Washi Tape Birthday

Hello Everyone!

So sorry for not posting on Monday. It was a busy weekend for baseball and then of course, there was Mother's Day and my daughter has been sick the last couple of days and well....you know...life has just been happening. I wanted to make sure I got something up for today's post to share with you, though.
Before I tell you about today's card, however, I must ask for forgiveness for this photo. I took it in a hurry this morning and boy oh boy...not my best work for sure! It's all lopsided for one thing. So sorry about that!


For today's card I decided to just create something super simple by making a background using washi tape. Normally, I use my washi tape in my Erin Condren planner and not very often on cards; but I decided to take advantage of the wide variety I have in order to make a quick card. I started with an X in the middle and then just added strips in alternating fashion until I had the whole piece of card stock covered. The background piece I started with was just a piece of white card stock cut to 5 1/4 x 4 when I finished the washi tape background, I adhered it to a Kraft card base cut to standard card size with a side fold. I decided to keep the rest of the card simple as well, and added the two flowers to the center with a pastel green brad (You can seen where I tried to cover a small hole in the flower with some white paint; but that didn't work out very well...🙄) Finally I added just a simple Birthday sentiment from Altenew underneath it.
That is it for today. Thank you for visiting with me and I will try my best to get back with another
post on Friday! Until then, have a great day!
