I admit, we do have this tape because the girls love it soo much, but I also have to admit, I´ve only used it once or twice to cover some edges, that has got a tiny problem he he, but else I haven´t got really into using it, but maybe it´s time to give it a proper try now? This card looks great, and as you say it´s really inexpensive and also easy to use for a fast card, when you´re in a bit of a hurry.
Thanks so much for the tut and have a great day hun.

Washi tape hasn’t made it into my stash but I like this idea. I may have to try it with pieces of ribbon that I’ve run through my adhesive machine using the re-positional adhesive.

Love your cheerful card. Thanks for the tutorial. If I ever do get some Washi tape I know what to do with it. 🙂
