This week's CREATE Blog challenge is to use washi tape in the card/project. I made a card for the same challenge before (see birthday card), but this time I decided to make a Christmas card with the same washi tape. Well, I have just 4 rolls of Washi tape, so it's not a lot of choices. BUT I am thankful for these precious Japanese Washi tapes. They were brought back by my daughter Stephanie while she had a summer exchange study in Singapore in 2010.
I created two ribbon banners with the Washi Tape. The top strip of Washi tape has bow design and it seems perfect for this card, too! The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the cute images are from Lawn Fawn. I colored the present and bear with color pencils and blended the colors with mineral spirit.
Have you checked out the birthday party event in my blog yet? Hope you can join the celebration. I am counting down the days to my birthday...can't believe that I am turning 50!!I feel like sharing a fun photo that my kids made for me on Mother's Day in 2008.
