I love how this Stampin’ Up Butterfly and Washi Tape Card came together.
I have a confession to make. Can you believe that this is the first time I’ve used Washi Tape? Yeah….I know you’re shocked!
The challenge this week at Loves Rubberstamps is to use Washi Tape, so I figured this was the perfect time to give it a try! I saw a sketch on Paper Smooches that uses it, and it gave me a jump start with an idea.
First thing I had to do was find some washi tape. I only have a few rolls, and it was all Christmas. Fortunately, my Mom is a Stampin’ Up rep, and she had Stampin’ Up Washi Tape. Of course, she had cardstock to match, so I was set!
How I Made this Washi Tape Card
The base for this card is light blue, but you can’t tell in the picture. I added a rectangle of Calypso Coral and punched the bottom edge with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. Then I added the washi tape, and stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede.
I stamped the houndstooth butterfly on off white paper and punched it with a Stampin’ Up Butterfly punch. I attached it used one glue dot in the center of the body so that I could fold the wings up slightly. I added copper colored adhesive pearls to the butterfly’s body for a little extra pizazz.
I can see that washi tape could be totally addictive! I might have to get some more.
