Define the edges with Rainbow Tape!

Jenny here today!
 I thought I'd share an easy butterfly card with you.
Black, White and Bold color always make a good combo for any card.
Rainbow Tape extras give it a little extra oomph!

I used Copics to color the image. And then I framed it with rectangle die cuts. I added Rainbow Tape to the frames.. black and white. It gives it just a little bit of extra POP and defines the edge! I used the 1/16" widths for both cards.

You can find more info of this project HERE on my blog!

Perfect Finishing Touches

Hi - Lydia here.

When I've spent tons of time on a beautiful, handmade card, the last thing I want to do is put it in a boring envelope for its trip to a friend. Since I don't have the gift of beautiful lettering, I have to embellish my envelopes another way.

My signature color is blue, and so I bought these gorgeous Audrey Blue envelopes and jazzed them up with metallic tape for cards during the month of December to add some holiday sparkle. My favorite is the 1/16th silver to go with the blue - but the wider taps are nice on the edges and on the flaps as well. It makes an ordinary envelope look very high end. You can also create a metallic box for the address portion of the envelope.

It's a simple, quick touch, but it adds a lot of elegance to your envelopes.

One tip on placement - use grid paper under your envelope to ensure straight lines.

What I love most about by Giovana Smith

Hello friends!! Giovana here today with a coffee & Christmas card, perfect to just add a gift card form your favorite coffee shop and you are done!!

For this project I used a leftover piece from this card, I used the 1/32" Silver Metallic Tape, added to top and bottom.

I added a snowflake-like clear background , I also added the 1/32" Silver Metallic Tape to the edge of the Merry Christmas paper. Stamped the coffee sentiment on a piece of vellum  and then added a couple of coffee wood veneer cups. Super cute!!


 Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

Tinsel Trees by Karen Amidon

Hello! Karen here back with another fun way to dress up those Christmas cards using Rainbow Tape!

Today I am showing another way to use your Rainbow Tape. Here I have used the Christmas Tree Cutout Die from Impression Obsession and also I made a tree from three triangles!

For this layer, I have used the 1/32" and the 1/8"  Silver Metallic Rainbow Tape to make the decorative lines. 

Using the 1/32" Silver Metallic Rainbow Tape, I have crisscrossed the tape to decorate the trees. I cut this layer with the Nesting Frame 7 die. Next, I embossed the layer with TE Snowfall embossing folder. I added Silver Metallic tape along the bottom of the three triangles. The third tree was popped up in front of these two. I went back over the snowfall embossing and highlighted the dots with glitter.

Thanks for looking!
