Gold Washi Tape Christmas Card Video

Hello, Crafters.

This is my penultimate video for Christmas projects for 2017, and is ideal for anyone who's very behind with their Christmas cards. 

This Washi Tape card is very quick and easy, and as I said in the video, if I'd designed it sooner, I would have been happy to mass produce it for my Christmas card this year!

Although I haven't tried it, this idea could also be carried through with Designer Series Paper (DSP). 
However, there are several disadvantages of going down this road though, the main one is that it would cease being a quick and easy card to make!

 The first task would be to find a suitable DSP that has a small allover design, and then it would have to be cut in even half inch strips. 

They could be adhered with Fast Fuse, but there wouldn't be a second chance like Washi Tape gives, if you don't lay it down straight! 

On second thoughts, maybe this wouldn't be such a good idea after all! LOL!

There were several aspects about this Washi Tape that made making this card so quick and easy. 

For example, it worked out that the top layer took exactly seven strips, and left equals blank gaps top and bottom. 

This made placing the Foil Snowflake slap bang in the centre of the card a walk in the park.

I certainly hope we have similar products next Christmas to be able to recreate this card, or something similar!

 Well, that's it from me today. 
Yesterday I didn't make much progress with preparing the new catalogues for posting, although everything is ready for envelopes. 

I just need to print the rest of the labels and I'm good to go. 

When I post my blog tomorrow I really hope to be able to tell you that all the catalogues are ready to go! 

Time will tell! Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
