Washi and Words Bright and Fresh Cards

(This post is part of my Refresh Your Craft & Soul Blog Event – see the beginning HERE!)

This hour I’ve got some bright and fresh cards to share with you:

I decided to keep things simple for this set of cards, which are to send to people who need their day brightening!

To keep it clean and simple I used just Washi + Words.

Here’s how it went…

1. I picked three card blanks:

2. I cut three pieces of white cardstock to fit the card blanks:

3. I stuck washi all over them:

It was that easy! The card on the left was the simplest, I just stuck the washi in lines straight across. The card bottom right was a little more fiddly, but only really the first bit which I put across the diagonal line from top left to bottom right. After that it was easy to follow with the other washi strips. For the card on the top right I cut the washi into banner flags…

You fold the washi in half, making sure you fold it so the sticky bit is on the outside:

Then snip from the outer corner into the middle:

Or from the middle at a diagonal angle towards the outer edge:

Depending on which shape you want the flag to be!

Then all I had to do was stick the cardstock onto the card blanks, and choose a few words to stick on top:

Hey presto!

  5. Another great way to use washi! I’ve been creating washi+three cards lately where I add a couple of strips of washi along the top & bottom of the card front, then line up three similar embellishment across the middle of the card and stamp a sentiment underneath them.

  6. I can’t believe I have yet to buy ANY washi tape. It seems like such a versatile and long lasting product that produces beautiful results. I need to get my butt in gear and get some!

    I’ve always cut the triangle into the tape. I’ve never tried making a point. Hmmm…. the endless possibilities
