Red, White, and Black with Washi


My card today is for the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use washi tape, and it's also based on the Freshly Made Sketch #69. Like I usually do for some reason, I flipped the sketch and tweaked it just a tad bit, but that's just how I roll :) I only have 2 rolls of washi tape, so I alternated them on a piece of cardstock, matted it with red, and placed it on an EK bricked punched panel. The buttons were done with a MS punch, and I wove cardstock into the holes and popped them up on dimensionals. The red ric-rac was done with an EK zig-zag punch, and the sentiment is by Hero Arts.

We've been blessed with some sunshine today - so I hope to finally get outdoors and enjoy it a bit while it's there! Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you all a fabulous Friday!

Very nice, Carol, I like how you used the tape, I didn't buy any yet, but you are inspiring me to do so. I like all the details on this card, (especially the buttons, like to see buttons on cards, gives them a "Homey" look...if that's a word...smile) I like your color combo too. Hope you have a nice "sunny" day. Yes, the sun is out, but it's too COLD for me.

Oh Carol, this card is amazing! Love, love, love the color combo and your buttons! Perfectly done and very eye catching! I was looking at it this morning trying to wrap my mind around it! LOL I may give it a try later.
Enjoy the sunshine today! It certainly was nice to see for a change but it sure is cold & blustery out. If you out & about, hang on to your hat! Happy TGIF!
