Washi Glitter Hello

Hi!  I pulled out some glitter and some washi tape and played around with those today. I came up with this fun card to share with you.  I love these two washi tapes and I wanted to find a way to use them together on a card. Since they both have green in them, I thought green glitter could be the unifying element. So I gave it a shot, and this is what happened.

I adhered a strip of the Aqua Antique Floral Washi Tape at a diagonal on white cardstock. Then I laid down a strip of the 1/4" Scor-Tape above and below the Aqua tape. A strip of the Antique Floral Washi Tape (pink and white) was adhered above the Scor-Tape. I then laid down another strip of the 1/4" Scor-Tape above the pink & white washi tape, and then repeated with the Aqua tape and another strip of 1/4" Scor-Tape.

I carefully trimmed off the excess edges of the tapes and then set my piece down on some scratch paper. I peeled the liners off all the Scor-Tape strips, and then I covered them with Peeled Paint Distress Glitter. I used the Glitter Roll technique (6/11 issue) from Technique Junkies to make sure all the glitter was well-adhered, and then I shook off the excess.

I glued this piece down onto a green card base. I used the same green cardstock to cut out the Hello die cut (Cheery Lynn Designs), and then I adhered the "Hello" to the bottom of the glittery background piece. I thought about leaving this card alone at this point, but it just seemed to be screaming for a 3D flower. I cut out the Olive Branches (Cheery Lynn Designs) and glued them down on the left side, and then I cut out the Sweet Williams Strip and used the tiny tweezers from the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to curl up the flower petals. I used a rhinestone brad to adhere the flowers together and then I glued the flower down over the Olive Branches.

I love how the washi tape looks with the glitter in between them. It's so much fun to use glitter and the Scor Tape - so much easier than messing with liquid glue!! :-)  You can order these supplies and much more from Classy Cards 'n Such.  Use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% off your order.
