Using inspiration from finalist #9 in the Top 20 of the 2014 Gallery Idol Competition, I created a card using lots of Washi tape and a blingy (blingey? blingish?) strip of gold trim.
Here's the supply list with embedded links for your shopping ease:
- Stamps: World Traveler (same as last week's card.)
- Ink: Black
- Paper: Black
- Accessories: Gold Shimmer Trim, Smoothie Striped Washi Tape, Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape, Topiary Striped Washi Tape (no link available at this time), Honey Triangle Washi Tape, Black Arrow Washi Tape
- Tools: Paper Trimmer, Micro-Tip Scissors, Foam Tape
To get my shimmer trim to line up with my Washi covered wedge, I glued the black wedge onto my top card panel, laid down the Washi wedge without gluing, laid a ruler along the bottom edge, removed the Washi wedge, and drew a faint pencil line. I cut the shimmer trim longer than I'd need and line up the edges with the pencil line to affix.
The card is for my niece who will be taking a "gap year" after she graduates from high school to visit three different countries for missions. Could the sentiment be any more perfect? I don't think so.
Until next time,
