Quick Card Weekend: Washi Tape Background with Big Impact

Quick Card Weekend is a monthly post sharing little tips & tricks and musings about pulling together “Pops of Paper” with limited time.

Hi Friends!! Welcome to the weekend! Today, I’m sharing a quick CAS card using Doodlebug Rainbow Stripe Washi Tape as my background and the big bold sentiment from Essential by Ellen Thank You For Being a Friend stamp set. I absolutely love this block lettering sentiment from Brandi…I find myself humming the Golden Girls theme song each time I work with it 🙂

Quick Card Details & Creative Process

Time: 10 Minutes & 3 Steps

Timesaver: Washi Tape and Bold Sentiment Stamp

  1. Place several diagonal rows of washi tape to your card panel. Meet each row at the seam and try not to overlap the washi tape for a smooth background paper look.

Tip: Just fold your washi ends over your card panel and tear the washi from the roll. No need to pull out your scissors.

  1. Stamp your bold sentiment with black ink on a white card panel and die cut the sentiment using the Essentials Circles Designer Dies. This design die is AMAZING because its a ”two-for” it gets you both a circle sentiment and a perfectly sized thin circle border. To highlight the sentiment with a little extra pop, I colored the thin border with a Copic marker (RV55) that matches the Washi tape.
  2. Adhere your bold circle sentiment to your washi background and you’re all set! Easy Peasy!

So there we are friends, a quick & easy card for those times when you need a little something and you’re short on time. Hope you enjoy and Big Paper Hugs!
