Don’t you love a good secret? When you hear “pssst…” you might think you’re about to get the dish about the antics at Mrs. Webster’s dinner party last Tuesday – what a scandal! In this case, though, I just want to grab your attention to say “thank you” with a clean and simple card. The Paper Players are challenging us to make a Clean and Simple Project that uses Washi Tape. I was excited to play around with it and find a new and unique way to use it. I think I did that. Here’s my card:
And here’s the challenge banner for Nance’s CAS Washi Tape challenge:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Pssst. Happy Watercolor has a fun pssst sentiment that can be paired with so many sentiments. I haven’t used it yet, so I was excited to play around with it here. I balanced the “pssst” and the “thank you” here by placing one on the top left and one on the bottom right – they frame the bright washi tape strips and flower. Your eyes have to run over the tape to arrive at the concluding sentiment. Yipee!
- Washi Tape over Ribbon. Who knew? As I was playing around with my washi tape yesterday, I realized that the Coastal Cabana strip of washi tape fits nicely over the satin strip in the center of the 5/8″ Organza Ribbon. Woo hoo! That allowed me to layer the Coastal Cabana strip over the Tangerine Tango strip without one showing through the other.
- Build-a-Flower. I first created this flower on a post last month (see it here). I just love the combination of the Petite Petals flower with the scallop from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a candy dot. I added a Tangerine Tango candy dot to this flower to better coordinate with the Tangerine Tango washi tape.
