Quick Cards Using Washi Tape

Looking for a quick and simple card design? I've got one here for you today that lets Washi Tape do all the hard work. Don't have Washi Tape or want a new design or two? We have hundreds of designs to choose from at our STORE. You're sure to find designs that you'd love to own.

I made four cards with the same design but with four different Washi Tape designs. From left to right, I used:
Bee Washi Tape and a Blue Glitter Enamel Dot
Copper Sparkle Foil Tape and a White Glitter Enamel Dot
Book Washi Tape and a Red Glitter Enamel Dot and
Map Washi Tape and a Blue Enamel Dot.

This is a great way to personalize a card for the recipient's hobbies or interests. It can instantly make a card feminine, masculine, whimsical, serious, juvenile or adult. Best of all, it's a quick but great card you can make when time is tight.

Here's a close-up of the bee card.

Let's take a peak inside the map card to show how I put another piece of white card stock inside with a strip of matching Washi Tape at the bottom. I sometimes also put a brad in the inside to accent the Washi Tape like here where I used the Anchor Brad in antique bronze. There are two other finished in this charming pack including shiny silver and pewter.

I like using Washi Tape on envelopes because it ties the whole look together and makes a great presentation when it's delivered to the recipient. I put it on the closer flap of each envelope and turn the excess Washi Tape to the back of it.
