Catered Crop--Washi's Up, Doc?


Catered Crop's latest recipe ingredient is washi tape and I couldn't resist playing along. 
After gathering my (partial) collection of washi tape for a photo shoot, I made this quick card.


I folded several strips of washi tape over some twine and trimmed them to form pennants. 
I love the transparency of washi tape and how the different widths and patterns 
make for a fun banner.



I wanted to punch out a heart on one of the flags, but the punch kept getting stuck. Plan B was to tape some pink washi tape on a piece of cardstock, punch out the heart and adhere it to the flag. Much better. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.







If you have a stash of washi tape, give the challenge a go. The prize sponsor is Chickydoddle 
and you could win a gift certificate to her Etsy store...and buy more washi tape!

  28. Your cards are so beautiful. Using washi tape (wow such thing exist? I dind't know that) for the card is very cute idea! If I ever received your card by someone, I think it means so much that I will frame for decoration! :D I should visit you more often. :-)
