CAS Washi Tape

The "Less Is More" Challenge blog is featuring Washi Tape this week.  In all honesty, clean-and-simple (CAS) cards are very hard for me. I'm a pile-it-on kind of crafter, but it's fun to branch out once in a while and try something outside our comfort zone.
 To create my cards, I cut a white panel slightly smaller than my card and distressed the edges with scissors. Next, I applied washi tape to some white cardstock and then die cut it using my Birds On a Wire Die (Spellbinders). I layered that on an embossed  strip (Circular Grid Border - Anna Griffin), and used my Martha Stewart Scoring board and scored a line on either side. The sentiment comes from the Hampton Art set, "Home Tweet Home." I finished off the front with three brightly colored sequins.
I also decorated the inside with the same stamp set, added some more washi tape and a die cut from Momento.

So glad you "branched out" (love your pun!) and made these cool, festive cards! I'm a bird-lover, so you get an A for that, and I love bright on white, so another A... and you finished the inside! Bravo. Thank you for being so faithful at SOS:)

Fabulous card! Great idea to die cut the washi tape, very effective against the white. xx

Those birds look so funky in their bright and bold washi tape Esther and it is so good to see how they look in different colour ways too. The crisp white embossing behind them adds so much visual interest as well as texture. Great to see the tape make an appearance on the inside of the cards too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

Fantastic cards - I love both colourways! Such a great use of washi and a really appealing look with the bright colours and background embossing adding even more impact. Love these! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
