Masculine Make Monday: Striped Washi Cards

Hi Crafty folks Ms.Rabbit here,

I hope that you are doing well and in the UK, enjoying the bank holiday!

Now before I start I have a very special mention to make; Cobs, from the Cobweborium Emporium Blog, has been very kind and created me my very own signature Gif!! In fact she created a few and if you would like to see which one I chose it is included, for the first time at the end of this post!  🙂

Now Cobs, I hope that I have both saved and inserted it correctly – if not please let me know lol! Thanks again Lovely Lady!!

So to the project! Todays share includes making my own patterned paper using washi tape. I chose to use narrow tape in a variety of colours to make a bright yet simple design:

 

I used two, smooth white A6 card panels to make the colours pop – I added the washi tape on one panel horizontally and the other on a diagonal slant for variety.

I had planned to only make Two cards, that is, one A6 striped panel per card. Once I had the completed washi panels though I decided to make four A6 cards so I could get as many fun backgrounds as possible!

As I wanted the panels to be the main focus, I kept the card bases themselves fairly simple. I made two white, textured A6 card bases and two navy blue, smooth A6 card bases. The White card is 320gsm card from The Range, (UK), and the Navy card is from Stampin’ Up!.

I already had a picture in my mind of the sentiment being a raised die cut – as I was looking for the right card to use I happened upon some glitter fun-foam!! Perfect! I picked Silver Mirri card for the Navy cards and a zesty green, glitter fun-foam for the White cards:

For the finishing touches I added some colourful, flat sequins plus a banner strip to complete the sentiments. The sentiments have been heat embossed in White.

I decorated the card interiors and the envelopes using a ‘spotty’ stamp and matching ink colours:

 

Thank you so much for popping over, more photos are included at the end of this post 🙂

Take care and Happy Crafting!!

  1. Hello Ms. Rabbit.
    Love the cards. I never seem to use my washi tape for anything but … holding dies in place. [sigh] I know. Wasted! I must try to use it in some cards, because some of the tapes I have are really pretty. I shall do it. You’ve inspired me.

    The signature … hmm.. something in the resizing hasn’t worked there, has it. It’s broken up and almost pixelated.

    I’ll send you a different one, (same sig.) but I’ll re-size it for around the size you’ve got here, and I’ll make it a Jpeg. Let’s see if WordPress likes it better.

    It could be that the lines of the signature are very delicate, so it’s trying to capture information in, what is, for the sig, the wrong way.

    I’ll email you another one. If you’d like to … Edit this post, and replace the signature with the new one I’m sending you … then click to ‘update’ the post, and you can then view it in real time/real post and check out if it’s working better. I’ll do it today Jenni.
    Love ~ Cobs. x
