Hello SCT friends! Wendy Sue here today, sharing a card set I created with the fun “Happy Days” collection from My Mind’s Eye! As soon as I saw these fun designs and unique color combination, I knew I wanted to create with it! My first project was this “super-duper” card:

I love using journaling cards on greeting cards, and that’s exactly what I did here! I started with a couple of journaling cards and die-cut them with a faux-stitching rectangle die from Echo Park Paper. I wanted to do something a little different, so instead of using patterned paper, I used the washi tape to create my own “patterned paper” to use on the card.

I simply cut a piece of white cardstock the same width as my card, then added alternating strips of two of the washi tapes. I added some additional coordinating items – stickers, chipboard, brads, etc. – and I love how it turned out! I kind of think it’s super duper cool. 😉

I couldn’t stop at ONE card – so I pulled out some more supplies and put together a second card.

This time I added two washi tape strips horizontally onto a piece of cardstock before adding it to my card front.

I can see so many possibilities with different washi combinations!

You probably guessed that I couldn’t stop at two cards – here’s a quick peek at a few more cards I made with the same collection. I love how versatile washi tape can be…so much more than taping things down (although that’s fun too!)

Thanks for stopping by – have fun creating and be sure to share your washi tape tips in the comments!!
