sticking out from under the frame in a few places make the card less stiff and formal, and carry through the vertical line outside the frame.

The tape is harder to find on this one…it’s hidden on the clothespin! Washi tape is great for giving color and pattern to things like clothes pins. It adheres all by itself, is flexible for uneven or non-flat surfaces, and can easily go around corners or curves.

Here again, the washi tape is tiled, but this time it is to create a “patterned paper” cover for the heart die cut! It was also used to create a fast and easy border element at the bottom of the card.

Washi tape is a very versatile coordinate to add to your creative toolbox…don’t forget to grab yours and see how many different purposes you can find for it on your cards!
