Today's card is for the fun washi tape challenge over at The Paper Players. I immediately went to town and decided to work with one my my favorite washi tape collections, Retro Fresh. I just love the colors. It reminds me of Spring!
I started out with coastal cabana as my card base. I added a background layer of baked brown sugar and very vanilla. I then just tore strips of washi tape and layered them down on top of the vanilla at different angles. I cut out a film shape from the on film framelit set and added it as my final top layer using foam dots. The final touches came in with white leaves from the secret garden framelit set and a coastal cabana stamped flower from the flower shop set. I did add a strip of ruffled baked brown sugar ribbon along the bottom edge and a boutique button to the center of my flower.
As always, I can't forget the inside. Remember, its just as important as the outside. I kept it along the same lines as the outside, only using the smallest film frame. I made my leaf and flower a little smaller but just cutting some off. I always try to leave plenty of room for a handwritten message.
