I have several spools of washi tape – Epic Day This & That, Season of Style, Witches’ Brew, Gingham Garden. Wow! Do I really have that much? I’ve been using it for personal cards and notes but haven’t really showcased it too much on my blog. Until now. Here’s a card I made that features the Season of Style Washi Tape:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- A Whimsical Ornament. When I first saw Mosaic Madness, I envisioned the shapes as Christmas ornaments (see my card here). I was so happy to see that the Holiday Catalog gave us a beautiful ornament to fit the Mosaic Madness punch with Very Merry Tags. My ornament hangs off the J in Joy, adding a little movement to the [otherwise] grounded sentiment. My new group member, Kelly DeTommaso, hung an ornament from a different word in one of her cards recently (see it here), and I just had to follow her lead.
- Washi Tape Letters. I cut three squares from the white cardboard backing that accompanies our Designer Series Paper and covered them with strips of Season of Style Washi Tape. I then ran the cardboard through my Big Shot with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz, cropping the three letters. I am sharing a similar card on Monday and will have more to say about this then. Ooooh! Did I just use my wizard-like marketing skills to convince you to come back on Monday?
- Properly Placing the Letters. If you have to center three letters on a panel, logic tells us that the center of the middle letter will be centered on the panel. Guess what! Logic doesn’t own you! The J in JOY is not nearly as wide as the Y in JOY, so the O is not centered on the card. After I fit the letters exactly where they needed to be to center the word, I removed the J and the O and glued down the Y. I then glued down the J and O, making sure they line up along the bottom of the letters.

Just in case my above marketing ploy didn’t work above, I want to remind you that I’m sharing a similar card on Monday – same layout with a very different look. I’ll also be sharing more tips on that card – so come back Monday.
