Tape It Up Card

Tape It Up, how fun is that! This week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is all about tape.

For the challenge, I have created a card with a small gift inside. My card began with folded black cardstock for the base of the card. Next I used Tim Holtz Kraft-Core and a honeycomb embossing folder then sanded the paper so the kraft color shows. 

The next layer from yellow paper from my stash that was stamped using Archival Jet Black ink with a great stamp from Inkadinkado. I also used Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Tim Holtz for a vintage appeal. Next I taped the card with tissue tape to form a border and ink it with lightly with Vintage Photo. The butterflies on the card were colored using LePlume II and Close To My Heart markers. Tim Holtz Idea-ology Clock Face and Game Spinners were added for additional depth and fun.

The inside of the card was taped with Tim Holtz tissue tape then a sentiment from Close To My Heart was stamped on the yellow cardstock after it was lightly inked on the edge with Broken China. The number were stamped on yellow paper and mounted on blue. The banner edge was cut using a square punch. Fiber ribbon was added to the bookmark for fun.. 

Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

  1. Hello yet again Judy. :) You've really nailed the use of tissue tapes on tags! Love your background on this one. The embossed honeycomb pattern looks really nice under the butterfly stamped collage. I love Tim's sketchbook tissue tape. It's perfect here! Very nice card and bookmark. Thanks again for sharing your cards with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
