Card of the week: Washi tape card

Washi tape is everywhere at the moment. What is washi tape you ask? Washi tape is a type of Japanese decorative masking tape that has become particularly trendy in the craft world over the last couple of years. Scrapbookers love it, and so do we - especially when it's used to make cute cards like this...

Why we love it:
1. Washi tape is available in every colour and pattern that you could imagine, but we love the combination of these masculine blues and greens to make a striking men's card. 
2. This is one of the cheapest and quickest ways of making a handmade card that we have seen - especially if you can find a stamp with the greeting message you want like the above example. 
3. Washi tape is now widely available in craft stores - in fact I saw some in my local $2 shop the other day, so it's easy to source. 


Have you used Washi tape before? We'd love your thoughts - please comment below...
