Washi Glitter Hello card

Hi, it's Holly posting today!  I pulled out some glitter and some washi tape and played around with those today.  I came up with this fun card to share with you.

I love these two washi tapes and I wanted to find a way to use them together on a card.  Since they both have green in them, I thought green glitter could be the unifying force.  So I gave it a shot, and this is what happened. 

I adhered a strip of the Aqua Antique Floral Washi Tape on a diagonal on white cardstock. Then I laid down a strip of the 1/4" Scor-Tape above and below the Washi tape.  A strip of the Antique Floral Washi Tape, (pink and white), was adhered above the Scor-Tape.  I then laid down another strip of the Scor-Tape above the pink and white Washi tape, and then repeated with the Aqua tape and another strip of Scor-Tape.

I carefully trimmed off the excess edges of the tapes and then set my piece down on some scratch paper.  I peeled the liners off all the Scor-Tape strips, and then I covered them with Peeled Paint Distress Glitter.  I used the Glitter Roll technique from Technique Junkies to make sure all the glitter was well-adhered, and then I shook off the excess.

I glued this piece down onto a green card base.  I used the same green cardstock to cut out the Hello - set of 2 die (Cheery Lynn Designs), and then I adhered the "Hello" to the bottom of the glittery background piece.

I thought about leaving this card alone at this point, but it just seemed to be screaming for a 3D flower.  I cut out the Olive Branches and glued them down on the left side. Next I cut out the Sweet William Strip, and used the tiny tweezers from the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to curl up the flower petals. I used a rhinestone brad to adhere the flowers together and then I glued the flower down over the Olive Branches.

I love how the Washi tape looks with the glitter in between them. It's so much fun to use glitter and the Scor-Tape and so much easier than messing with liquid glue!

Your card is so bright and cheery! Thanks Holly!
