Happy Easter and Washi Birthday

I wish all my dear followers and visitors 

 Happy Easter!

Thank you for all your kind comments and for your frequent visits - they are very much appreciated!

Cath Edvalson at Moxie Fab has all those cool challenges going on - I am sure you know about them. One is about Washi Tape. I do own some...., but I rarely use it. I really don't know what to do with it. I like Jennifer McGuires suggestion - she uses it instead of repositional tape and it really is fabulous for that. But regardless,  I decided to try to use it for what is is designed..... and made a card for my nephew's birthday:

I taped the Washi tape onto card stock and then ran it through my Big Shot in a Sizzix embossing folder - works beautifully, I think. I totally blends with the paper. You can't even tell its separate. The arrows are die cuts from QuicKutz and the sentiment is Studio 112.

Auch wieder sehr schön und bunt! Der embosste Hintergrund gefällt mir sehr gut und die Idee mit dem Washi Tape finde ich toll.

Hey Cornelia! Thanks for linking this up to the Washi Tape Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

Just LOVE the effect you got by embossing washi tape! It really does seem to disappear into the card base. Great idea!

This is a great use of washi! It looks fantastic embossed! This would be so great for a teen. Very cool card.
