Washi + Words Christmas Cards

After creating the gift tag inspired by Jennifer's Refresh Your Craft & Soul event this past weekend, I didn't have much time to create. However I did read and enjoy all the blog posts over the weekend and knew I had to try the Washi +Words cards she shared. I had so much FUN putting these cards together!

My favorite design uses washi tape adhered on a diagonal.



I also tried a simple card with just a few strips of washi tape along the bottom, a chipboard tab & a stamped Hello. After I adhered the card front on, this one didn't look finished to me, so I grabbed my red pen and added some faux stitching. What do you think? Did that finish it off?


For these last three cards, I used chipboard pieces rather than words.



Did you get a chance to join in with Jennifer's event? Which items did you find most inspiring?

Despite good intentions, I never made it to Jennifer's blog! These great cards remind me to remember my large Washi tape collection when I'm creating.

Yes, I love faux stitching.

I don't think I have any Christmas themed washi. Doesn't it make lovely cards? I'll have to look out for some

These look fabulous! The diagonal ones are really striking, I love the red and gold one. I think the red faux-stitching did finish off that card nicely - I'd add a few gems too but that's just me! Thank you so much for joining in the challenge at Jennifer Grace Creates! x

I like the diagonal cards and using washi to make backgrounds is so fun. Nope, didn't make it to Jennifer's was rather busy last weekend :)
