Next up we have Designer Kate Nolan Denham with the cutest little boy card! First up Kate stamped on one of our Smooth Tags.  The she created her own fauz washi tape pieces out of some embossed scraps of  Core. So CUTE!
Here are some detailed shots oh how Kate made those cute little washi tape looking strips using her 1.5 Sticker maker.  We use these 24/7 around here. No more sticky hands from that wet adhesive and small paper bits!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
Layer it all on some Spotted Cardstock and then a Vintage Cardstock base and you are good to go!
