WASHI TAPE VALENTINE'S DAY CARD

Day 2 of Valentine's week at SAS does. If you've enjoyed yesterday's easy embroidered card you will definitely have fun making today's washi tape card.


The top photo shows what you will need for this project: the card base (similar to the one I've made for the embroidered card), a square of thinner contrast coloured paper, a heart template, and several rolls of washi tape.  If you do not have any washi tape you can use strips of thin patterned paper (wrapping paper or even recycled magazine pages would work great).


First, you will need to make the base for the card.  I've used 9''x12" sheet of heavy-weight textured card stock to make four 9x3 strips.   Folded in two each strip made a cute 4,5x3 card base.

Next, use thinner paper of a contrasting colour  to cut out a 4"x2,5" square.

Make a heart template and trace it onto the thin, contrast-coloured paper.  Cut the heart shape out (you can keep it for another project) to create a heart-shaped "window".

Next, lightly trace the heart onto the card base.  Glue strips of washi tape onto the card base.  Make sure to erase pencil lines since they might be visible through the washi tape.


Final step - glue the heart "window" onto the card base. Your washi-tape Valentine is ready!

Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to pin or share the tutorial.
