I created this card for a Featured Stamper challenge last month. Cheryl has such a wonderful gallery, I wanted to case another card of hers. This time I chose this CAS washi tape card.  I created my Washi Tape strips out of Tissue Stock from Canvas Corp. I cut strips in different sizes.

The biggest strip was stamped with the the smallest diamond images from Distressed Diamonds stamp set in Pear Tart Memento Ink. The thin strip was stamped with the snowflake background from Christmas Ornaments in Bahama Blue Memento Ink.  The last strip was sponged with Pear Memento Ink and stamped with a background stamp from By the Numbers in Jet Black Archival ink.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of textured Whisper White Stampin’ Up! cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. A line was scored at 3/4″ on the bottom. Then the Faux Washi tape strips were adhered with a Xyron glue stick. Another line was scored right above the tissue strips, as well a partial strip 1/8″ under the lower score line.

A sentiment from Merry Kissmas was stamped on the right hand side partially on, partially off the highest tissue paper strip.  Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut with the two largest Let it Snowflake die-namic dies. They were stacked with foam adhesive squares and topped with a button.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  13. Very cool, Beate. Post-It also makes tapes now, and they are great to use as faux washi…and you can customize them to match your design when you make it yourself.

  14. Dittos on the Post It Note Tape that comes in rolls like Scotch tape and in many colors as well as white. It’s great to be able to actually match your project by stamping on it. So far, locally, I’ve found it at local office supply stores and Walmart at prices that range from $4 and change to $3 and change.

  15. So Pretty Beate! You just have that special quality! Tfs! Also I was wondering how do YOU make your washi Tape? Hugs Traci ;0)
