Blue Rose Birthday Card


I made this card for a friend I'm seeing this evening. I had some rolls of washi tape - a sticky tape made of thin paper which comes in all sorts of colours and patterns - which I wanted to use so planned the design around that. I put two blue stripes at the bottom and a complementary stripe of a blue rose print above that. I felt the solid block colour was too strong to put at both the top and the bottom of the card so I placed two rows of the blue rose pattern at the top.

I was sent the washi tape to review by the nice people at 3M, who also make Scotch tape and the like. The washi tapes come in a range of designs and are so easy to use, and I love the fact that there's no gluing involved!

 
To finish the card, I bought a topper I'd bought as part of a package on Ebay (you are allowed to cheat sometimes!) and a happy birthday outline sticker.
