Happy Birthday - Double Trouble Challenge #53 - USING ALL WASHI TAPE

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #53 "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing" using Twisted Sister's optional twist "bits and pieces of design paper, and/or washi tape for backgrounds".  Wow, my chance to use some of my washi tape that gets forgotten... so off to my washi tape storage.  Double Dare asks for you to make a card that would fit the requirement of a previous partner and I chose Crafting Happiness "Anything Goes".    

My first attempt was to cover the whole background with the washi tape, but remembered I had seen a card that one of our entrants did whereby she covered her cardstock with washi tape and then die cut a frame.  So, I pulled out a dragonfly die and used my washi tape background.  Well, now I had to look for something for my background and I couldn't find a  nice match to the washi tape dragonfly.  I gave up and thought why not use the same washi tape and border both sides of the card base.  Still needed something so found a narrow washi tape and added to each side and placed my dragonfly in the middle.  

On smaller white cardstock I put the other washi tape so that I could cut out a Happy Birthday sentiment. Added a gold gem to the center of the flower and scattered a few smaller gems on the front of the card. 

I found the nice thing about using washi tape on your card base to create a background you didn't require adhesive tape or glue to adhere it...this turned out to be a pretty easy card once I decided what I was going to do with it.

Join us at National Goof Off Day and National Chip and Dip Day. We thought this would be a good time to Goof Off since many of us are staying at home and looking for things to do. If you have children at home maybe they would like to join, too."

Grab your favorite Chip Snacks or two... this can be potato chips, corn chips, tortilla chips, crackers, pretzels, etc. The dip is any type that goes with the chip of your choice. While you're enjoying your Chips... Look for Chip Shapes that resemble something else, or make something unique out of your snacks. But don't eat your findings until you take a photo or two and enter your Chip Shape HERE.

Great use of the washi tape - love that you used it to cut out the butterfly as it is a perfect match to the sides of the card! That chip-hamster... well, for some things, there truly are no words :)

Beautiful card. The design and papers are so pretty. Cutting out the die cut with pattern paper was a perfect idea. Thank you so much for playing along in our Crafting Happiness Challenge this week. Hope you’ll link up again!
Hugs! Janis
