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.
