Today's card combines a lot of really fun elements, including Stampin' Up!'s new Washi sheets. You may have heard of Washi tape -- rolls of fun, colorful adhesive tapes that add cool accents to projects. This Washi comes in 6 x 12 sheets. You receive eights sheets -- two each of four designs that include the coordinating colors of Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. I used circle punches of varying sizes to create the background for this birthday card. I punched the sheet, peeled off the backing, and adhered it to the Whisper White card stock. So fun, so easy and so cute!
The featured stamp is from the Big Day set. Earn it FREE during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31) with any $50 order (before tax and shipping). I stamped the image with Black Stazon and used the Blender Pens to color the word "cake" with Bermuda Bay ink. I then cut the image with the Banners Dies. You may be wondering how the white piece nests so closely with the Calypso Coral piece. I traced the outside of the banner die onto the Calypso Coral piece and hand cut it. I didn't want to use the larger banner because it would take away from the fun background I just created with the Washi sheets.
The other fun product used here is the Bow Builder Punch. I punched this using the Best Day Ever Designer Series Paper, also available as a free selection during Sale-A-Bration.
Wow! I think that's it! I'm sure whomever receives this card in the mail will love it!
