Washi Tape Holiday Cards

by on December 24, 2012

I’m a last minute kinda girl. Sending Christmas cards the day before Christmas? That’s me! I don’t mean to be a procrastinator, it’s just that my To-Do List is so long that things often get sidelined until they hit the realm of urgent! Like my holiday cards this year.

Earlier this month I created handmade pop-up cards for a few special people, for the full tutorial visit the link here: DIY Holiday Pop-Up Cards, but they are too time consuming to make for the 40+ people I send cards to every year. I thought about doing my usual photo cards but honestly couldn’t find a set of photos I wanted to use. After snapping a cute picture of the kids with Santa this year I decided to go with a totally handmade card consisting of a rubber-stamped front message and the Santa photo taped inside. When I showed it to my husband he said it needed a little more “oomph” so I went over to Paper Source and bought some Washi tape. Then I went crazy. At first I used a strip or two of tape per card. But then I got a little more, well, elaborate with the designs….You can see the “Before Washi Tape” and “After Washi Tape” versions here:

Needless to say these really didn’t take very long to complete and I was proud to send out a totally handmade card this year.

Enjoy!
