Washi Birthday Cards

Good morning! The other day I shared the birthday card I made for my mom, and today I'm dropping by to share the birthday card I made for my Dad - which turned out to be so fun I ended up making a few extra to have in my stash! It was a great way to use up some washi tape - something I seem to have a huge stash of and not actually use terribly often either!

This first one is the one I made for my Dad:

And then I played with some different color combinations and sentiments for a few more. Sentiment on all of these is from one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets for birthdays.

On each of these I wrapped the washi around the back of the white panel so that it wouldn't peel up at all later, then adhered the white panels onto different colors cardbases.

I tried to use two different widths of washi tape for interest in the design.

I also tried to alternate the direction of the washi each time I put down a layer - I thought it gave it more of a woven texture that way which was kind of fun!

I also thought it was kind of fun that the theme for this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Happy Birthday:
