yesterday was the last day of school - a very hectic last day followed by an equally hectic first day of vacation! but i still have a few cards waiting in the wings, so i'll step it up and share two. the first, a wreath created out of cardstock punched with two circles, then wrapped with green baker's twine. a silver grid washi tape gives the feel of a window behind it, while the red star washi makes a perfect bow, complete with a little bling to finish it off.
and second, a bold red and green peace card. a couple of strips of gold polka dot washi create the illusion of a larger tape behind the red on red strip. the tape patterns add a soft visual interest to the bold red and green, allowing the flowers to really pop. and we can't forget the glitter - everything's better with a little sparkle and shine!
