Washi Tape Birthday cards

Over at Moxie Fab World, Cath is celebrating the publication of PaperCraft's newest release, Birthday Creations.  One of her challenges this week is simply to make some birthday cards.  That works for me, as I have to make some for my Mom and 2 of my sisters in August.  Thank you, Cath, for getting me in gear early!

I decided to use washi tapes on these 2 for my sisters:

MFW Birthday Card Challenge

supplies: yellow and black washis, Hero Arts Be Happy and Card Messages, BoBunny double dots papers

Birthday card with washi tape

supplies: floral and dotted washis (Michael's and Martha), Hero Arts Sending Smiles Messages, Penny Black's new "flutters" dies, pink and green pearls

  1. These are so summery and sweet, Lin. Your sisters are going to love 'em. I have a friend who raises bees, so I may have to use the one one as a special inspiration. I am, however, not a tape gal.....I bought and tried, but can't seem to get it. I do like the controlled way in which you have used it - masterfully! Thanks for sharing.

  2. love both the cards - and agree with maureen on the tape thing - can't seem to make myself tear the tape and put it on a card - so glad to see cards with cut ends - if that makes sense.
