Are you like me and after you’ve taken a little bit of time off from getting into your craft room, you return to sit and stare at your supplies thinking, “I really want to make something cute, but have NO IDEA what to make or where to get started!”
I swear, getting my groove back on can be the hardest thing for me in crafting. Well, today, I wanted to share with you a project idea that is quick, easy, and is a great way to get over that missing mojo hump and get your crafting groove on. The always fun, washi peek-a-boo card!
When you do a card like this, start with your basic white card base and then grab your favorite set of washi tape. In this case, I grabbed the Pop of Pink Washi Tape pack. It has 5 coordinating patterns, but since they all go together, you can just pick your favorite 3 patterns and lay them out on a white layer of cardstock. See… super easy so far!
Then it is just a matter of creating a fun layer with a cutout for that pattern to peek out through!
In this case, I grabbed the Layering Square framelits and the Elegant Butterfly punch to create my accent piece. I picked out a square from the Layering Squares dies that was just a little bit bigger than my punch and then using that selected a matching scalloped square that would give me a reasonable sized border. Then it was as simple as cutting out a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the square and a Gold Foil piece with the scallop square and glue them together. Then I could punch out the butterfly from the center. Fun, huh?
Once you have that, just place over your washi tape with the foam Stampin’ Dimensionals, and add a sentiment (from one of my favorite sentiment sets – Suite Sayings) in the corner. Then you can just mount it all onto your white cardbase and you are done!
And just like that, you’ve made something cute and you are ready to keep the momentum going onto your next project!
