Foiled Rainbow Birthdays

I purchased some rainbow foil washi tape at Hobby Lobby last week...not your typical washi, but it intrigued me...and at 50%off...I couldn't resist.  I have made two very clean and simple birthday cards with my foil washi, using my favorite birthday sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp...
I lined up strips of the washi onto a thinner cardstock and then die cut the sentiment from the strips...I actually got two from the strips I laid down!!  I layered them three times for depth.  With the first card, I stamped and embossed, using my MISTI for placement the word "Happy" with versa mark and clear embossing powder.  I wanted the pretty "BIRTHDAY" to be the sole star of the show!!  Here's a pic of the washi and die cuts.
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this washi, because it was SOOOO thin, but the colors are beautiful ...SO RAINBOWY, and the shine is wonderful...just takes a little more time to lay all the strips down.  I had to keep adding more, and more, and more, until there were enough to fit the length of the sentiment die!!  Here's a close up of the sentiment and the background stamping...
 For the second card, I chose to add a foil gold panel cardstock piece to the back of the card panel, along with a simple gold "HAPPY" right before the BIRTHDAY...
 I think the gold ties into the sentiment and gives it a more dressed up feel.  Here's a close up...
Ok...simply done...oh how I LOVE the white space of cards...these were such fun!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Great cards, Lisa!

  2. Love it! I hope to get this die at Stampaway this week. SSS will be there. Simple, yet beautiful. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  3. Both cards are so nice !

  4. Love both of these cards, Lisa! The Washi foil diecut is perfection! I especially like it used with the background-stamped, large "Happy." Thanks for sharing :)

  5. This card is stunning! The washi that you used to create the BIRTHDAY must have taken forever to lay down but the result caught my eye immediately due to the shine. It stands out so beautifully against the white background. Clean and simple but gorgeous!

  6. Gorgeous cards. So clever! I didn't know there was such a thing as foil washi.

  7. So happy you posted this Lisa! I have the die set already and this is a super way to use it!
