What You’ll Need to Create This Card:
- Season’s Greetings Paper Pack
- Season’s Greetings Embellishments
- Red & White Washi Tape
- Embossed Bow Punch
- 12×12 White Solid Cardstock or Blank Card Kit
- Black Dual-Tip Pen
- 12-inch Trimmer
- Tape Runner
- Foam Squares
Step 1: Use the 12-inch Trimmer to cut a piece of White Cardstock to measure 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Then, fold in half to create your card base. Or simply use a card base from the Blank Card Kit!
Step 2: Cut a piece of the green patterned paper to measure 4″ x 5.25″.
Step 3: Layer the washi tape on the green piece of paper like a present. We used two pieces of the striped washi and two pieces of the retro-geometric washi. Fold the excess tape behind the green piece of paper. Then, adhere the green piece to the centre of the card base.
Step 4: Punch a bow using the Embossed Bow Punch and the white patterned paper. Adhere to the card using Foam Squares.
Step 5: Adhere a tag embellishment to the card and add your greeting with a Black Dual-Tip Pen.
Step 6: Add washi tape to the outside of the envelope for extra fun!
When it comes to giving gifts, it’s the thought that counts, and giving your loved ones a homemade card is one of the most thoughtful things you can do. With the help of the Season’s Greetings collection, you can create stunning cards with scrapbooking washi tape that will make the recipients shine with gratitude.
