Faux Washi Tape Card

So, believe it or not, I actually don't own much washi tape.  
(Disclaimer: I bought some from the store earlier this week but I haven't used it yet and, to be honest, I might return it.)
You see, I'm having a BLAST making faux washi tape.  
Either with tissue paper or just cardstock and masking, I'm loving the process.  
Plus, with all the amazing background stamps available now, the possibilities are ENDLESS!  
I love that!  
To make this faux washi tape, I simply masked the width of my washi tape with regular post-it notes and then used torn post it notes for the torn edges of the washi tape.  I stamped and then used a sponge to give it a little more background color of a transparent look.  

I used Paper Smooches background stamps, Geo-Graphic (here) and Debonair (here).  
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Script Sentiments (here).  

The stars are left over from the inside of the Papertrey Ink star border die.  :)  
It's the perfect itty bitty star. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Wow - this is so clever. How inspiring. Thank you for sharing such a great idea. :) I don't have any washi tape either and have been considering getting some. Clearly there is no need. My husband will love that you've saved us some money. Yay! :)
Have a good weekend.

Not much of a washi-er myself...Just started using the deco tape recently. Cute cards like this one are the reason I don't need to get any too :)
