Video: Washi Covered Die Cutting

Hi everyone! Today, I have a video showing you how I created a washi tape covered die cut.

You may notice that this is the same "thanks" die cut I used in my last video - I've just been needing lots of thank you cards lately, so I like to put my cut files to use and try to find new ways to incorporate them onto multiple cards! In my last video, I heat embossed the die cut, and this time, it is covered in washi patterns so they have completely different looks.

Once I covered a piece of paper with washi, I used my Silhouette to die cut the large word. However, you can do the same with metal dies and a manual die cutting machine - it should work the same since the washi is quite thin and doesn't add much dimension.

To make a nice background for my die cut, I repeatedly stamped a small star image (from this stamp set) to create a falling star-like background. I also colored in a little birdie (from this stamp set) to rest on my "T."

Here's the video so you can see the process!

By the way, if you want to check out another way to use washi tape, check out another recent card I made.

I've been using washi tape a lot and am having fun experimenting. I'd love to know - what fun and creative ways do you use washi tape??
