Tic, Tac, Washi ....

.... Morning!  I've a birthday card to share with you this morning.  Our challenge at The Male Room this week is to use Washi Tape on your masculine project, and last week I made this card.  I had some bits left over and when I saw the Tic-Tac-Toe board at The Paper Players - PP#247 this week, I knew I had to make another card.

Stamps: PTI - Phrase Play #3, MFT - Terrific Ties
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Tangerine Tango
Dies: PTI - Phrase Play #4; Die-namics - Terrific Ties
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Washi Tape; White Embossing Powder

I used the vertical column containing Washi Tape, birthday and die cut from the Tic-Tac-Toe table.  On the card I made last week I used the black frame and inlaid the Washi covered letters.  This time I've used the Washi covered frame and inlaid the black letters along with the black panel.  I used Versamark to stamp the words on the panel and heat embossed with white powder.  I adhered some Washi tape across opposite corners of the card and adhered the "enjoy" panel using dimensional tape.  I finished the front by adding a stripey bow tie to the black panel.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel stamped a dotty bow tie and added a birthday greeting.

Here are the two cards side by side - I am so pleased that I got to use the left over stash!!

I'm aching all over this morning!  Jonathan, Kathryn and I joined a gym last week as we all need to get fit and lose some weight.  We've got to get into the habit of going to the gym, so we're going as a family, which makes it much harder to skip.  We've been twice so far and we are all discovering muscles that we'd forgotten we have!  I believe it takes about six weeks to make new habits stick, so we are determined to get into a good family habit.  Hopefully, in six weeks' time the aches won't be quite so bad either.  That's all for now.  See you soon.

Great use of the washi tape Deborah - I love how you used it with the die cut, I've pinned this to have a go myself! Good luck at the gym - it will get easier and your right, so much easier to stick at when you do it with family. My husband and I started playing hockey with my kids; hard work, but such fun! Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
