Basteltraum's Challenge #53 : All about men and boys cards

Hello my friends!

I am just popping in with a veeery simple and quick card! I was thinking of a solution to use my, let's say, 1278 rolls of washi tape I have in my stash.... I bet you are with me, huh??! :-)))

So for the new challenge of Basteltraum (which starts today) we had to create a card for men and/or boys. So I grabbed all my blueish and greyish washi tapes and created those super simple birthday cards: I just taped side by side pieces of different washi tapes in a row, cut out a "Happy" (it is a word die from MFT which does not cut at the bottom. Then I extended the cut with my craft knife in a straight line to the end of the paper) and glued this stripe over the washi tapes.  For more interest, I diecut a frame and mounted it with some foam tape over to the panel. Some stars and a tiny birthday tag (bot cut out from balsa wood) finished off my design. So easy! Most of the time took me to figure out my design - the cards were made in 20 minutes both!

I hope you got inspired and I would love to see you playing along with us!

Crafty hugs,


  1. LOVE all that beautiful washi tape Tina! I have so much of it and never know how to use it. BTW, do you use a corner chomper for your card edges? x, Dennice
