christmas continues with a couple more easy last minute cards - make them a little smaller and they'd be perfect for gift tags, too. one of my favorite ways to use washi tape is to add a patterned tape on a strip of the same color card stock for a tone on tone look. above i created a christmas tree doing just that - green on green for the tree, red on red for the pot. for the tree i used temporary tape to line up three small strips on a scrap of card stock and trimmed to shape before placing on my card. any tape pattern would work, but i especially love the dotty tree. and of course, a blingy star on top is a must!
using leftovers from the strips i made to create the tree, i also cut a couple of notched flags to highlight my sentiment focal point here. white and cream is a fresh color scheme i go to when i want neutral with just a little something. i often layer white on white, but with cream, the white can really pop! it's hard to see in the photo, but there are cream swirls behind the letters - one more tone on tone pattern to pull it all together. two more quickie cards tomorrow - and they're even easier!!
ho, ho, ho!
