10 cards in 20 minutes – Washi Tape Christmas Card

Today’s 10 in 20 video tutoFestive Tree-3rial  features a Washi Tape Christmas Card.  It uses the Stampin’ Up! All is Calm Designer Washi Tape along with the Tree Punch.

I absolutely love the way this card turned out.  I’m excited that is a bit different. Its not your traditional holiday colors but yet it is totally festive and fun!

What Is Washi Tape? To put it simply, washi tape is a high quality masking tape made of rice paper.

But more than that, washi tape is a material which is beautiful yet useful at the same time. You can tear it, stick it, reposition it, write on it… The low tack adhesive makes it extremely easy to use (and reuse). I think it is so popular because it is so easy to use – and looks good while doing it!

What’s The Difference Between Washi Tape and Japanese Masking Tape?Festive Tree-2  Nothing. They’re the same thing! Originally marketed as Japanese Masking Tape, at some point the accepted international term for the tape became “washi tape”. In Japan, it’s known as masking tape (????????) and the most renowned brand of washi tape is simply called mt – which stands for “masking tape”. The term “washi tape” refers to the fact that the tapes are made from Japanese rice paper and differentiates it from typical masking tape you might find in the hardware store.

What’s The Difference Between Washi Tape and Deco Tape?  Deco Tape is a plastic tape. The tape itself feels a bit like a thin packing tape and is stickier than washi tape. It’s great for sealing envelopes and wrapping presents but a little harder to use for paper crafting.


1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of whisper white cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base.

2. Cut a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of basic gray cardstock and layer it on top of your base.

Tip: I recommend using a liquid glue as its easier to wiggle your basic gray piece into place.

3. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of whisper white cardstock for the top of your card.

Tip: Be sure to decorate your 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock before adhering it to the top of your card.

Washi Tape

1. Hand tear your Washi Tape and position it on the front of your 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of whisper white card.

Tip: I made a the very top gray piece of washi tape thinner by sticking only half of the tape along the top and folding it over.  I did the same thing to the bottom blue piece along the very bottom.  

Tip: If you don’t like where you position your washi tape you can easy and carefully pull it up and reposition it.  That’s the beauty of Washi Tape!

Tree Punch

1. Use the Stampin’ Up! Tree Punch a tree out of silver glimmer paper.

2. Punch a Lost Lagoon flower to add to your tree.

Tip: I have find that a mini glue dot is the best adhesive to add your flower to the silver glimmer paper tree.

3. Add your Jewel Rhinestone to the center of your flower.

    Brandy, I love your 10 in 20 videos. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card…love the washi tape. I’ve never used washi tape but this has definitely peaked my interest.

    Hi Brandy I am not a customer of yours (Live in Canada) but I sure do enjoy watching all your videos, I learn a little more with every one.

    Hello Brandy, I love the look of the washi tape card. I love receiving them too. I know you like us to pass them on, but I love to keep them and get inspired by them, so, I have a Brandy card collection, I love them all. Thank you for sending them. I think this card could be made with the Stampin’ up Tape it set too! You can stamp them on vellum and get a really cute look if the Washi tape is not the color you are looking for. Thanks again for the inspiration and for sharing with us!.

    Love, love, love the washi tape idea as a background to your punched tree! In case some ladies would like to add the silver bow I wanted to share an easy way to make a bow with a fork (found this on Pinterest!). My bows are always messy looking so if I can find an easy way to tie them I’m all for it! Can’t wait for more Christmas card videos!!!!!
