Washi Winter Wonderland

Merry Little Labels Washi Card

Washi Winter Wonderland

The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog.  I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.  Paired up with the Merry Little Labels Bundle, which includes the stamp set and matching punch, the little sentiment makes a wonderful winter card.

Most people really don’t know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making.  It is a simple way to add pattern and color.  But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?

The result is a die cut with a thicker texture and some fun color to boot! Try it out! I set my washi snowflakes on a background of more washi tape as well as stamped snowflakes and rhinestones.

These fun colors were pul right from the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape in the Stampin’ UP annual catalog.  It had a lot of great patterns and they reminded me of winter time.

Washi Tape is really a great buy too.  It is $8 for this pack of 5 different designs.  If you would like to try out the technique but don’t want to spend even that much, check out the Clearance Rack.  Currently, Stampin’ Up has a few different 5 packs of washi tape for $3.20 each!

Washi Wonder

It was fun creating a lot of texture with this card.  I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder for the backdrop in whisper white.  After cutting my large circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Oh My Stars embossing folder for even more texture.

Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog.  It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal.  I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the “50” element.  I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch.  I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!
