The Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape gives us a lot to celebrate. My niece was visiting, and she wanted to make invitations for her 8th birthday party. She picked out the washi tape and the coordinating colors, and we started to work on her cards. After using the Big Shot more than a dozen times to die cut “Celebrate”, she became a professional!
To make the invitations, we cut Whisper White Thick card stock in half vertically, for an 11 x 4 1/4 inch card. We scored and folded the card at 5 1/2 inches, then burnished the fold with a bone folder.
We then cut a 5 x 3 3/4 inch piece of Whisper White card stock (not thick), and a layer of 5 1/4 x 4 inch Dapper Denim card stock.
Using the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape, we determined the desired angle on the Whisper White card stock, and cut each of the three pieces a little bit longer than the card (no exact measurement). We used three different patterns of washi, and wrapped the tape around the white layer, then adhered it to the back. Note – you do not need to wrap washi, as it can be cut to the edge of your paper, but we opted for this wrapped look.
Each “Celebrate” was cut from Dapper Denim card stock using the Celebrate You thinlet dies. The word was glued above the top layer of washi tape. Note – you could also stamp an image or a sentiment in place of the die cut.
The top white layer was then glued onto the (blue) Dapper Denim layer, and then onto the folded card. Bling, such as pearls or rhinestones could be added, but we opted not to put anything else on the card, as the washi tape provides lots of sparkle.
For the invitation itself, a note with party information was glued inside the card.
Voila! A really cute card for a young girl – no doubt the envy of party invitations!
The blue (Dapper Denim) and the washi tape will retire on May 31, 2018, but the thinlet dies will carry over to the new catalog.
