Best Friends

Hello! Happy July Fourth! Kathy Martin here with you today to share a funky Love My Tapes card. If I had been thinking ahead of time, I would have created something a little more patriotic. Instead, I was in the frame of mind to do something a little different. What do you think?

To create this design, I added a strip of  black/gray stripe washi tape (in stores soon) to my card base and used it as a guide to pencil in the diagonal lines. Once the lines where in place I was able to line up a second piece of tape.

Before I erased the pencil lines, I used an awl to pierce holes for hand stitching. You could use a sewing machine too. So what do you think? Funky? Fun? Do you like it? I hope it sparks some ideas for new ways to use washi tape! And I hope you have a little time to escape to your crafty space and play!

Kathy :)
