Jeanne here today! I hope you’re doing great and enjoying the Summer weather! Today I’m playing with washi from the store! Maybe you’re like me.. I just can’t resist stocking up on washi tape. It’s easy to do when I find my favorite brand – MT from Japan in the store! But sometimes I’m not so good at using the washi.. I find myself holding on to it for the perfect project.
I had lots of fun mixing and matching washi patterns to make this pretty card for today! You can see all the pretty washi patterns in the store here!
I started by covering a panel of white card stock with washi tape. I arranged them like the colors of the rainbow.. starting with pinks and red at the top and ending with blues and purples at the bottom of the panel.
Next I die cut two of the Sparkler Butterfly Layer B from the panel. I layered the die cut panel over a piece of gold glitter paper and then inserted pink die cut butterflies inside the die cut openings.
The Celebrate Sugar Script makes the perfect sentiment. I cut it three times from white card stock and adhered the cuts together to make one thick die cut. Washi has a slippery smooth finish – to adhere the die cut “Celebrate” I used glue dots. If you use liquid glue the sentiment will slip around before it’s completely adhered.
Those left over die cut butterflies were too pretty to discard. Here’s what I did with them!
I die cut the solid Sparkler Butterfly Layer D from gold glitter paper and adhered the washi die cut Sparkler Butterfly Layer B over it. I embellished the butterfly with gold twine and a button before adhering it to a wood stick.
What an easy way to make the ordinary extra ordinary! Have a beautiful day!
