Holiday Washi Card

I am a Pinterest junkie.  I get to do it in the morning when Callie watches Mickey and Doc and I get to wind down in the evening with it when the house is finally quiet and I need some "me" time before going to sleep!  It's not just about checking out what other crafters, family, and friends are pinning, but also pinning myself from my favorite blogs so that I can keep all those ideas in one place!  I have a set time on Sundays where I visit all my blogs that I follow (and it's about 40) and post projects that inspire me or I think my customers would like!  I haven't found a great organization system yet for all my stamp samples but I'm trying to make sure I put in some keywords of the stamp sets or products just to make searching my own inventory easier!

With a toddler and another baby on the way, anything I can do to help me find inspiration that I can quickly convert into my own rendition (or sometimes just directly steal) is a blessing.  Today's card that is featured in my holiday camp is no exception.  I'd come up with the idea of the washi tape on a box to be a package by myself but couldn't figure out the best way to mount it on a card.  Then I came across this wonderful card from Sandy Mathis during one of my pin-a-thons!  She has a blog full of great ideas if you haven't visited her before!

I loved that she kept the card white on white. It really makes the tape pop out on the card.  I didn't use the embossing folder on mine - I wanted to keep it really quick.  I also changed out the ribbon since I like making bows out of the 1/8 taffeta.

  • Cardstock/DSP: Whisper White
  • Ink: Old Olive
  • Stamp Set: Many Merry Messages
  • Accessories: Seasons of Style Washi Tape, Old Olive 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Scissors, and Adhesive
This card is one of my stamp-a-stacks for the holiday.  Cost is $15 for 10 cards.  You can also just make one at my holiday stamp camp.  View details for that camp here.

Have a craftastic day,
