On Saturday, I shared a card I made with Season of Style Designer Washi Tape and cutouts from the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die. I whimsically dangled a Christmas ornament from the J in JOY. What fun! If you missed that card, check it out here. I’ll wait for you to come back. Oh! You saw it already? OK, great! When I posted that card, I promised you I would share a different card today that uses the same technique and same layout – but it’s still a different card. Golly, I can’t wait for you to see this card. Oh, gosh, I’m bouncing with anticipation because I know that you are about to scroll down and check out the card I’m sharing today. OK, I can’t even stand it. OK, let’s get this started…here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- Washi Tape Letters. On Saturday, I shared some tips on spacing the letters on the card front. Today, I wanted to share a “quick and dirty” about how I finished the letters in the first place. I cropped three pieces of the white board from the back of a pack of Designer Series Paper. I taped down strips of tape, alternating patterns and combinations of tapes – some faced up-and-down, while others are angled. I ran those pieces through the Big Shot with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die.
- Not Washed Out. I tried to mat these washi tape letters over three different papers – Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. None worked because the letters didn’t “pop” against the background. The washi tape letters were getting washed out. A quick swich-a-roo to Rich Razzleberry, and my BOO really stood out. When it came time to hang my hat through my O, I realized that the O on the right was cropped with a piece of black tape on the bottom, so the tip of the hat got lost. Thank goodness I had two O’s so I could flip them around. It’s the little things that make all the difference. I wasn’t going to let the hat or that washi tape get washed out. Two washouts knocked out. Woo hoo! Boo!
- Lining the envelope. It would have been so easy to line the envelope with the same Designer Series Paper that was featured on the card. I wanted something Basic Black and a bit spooky, so I flipped through my scraps of Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper and found a piece with a large skull on it. Perfect! I trimmed it to size, glued it to the flap of the envelope and then trimmed around the edges for a finished look with a spooky skull.
