Washi Tape Background!!!

Thinking of You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am loving the Pop of Pink Suite and this card is just amazing!!! It is fairly simple to create as well since the background is just strips of Washi Tape. It rips with your fingers so no tools necessary. The hardest part was the gold embossed greeting!

I started with a Melon Mambo card base! Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape to create the background. You will want to start in the middle or close to it, not the farthest edge. When you start on the edge it is hard to see a pattern and follow it. For the card above, I started with the black with gold confetti strip (3rd from the bottom). Just place it down at any angle and that is your template. Then you will take another color/pattern and place it above or below at the same angle and spaced as far apart as you wish. Keep working your way out till the entire piece is covered. There are 5 different rolls of washi tape in the pack so you get lots of patterns. You can work with just 1 or 2 or use all of them like mine. For the greeting, I used the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set. I inked it in VersaMark and stamped it onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. I poured some Gold Embossing Powder of the top and set it with the Heat Tool. This heart coordinates with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits but you can also fussy cut it by hand! For the loops, I used Metallic Gold Thread and Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine. I wrapped the thread around 4 fingers (2 loops for pink, lots of loops for gold). Then you will slide the loops off your fingers and then twist into a figure 8 and place on the back of the heart greeting. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, you will place them on top of the ribbon (especially the ends) to hold it down and also adhere this piece to your card. Love it!!!
