Congratulations Washi

Happy Thursday!  How many of you watch Scandal?  I was NOT going to watch this show.  In fact, when it came out, I didn’t.  Then I was looking for something to watch on Netflix after their first (short) season.  I think there were 7 episodes or something like that.  I remember reaching the last episode and frantically searching for an answer to when Netflix would get the remaining shows.  LOL!  I was completely hooked.  Then, my husband saw part of it and he was hooked.  We actually watch it live and DVR it so that I can watch it a second time.  I also follow along with the stars on Twitter, which is a riot.  So I definitely look forward to Thursday TV, but I think it is almost done for the season.  BOOOO!

Today I have the last of the cards I made for consignment.  I needed one last card that was quick and easy to put together.  I had almost maxed out my MOJO!  Washi tape to the rescue!

Just like Scandal, washi tape was something I wasn’t going to do.  I wasn’t going to start a collection of these cute (and sometimes expensive) rolls of tape.  I wasn’t going to do it….. Then I bought some for my daughter’s birthday party and the collection began.  And it sat on my desk, oft neglected.  After an IKEA trip the other week to get a few things for my space and some reorganization, they found a home in a bucket next to my desk.  I can say they came in handy, big time!  This was a less than 10 minute card.  I alternated my black & green patterned washi, stamped a nice big greeting from MFT, added a few rhinestones and voila!  LOVE it — love the pop of the green and black together.

  1. Love this card, and you just inspired me to make some kind of card with Washi, I don't use it very often but I do like it. Great use of it on this card.

  3. Love the washi tape background especially placed on the diagonal. The patterns and colour combo are so attractive next to the black. The large sentiment finishes the card beautifully. Thanks for joining our No Designer Paper challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
