Welcome to the new two-week challenge from Make My Monday, #172. Our host for #172, Dawn, chose washi tape as the theme for the challenge. Therefore, this challenge really required me to think outside the box because I have two rolls of washi, both of which are almost out.
See if you can figure out where I used washi tape on my card:
If you guessed on the “thanks” sentiment die, you guessed correctly. Here’s the washi tape I used:
A Basic Card with a Thankful Message:
I finally ordered the Amazing Thanks die set and decided it would work for this card.
- I started by layering stripes of the washi tape on a piece of scrap white cardstock. Since the rows of dots are spaced out, I placed the silver tape so that each stripe would allow some of the polka dots to show.
- Then, I cropped out four more “thanks” pieces so I could layer them for a 3D effect. I did this mainly because I didn’t want to deal with dimensionals or the foam adhesive sheets when I was working on the card. The resulting sentiment turned out just like the picture I had of it in my head.
- The Just Jade base of the card measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches to form a tent card.
- After running a piece of the Bumblee cardstock through the cut and emboss machine using the Subtles embossing folder, I trimmed it to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
- Next, I cropped out the center using a stitched rectangle die to use as a mat for the sentiment. I used Bumblebee ink and the Artfully Layered stamp set to add the leaves to the cardstock mat.
- The Artfully Layered DSP (designer series paper) measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. I outlined it using a black Stamping Write Marker to make it pop off the Bumblebee layer. I also trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
- Then, I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade chevron ribbon around the DSP and tied it on the right in a bow. I used a mini-glue dot to secure the bow to the DSP.
- I already had the palm frond cropped and added it under the raised sentiment.
- The sentiment mat is the only thing on dimensionals for this card. I put them there to accommodate the ribbon. My favorite adhesive, the multipurpose liquid adhesive, adhered everything else.
- After I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap and made the envelope seal, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.
