Hello There

My recent order from Simon Says Stamp arrived today and I needed to break into a few things to initiate them. This is what came out:


I may or may not have acquired more washi tape, and that stars piece went perfectly with that piece of paper from the Basic Grey True Love 6x6 paper pack. Yes, I know it has pink in it, but I like it with the other colors, a lot.

Since the paper is called True Love and it contains pink, I thought it appropriate that I use a piece of star washi tape from a MME set called Boy Crazy. It's only right. Then I added some eyelets to the strips of paper and wove some Timeless Twine through them:


I poked each end down through the outer eyelets then both up through the center one to tie the bow.

This card came together pretty quickly, and I kinda like it. I may need to go play with some more of my new loot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the chevrons and the eyelet trick. I have loads of them and hardly ever use them.

Aren't you clever with the eyelets? I really like that idea, I'm gonna pin it so I don't forget it. I like the contrast of the stars and the chevrons, it's a lovely card.
