Today, I’m showing you the TWO new kinds of washi tape you can purchase.
(CLICK HERE to see more patterns & designs of other CTMH washi)
 Boardwalk Washi_Z3066
The top (pink/yellow/orange) washi is called CARNIVAL washi tape.
The bottom (blue/green/gray) washi is called BOARDWALK.

So - let’s recap….
You will receive THREE different rolls of washi tape with each pack of the NEW washi tape!!

EACH washi tape pack includes….
  • 2 rolls (5 yds each) of the 1/4” washi tape 
  • 1 roll (5 yds.) of WORD washi tape J
So – now that we saw this FUN, new washi…take a peek at the card(s) I created using these WASHI WORDS

To create these cards, I used the Blossom Paper pack & Adventure Paper Fundamentals cardstock.
(Want to learn MORE about our Paper Fundamentals line….click here

So – I have to ask…did you notice?  J

Did you notice that there are NO STAMPED images on either of these cards???

I used the Chevron Border Punch, and the Artiste Cricut collection to create the glitter shape behind the word, the 3D rolled flowers & the green (pear) leaf branch.

I did use some Desert Sand ink…to ink the edges of my flowers & the designer papers…so there is a little bit of ink on the page.  

I hope you enjoyed this peek at some NEW products available ONLY at Close To My Heart.J 
Now it’s time to Hop on over to my friend & fellow consultant Marie Flayer’s blog to check out what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us! J
