I struggled with a new design this week. I had numerous failed attempts with an embossing and flower card that I'm working on, so far this week's project, I wanted to make sure I could make something I could execute easily. Papercraft Essentials #163 has this fantastic bee die cut with a number of stamps. While I've created a number of a washi cards in the past, I've never made washi tape go from the top to the bottom of the card.
What You'll Need:
Black Washi Tape
3D Adhesive Poppers
Die Cut and Stamp from Paper Essentials.
This week is super straight forward. Start with your usual A2 size card (8.5" x 4.25") and a yellow cut out (5.1" x 3.8").
From here, you have options. You can place the washi tape on the yellow cardstock vertical or at a diagonal. I'm partial to the diagonal design.
With any of the excess washi tape, simply fold it on the back side. From there, it's as simple as stamping your phrase and using the die cut.
Be sure to try a variety of different placements.
When you're ready to adhere the Bee Happy! phrase and the bee, be sure to use some 3D adhesive stickers to give your card some dimension.
And voila! It's as easy as that. This is one of the easiest cards you can make (especially if you're new to card making). I love Washi cards as they always look bold. Stay tuned next week for collage cards!
