When I was at Convention earlier this month I received a swap from the very talented Marelle Taylor. Marelle, like myself always put a technique into her swaps and hers this year was terrific. As soon as I was back in my room that day I was deconstructing it to see how she had made it!
Once I was back home I made the cards below for my Team Meeting that month for my down line demonstrators to create as a make and take. So below is the first one.
I love how it uses washi tape in such a new way and I was so intrigued as to how the butterfly was reversed. Read on and I’ll let you know how it’s done! Now the card above and below are done with washi tape from the current 2014 catalogue and these are both on the Retiring List of products from that catalogue.
Now this one is a sneak peek using new 2015 washi tape from the 2015 catalogue that goes live on June 2nd.
Now how to create this piece – Stick washi tape across the top of your cut card piece and make sure it wraps under the card about a third of the way, round the corners using a corner rounder punch. Punch out the butterfly using only half the punch, flip the punched half over and you will have it covered with washi tape, position it to the side of the washi panel and mount both on your embossed card with dimensionals foam shapes. the sentiment is stamped using black Staz-On ink and done before mounting the panel onto the card.
And here is Marelle’s original card that I received as a swap. You can read her post on her blog here.
I love it when I get inspiration from the swaps I receive at Convention – thanks Marelle for the great swap!
