Yesterday's washi card showed how the tape can be used to create a tidy border, and today's cards show how it can be used to ground a design element...in these cases, a punched label.
The strip of tape connects the card base and the tag in a colorful, interesting way, although I do love the purist white-on-white look myself.
Note that you could always use a piece of designer paper to achieve the same effect.

Today--Flag Day--is our 28th wedding anniversary. I feel like I'm 32 years old, which means I married George when I was four. That sounds about right. Time is very relative, isn't it?
Many thanks to Patti M., who sent us a gorgeous anniversary card that I'll share soon.
We're on vacation now in northern Minnesota...the land of a thousand lakes...with George's sister and her husband. In July, we're joining my sister and her family for their "stay"-cation in Maryland. Then, in August, I'm going to Pittsburg by myself for Stephen Ministry Leadership Training. Finally, the weekend after Labor Day, George and I are going to Madison for Ironman Wisconsin, again joining up with his sister and her husband. The guys will do the race. Angela and I will drink mimosas for breakfast and drink wine with dinner while they sweat and suffer their way through 140.6 miles. Good times.
It's going to be a busy summer! I'd love to hear where you are going for your vacation. Please share!
