Less is More 134...Washi

The challenge this week at Less is More is to use washi tape!  I went "Christmas" with some Christmas colors when choosing washi from my HUGE stash...LOL..., a die from Papertrey Ink and made a third card with the same tape and some W Plus 9 Designs dies...
I tore strips of washi , put them on panel, die cut the word "merry" and put black piece behind and popped up panel on card.

I used the die cut from the first, layered, and added a Papertrey Ink sentiment with a red rhinestone.
EDITED**  Thank you SO much, Chrissie and Jen for Showcasing my "merry & bright" card this week...I am honored and sooooooo thrilled to have your recognition!!!

The third one I put the washi over an entire panel and die cut the W Plus 9 Designs dies...only thing is my "joy" was ditched the whole panel idea,  and used the cut outs with some buttons, embroidery floss and an impression plate from Papertrey Ink for the background (I had to run the paper through on the die SIDEWAYS and CROOKED... from both sides... to match the angle of the words...the angle not only didn't go in this direction on the die, but also not at this angle...and thought it looked funny if the angles didn't match...hope that makes sense).  Here's the original panel...

Super easy and simple:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
