Wonderful News

The challenge at LIM this week is to use washi - how lucky for me that yesterday I tried CASEing a card I saw on Etsy which used a single wooden button on a small notecard.  I didn't use a wooden button, but a die I've had for ages, with WASHI on cardstock - - woo hoo!

So I'm ready early today - Sunday morning here in Australia, with temps in the 30s!


Cardstock cut 18cm x 9cm for a top fold 9 x 9cm (3.5" x 3.5")
Stamp is a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft Issue 165 - love the fonts
Die is by Simon Says Stamp - Partial Cut Flowers
Button die is a set of 3 by Joy! Crafts
Washi - unknown origin but printed cloth tape about 1.5 inches wide

Below are a couple more cards I made using washi.

  7. What a brilliant idea to use the washi tape as buttons Ann. Those tiny patterns look so good on the button shape. Your first card is elegance personified and the other cards show the variety of this idea. Great work! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
