Happy Birthday! ( washi tape edition)

Hello, friends!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!!  I'll be completely honest and say that mine is so far not bad - but I haven't done too much today.  I got up on some of my TV shows this morning, and this afternoon, I'm in my craft room wanting to be creative with my plethora of supplies :)

I wanted to pop in today to share this birthday card I just finished up!

Like a lot of us crafters - we have a pretty good selection of that stuff called washi tape!  I have plenty to use and don't any more to add to what I have - so I wanted to pick a few random patterns and colors that went well together - as you can see I came up with a teal, black silver combo. I recently bought some glitter washi tape from Freckled Fawn, and wanted to use it on this card!  In fact, it was the one roll I grabbed and added on from there.  So- I created my washi panel, and then I die cut two frames - one from Mama Elephant's Femme Frames, and the other from Simon Says Stamp Postage Edge Frame Dies.

I used "an oldy but goody" stamp set from The Stamps of Life called standup4sentiments. I love this set - simply because its different, and you need sentiments that stamp in this orientation. I stamped and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I adhered everything together, and placed it on my Coastal Cabana card base.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!! I plan on being back tomorrow with a card tutorial!  I am going to try and make card tutorials for you every Sunday!  We will see how that works out!  Stay tuned!!
