Just Add Ink #473 | Choose Two

It’s so lovely to be back designing for a Just Add Ink challenge.  Apart from the fabulous group of ladies in the design team, one of the things that tempted me to stay with JAI is the range of challenges.  It’s a great way to inspire a range of creativity.with a rotating list of fabulous challenge themes.  This week it’s “Choose Two” – Metallics, Twine or Washi Tape.

I am a serial washi tape hoarder.  I buy a new set almost every catalogue and so rarely use it.  The washi from last year’s Holiday Catalogue is currently on the clearance rack (click here to check it out the Clearance Rack), which reminded me to use it – and lots of it!

The wreath for this card was created by wrapping washi tape around a cardstock ring (made with circle dies).

WASHI TIP: Use the metallic washi from the Suite Season washi pack to line the outside edge of the mat layer – creating a pretty layer underneath your card front.

The dimensions for this card:

  • Card Base (Whisper White Thick) – 5″ x 10″, scored at 5″
  • Mat Layer (Whisper White with Washi Tape border) – 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″
  • Card Front (Whisper White embossed with the Subtle folder) – 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″

The ribbon for this card is retired.  Ribbon is another thing I hoard, so I’m trying to use more of my stash before succumbing to the new pretty ribbon in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

The stamp set is brand new though – and a total favourite (even at this early stage!).  You’ll want to get your hands on the new and amazing Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  It’s perfect for just about every Christmas greeting you’ll need this holiday season.

  1. Hi Kelly,
    I just checked the Clearance file and I don’t see the washi tape that you referred to. Will you please help me find it?

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Ann, I think it might only be available in Australia. If you search for ‘washi’ in the online store, it’ll let you know what stock is available in your region. Thanks for visiting my blog! Kelly x

  2. Well now I’m off to see what Washi is in the current Holiday Catalogue so I can CASE your clever card! For some reason washi is one of those things that I don’t particularly hoard. I especially love the washi border peeking out from under the wreath panel.Very clever!
