The moment I saw Chrissy Larson’s card layout at the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge, I knew I’d be reaching for my Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape. These shiny, metallic designs come in a fun variety of widths – and this sketch was made to showcase them. What fun! Here’s my card:
- Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape. I love the metallic shine of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape – and the variety of widths. With copper, gold and silver foil, there are so many options for showcasing this tape – but the best way (in my humble opinion) is to showcase them all at once). Mixed metals might not always be in fashion, but I think it’s quite cool. These tapes pair with any of our foil sheets – there’s even a little Champagne shimmer in the widest piece of tape showcased above. Here’s a look at this washi tape:
Here’s a video Stampin’ Up! made to showcase this washi tape and the other shiny things in the Year of Cheer Suite:
- Seasonal Accents. The washi tape was the start of my fall-themed card. The rich colors lend well to a Thanksgiving project, so… To coordinate with the gorgeous, shiny washi tape I cropped this gorgeous leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies with Copper Foil paper. How gorgeous is that leaf?! It just fits in that “bend” so well. I added this sentiment from Remarkable You (I masked the “and”). This set has proven to be one of the most versatile sets I’ve ever owned. Here’s a look at Remarkable You:
- Tip for Cutting with Foil. If you’ve ever run a piece of of foil through the Big Shot, you’re left with a piece of lightly scratched foil (unless your cutting plates are perfectly pristine). To prevent my foil from getting scratched, I place a piece of copy paper (often times a recycled shipping report from a Stampin’ Up! order) between the foil and the top cutting plate. That’s cutting plate, foil, die, copy paper, cutting plate. Not only does the piece I’m cropping stay scratch-free, but my leftover piece of foil can be used for another project.
