Washi Tape (Technique Blog Hop)

Showing different ways to use Washi Tape is the focus this month for the Technique Blog Hop.    

If you arrived from Shirley's "Mom 'n Me Scrap" blog, then follow along with the link at the bottom of this post to continue the Technique Blog Hop

Gold and silver is the theme for this card.  The balloons were created by placing strips of both gold and Slate polka-dot Washi Tape on a piece of White Daisy cardstock, and then cutting them with the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  Making unique papers to cut Circuit shapes is a fun way to use different colors and patterns of Washi Tape.  The balloon string image is included in the Artiste Collection Birthday stamp set.  To add another circle design to the card, some Whisper cardstock was embossed using the new Dot Embossing Folder from CTMH.   For some sparkle, silver Glitter Paper is used behind the balloon images and a strip of gold Shimmer Trim is layered above the gold polka-dot Washi Tape. 

Another example of this technique is a butterfly card shared in my Create & Share ~ Shapes with Washi Tape post.
