It's no secret that I'm a bit of a Washi Tape enthusiast (I don't think it counts as "hoarding" if you USE them, right?!) and one of my favorite tricks for making a bold sentiment is to combine a few coordinating tapes, the diecut or hand cut my title from the resulting decorative border. In this case I'm rockin' the Red, White and Blue Stripe with Nautical Tape and Skinny Stars tape, though I confess I had difficulty choosing when I also had Blue Stars, Cruise Tape and Hearts; I've traced some oversized chipboard letters to form the word "Ahoy" and then mounted them on foam tape on my card so they'd stand out even more.
A bold red panel on a field of white makes everything pop, don't you think? And how adorable are those Red White and Blue Anchor Brads?! I'm definitely ready to sail off into summer now, and I hope you are, too!
loooooooooooooves summer time almost as much as she loves Washi Tape!
(Which is a really, really, lot!!!)
Lauren, I'm definitely on board with this card. I just love the vibrant colors. I know...so many great choices of washi, but you couldn't have picked a more perfect combination! And the anchors...a perfect finishing touch. I'm ready to set sail!ReplyDelete
