Hello Crafty friends:)  Today I am going outside my comfort zone and using Washi Tape, thru the years I have collected a basket full and decided to make 3 pretty cards with it:)  I think I did my Washi Tape justice by putting it on a card instead of on my card stock with a die to run it through my big shot:)  I hope this gives you an idea and inspiration on using your washi tape!  The tutorial on how I made these 3 cards is below and also on my YouTube Channel Just Click Here.  I hope you have a beautiful day!
