Altenew | Washi Tape Stripes

Hello there, today I have a tag and card to share with you using washi tape. I don't know about you but I often buy washi tape but never use it. I thought it would be fun to use the washi tape as  background on the tag and then when you add the tag to a card, it becomes it's own focal point which I thought was really cool!

For my tag, I started off by adding Altenew Cherry Blossom Slim Washi Tape to a panel of white cardstock. I added the tape so that there were small gaps in between the different stripes and went from lightest to darkest and back through again until the panel was covered with the tape. I then cut the panel using the Altenew Terrific Tags Dies

I took the Altenew Spring Roses Die Set and cut one of the flowers three times from white cardstock. Two of them were cut with Altenew Double-Sided Adhesive on the back. I stacked them up one on top of another with the non-adhesive one at the bottom. This is because the leaves are going to overhang the tag and I didn't want adhesive there. It was adhered to the tag with small dabs of glue.

I took the sentiment from the Altenew Flower Vine Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag and Iridescent Jewels around the flower. 

As part of my series with Altenew called Terrific Tags with Michelle, I am sharing how you can add tags on to cards. For the card, I took a panel of white cardstock and die cut it using the Altenew Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Plate. This panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then cut it down so that it was 4" wide and added the tag on top with tape runner. 

I wanted to have the card slightly narrower so that the leaf on the tag could overhand the card base slightly but that the card could still fit inside a standard sized envelope. 


Here is the video showing how I made the tag and card:

  1. That's such a brilliant idea - although my children use up my Washi Tape on the back of envelopes, but this is a great idea for me to reclaim it! xx

  2. I'm not sure I could love these more! Fantastic video and great idea to use those thin washi strips. The colours are gorgeous, the floral die cut is stunning and I love the detailed cover plate too. Beautiful projects - if you are ever looking for someone to send them to, you know where to find me! haha! xx
