And so it does!
|How it will be folded to go into the envelope|
Now, I have to admit that this isn't washi tape. I'm having a hard time finding white washi, and for this particular design, a color would not look as good as it does on the card design I'll share tomorrow. So I searched my medicine cabinet, found paper tape for dressing wounds, and used that instead.
Feel free to call me genius. I won't mind.
This is so exciting for me!!! I had an email conversation recently with another stamper (Hi, Gay!) about how easy it is to get a bit bored doing CAS cards. Discovering a great idea like Sharon's with the ATCs and adapting it to my style is like a shot of adrenalin. Expect to see more of this fun idea in the days to come!
To make this card, I stamped the three panels and then lined them up on my cutting mat with a smidge of space between each. (You need a smidge of space for the hinge of tape to work right.) Then, I carefully taped the two front seams, flipped the whole thing over, taped the back seams, and then trimmed the excess tape from the top and bottom edges with scissors.
BTW, I would like to link to Sharon's blog but couldn't find it. If anyone knows her, please send me a link. I'd love to send traffic her way! Here's a shot of one of her foldable ATC cards from the magazine. So beautifully artsy, yet also CAS.
