Lydia here today! I made card sets for some people for Christmas, and I wanted the sort of bright and festive birthday cards to also look classy and grown-up. The thing I love about the metallic tapes is that I can get the look of foiling without digging out my laminator and all those foiling supplies! So after I stenciled my cards with stencil brushes, I added a strip of the 1/8" gold tape and voila! A classy AND fun card.

Hello everyone! Hope you all have a great Christmas/Holiday season, I relaxed and didn't do as much as I wanted, but it OK, sometimes you need to slow down.
So today, I have an elegant card for you, the steps are very simple and easy. " This card is a 6" x 6" square.
Step 1: Gather all your materials together, I ended up using 1/4" gold metallic and 1/8" white.
Step 2: Cut a piece of patterned paper, this one is 2" x 5.25", then apply the 1/8" Gold Metallic Tape every 1/4" (as seen in picture)
Step 3: Now add the 1/8" White Crepe Tape in between gold tapes.
Step 4: Add piece to 5.25" x 5.25" patterned paper.
Step 5: Add a piece of 1/4" Gold Metallic Tape to die-cut border panel.
Step 6: Add sentiment a heart, Add embellishments.
Here is the final look. Love the color combo and the gold and white tape really add an extra elegant touch.
Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

Happy New Year!
Karen here with a calendar panel thats easy!
I used some cute left over scraps and made the bg.
Instead of making strips of paper for the layers I've used Rainbow Tape! The Metallic Purple 1/8" and Silver 1/32" gives it just a little shimmer! I love how easy the White Crepe Tape is to color with Copics. This is a great way to insure that your elements match perfect with your colored images.
Speaking of images...How adorable are these from IO!
Here is a closer look at the Rainbow Tape.
Thanks for Looking!
