washi plaid (WPlus9, Catered Crop, SSS)

DD needs a birthday card.  Happy to oblige.  Picked a couple of challenges and here's the result.

Can you say "use up some washi tape?"  Doesn't that sound good? And it's pretty darn easy to create a plaid with washi.  Put your vertical strips down onto a piece of CS, extending them over the edge to hold it down.  Lift every other strip, pulling it back and sticking it temporarily to your work surface.  Lay down a horizontal strip.  Pull the lifted strips back into place and lift the other every-other strips.  Repeat.

TIP:  I used stitching on the banner and sentiment strip cuz adhesive doesn't stick too well to washi.  Plus it fits the mood (as in board).

I'm using the Mood Board from WPlus9 again.  And the recipe to use washi is from Catered Crop Washi's Up?  And since I can, I'm joining the fun at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge one more time.  Who wouldn't love some free shopping over there?  I've got a wish list a mile long.

Here's wishing you a fun week!

You made my day with this darling card, darling! It truly looks like fabric ~ just phenomenal! I've been scrolling back a few, too, which I somehow missed, and as always you impress the heck outta me!! Your post in tribute to Cath was so heart-felt and expressed so well how we all feel. Hugs, Darnell

Oh, I couldn't bring myself to use so much washi on one card (I need to let go), but I love what you've done.

You are seriously not going to believe this - but I sewed some hearts together a few days ago, planning to use them in this challenge! how weird is that! I absolutely love what yo've done with the washi - so clever and pretty! PS the challenge for SSS Monday challenge is patchwork.

Holy Smokes! This is genius. Love it!

What a fantastic idea? I've tried weaving CS and it's a pain as it moves around while you're working on it. Washi tape would solve all of my problems! I love your simple heart banner on top of it all!
