Hi there crafty friends!
Michele Boyer here today with a couple cards using Queen & Company’s new washi tape. There are so many pretty colors and patterns, I had a hard time choosing which to use. For both of my cards, I used my favorite butterfly die from the new Butterfly Shaker Kit.
First, I laid strips of Orange, Green and Blue Floral washi tape onto white card stock to create a block of each color. I die-cut the butterflies then adhered the green and orange onto a block of yellow Stripes paper. I was careful not to adhere the lower right green and upper right orange wings as I knew I wanted to nip those parts away when I adhered the butterfly foam shape.
Once the foam shape was adhered and the green and orange overlap was removed, I sprinkled some Posies and Pops inside. I covered the toppings with the pre-cut transparency then adhered the blue butterfly with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue. After stamping the sentiment (from Paper Smooches), I adhered a few more Posies around the butterflies.

On my second card, I created a patterned background using Purple Polka and Green Polka washi tape. I used grid paper beneath the card stock to ensure straight placement and even spacing. Once the tape was adhered, I laid the Circle Foam Front Die over top with the butterfly in the circular opening. I taped the dies in place then die-cut the panel.
After determining the amount of space needed for my sentiment (by Paper Smooches), I trimmed away a bit of the taped panel along the top and bottom. To hide the bottom cut edge, I tied pretty Purple Sparkle String. Once the partial panel was adhered to my card base, I placed the butterfly, carefully aligning the dotted stripes, adhered and stamped my sentiment and added two Purple Iridescent Flowers.
