Washi Tape Embellished Handmade Card

Paper tape, or most commonly known as washi tape, makes creating handmade cards easier than ever! Create quick cards with multiple patterns using strips of paper tape and a few colorful embellishments. Super simple, very little waste and the only glue used is on the floral embellishments.  The ribbons and the paper tape come in coordinated color packs by Martha Stewart.
