Hello there! Washi tapes have found its way into our cardmaking world not too long ago and it is not hard to see projects using them. Usually, washi tapes are small sized embellishments but Altenew has brought some perfectly sized washi tapes for cardmakers!
Last year Altenew showcased wide washi tapes that everyone loved and today they released brand-new washi tapes – lots of different sizes that everyone will enjoy! So today I am going to share two different cards you can create using these tapes along with other supplies to jazz up your projects.
Let’s start with the step-by-step video tutorial on how you can create these cards easily.
I really love how the 1st card turned out. It is simple and so much fun to create. And a great way to add lots of dimensions and depths on projects.
I created watercolor backgrounds using some water-based dye inks – Cool Summer Night mini cube set – with easy smooshing technique. The Galaxy washi tape was used to create a focal point along with the alphabet die set.
The 2nd card was created with even more easier way – just using the whole washi tape as a background.
I wanted to add a texture so ran the whole card front panel using a big die and dry embossed it using a die cutting machine. This Glitter Flurries washi tape is filled with lovely floral designs and gold foil accents which is so elegant and pretty.
For sentiment, I added simple Thank You greeting on a vellum cardstock and heat set it with a clear embossing powder.
Washi tapes are a great way to add a different flair to your projects – tell me, which of the new washi tapes are your favorites?
