I love this new wide Washi Floral Washi Tape ... the wider tape makes it much easier to cover the front of a card ... and the transparency of this tape allows it to have lots of different looks depending on your background paper.
This is how it looks on a darker blue cardstock. I added a lovely row of black pearls to accent my sentiment.
This is the same tape on light blue cardstock. One trick when you cover cards with washi tape is to burnish it with a bone folder to allow the background color to show through as much as possible.
As I hunted through my stash, there were quite a few things I shook my head at, but the biggest WHY was this large skull & crossbones punch. It weighs a ton, takes up space, and seriously ... what do you make with it? (If you'd like one, you can find it here).
I decided a snarky birthday card was in order. I punched the skulls from Pink Glitter paper for a bit of deathly pizzazz.
I also love my Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-Namics (with double stitches, so you can use either cut piece ... or both). I did some shopping in my flower stash to add a bit of embellishment, but it's still flat enough to be mailable.
