Washi Tape Rudolf

 

Follow along, if you’d like to see how I did it:

First, I found the die I wanted to use in the Dashing Deer die set. Second, I figured the approximate size of the deer on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Third, I pulled out four rolls of Washi Tape from my stash. (There’s beautiful, new Washi tape in the Holiday catalog, which you’ll see in my supply list.) Fourth, I stuck the Washi tape in rows across the white cardstock, alternating the patterns. Fifth, I used the Dashing Deer die with the Big Shot for cutting.

Voila!

 

Why did I think to use Washi Tape in the first place? This week’s challenge at TGIF is a “Product Spotlight” of Washi Tape and Twine.

 

Washi Tape, check. For the twine, I decided to use my favorite, Linen Thread. It came in handy to tie the sentiment,”Happiest Christmas Wishes,” to the corrugated background. 

The sentiment is from the Dashing Deer Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. It’s cut with a label die from the Merry Christmas die set. The holes were made with a Stampin’ Up! hand held punch that was on the Clearance Rack the last time I looked.

 

The background was made by embossing Crumb Cake cardstock with the Corrugated embossing folder. It is layered on Real Red cardstock, which is layered on a Garden Green card base. All three received rounded corners, compliments of the Detailed Trio Punch.

Now, go find some Washi Tape, and have some fun!
