Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique for you today….or in this case, it is kind of like a hack! Adding a foil border to your project with the Year of Cheer Designer Washi Tape is simple, less layers than adding foil paper, and more cost effective!!! Woot Woot!
Isn’t this card just stunning and perfect for any Fall occasion?!?!? It was super simple using the Washi Tape rather than cutting a large piece of Foil Paper to cover up most and just allow the border!
I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took a piece of Always Artichoke (5-1/2″ x 2″) and placed it on my card front. You can go ahead and adhere it down and place the Washi Tape next to it or simple place it there as a guide and then add it later. Add a strip of the Copper Washi Tape from the Year of Cheer Washi Tape Pack on the top and bottom. Then you can add the strip of green if you haven’t already.
For the leaves, I stamped 2 of them on Very Vanilla squares measuring 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. I used Cajun Craze Ink and Cherry Cobbler Ink. Be sure to stamp off once on the solid image and then go full strength on the outline image. The center leaf was die cut with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Framelits from Copper Foil Paper. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere it. When placing the squares onto the card front, I started with the outside ones making them flush with the edge of the card. Then I added the center one. To finish off the card, I added the greeting at the bottom in Early Espresso Ink!

I cannot find the year of cheer washi tape in either catalog. Where is it? I must be blind. LOL! Thank you!
That was in last year’s Holiday Mini Catalog. It is no longer available. There are some Holiday Washi Tapes available this year. You can check them out here: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/11403/designer-washi-tape?dbwsdemoid=82500 ~Laura
