So, let's get to it! Starting off my washi-frame parade today is this card featuring a super-simple frame made with Purple/White Dots washi tape. I simply matted my focal-image panel on a second piece of cardstock and then adhered strips of washi tape along the edges of the central panel, wrapping the washi tape edges around to the back of the mat. Quick and easy!

Next, I made a frame that somehow reminds me of something more rustic, like a twig frame. Red Stripes washi tape was perfect for this project--I used the stripes as cutting guides to create more slender strips of washi tape. Plus, I love the long, lean framing effect that the stripes add to the design!

For my last project for today, I wanted to show you a really fun patchwork style of washi-tape frame! I trimmed a panel of white cardstock just a bit smaller than my card base and then adhered short strips of three different washi tapes (Pink/White Dots, Yellow/White Dots, and Orange Stripes) all around the edges. There's no need to line up the washi-tape strips; I simply wrapped one edge of each piece around to the back of the panel and varied how much was wrapped behind with each piece.
