Cards with Washi - Love My Tapes!

Hello blogging friends! It's so hard to go back to work after a wonderful 3 day weekend. We attended a Memorial Service yesterday in the cemetery in my home town Rockford MN. Its a small town and not much has changed in the last 30 years since we left. The Rockford High School marching band still plays at the ceremony. The weather was fabulous and the memories even better.

I have a couple of cards to share with you featuring Love My Tapes washi tape. I couldn't help but make a patriotic card for Memorial Day when I saw this blue starred washi tape. It will be great for those 4th of July projects too.

I few strips here and there on the background really jazzed up this card.

I am also starting to think ahead to Father's Day so I made a card for my Dad. He loves to play cards (Euchre and 500 are his games) and a few of the black washi tapes worked wonders to create a background for me. One of these tapes has hearts on it and the other one has crowns. I alternated them on a piece of white cardstock. I then used my Silhouette to cut this diamond overlay from another sheet of cardstock and adhered that over the top of my washi. Trim off the excess on the edges.

Here is how my card turned out ...

I love the look of the washi in the negative space on the background!

Thanks for stopping by.
