Card Tutorial: Wishing You Loads of Washi Tape Fun!

Hi everyone! How do you use washi tape in your projects? I love all the little touches they add to paper crafts, gift wraps, planners and more. But if I can use it as patterned paper, my heart just sings!!! here's a card where I couldn't resist using the wide washi tape to make my own patterned paper. Let me show you how easy it is!
If you wish to create a similar card, you'll need the following supplies (some are affiliate links): 
Celebrate The Fun Bundle 
 This bundle is part of the RG Deal of the Week: 
Retail Price: $49.93
Whip Cream Cardstock
Berry Black True Color Fusion Ink 
Amaze Die-Cutting Machine  Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner
Others: sewing machine, thread

The Chevron washi tape is so cheerful that you only need a neutral cardstock to go with it. Here I used Whip Cream cardstock trimmed down to 5.25" x 4". 
Very carefully and slowly peel the washi tape back about an inch and place it on the cardstock block. Gradually peel from roll and keep pressing down on the paper till you have covered the whole block.  Press out any trapped air bubbles with your fingers. Attach to card.

Die-cut the Celebrate plate using the die and Amaze machine.

Layer the diecut block on top of the washi tape block. The bright happy colors from the washi tape gives the bold diecut design just the right pop!

Machine stitch to secure the diecut to the card.

With pen, outline the die-cut design.

Stamp the sentiment 'Wishing You Loads of Fun!' with Berry Black True Color Fusion Ink. Cut it into a strip.

Attach the strip to the card overlapping the banner section.

Machine stitch the strip in place.

Here are some close-ups of my card.

I hope you enjoy!
