Tissue Tape Christmas Cards

Maybe you´ve noticed that my Christmas card for Sunday Postcard Art used several tissue and washi tapes as a Christmas tree. For all of you tape hoarders here are two more ideas how to use tape on your Christmas cards: The card above has a frame made from tissue tape on a light green paper, then I painted gesso over it, added a Christmas tree from Rucola Designs and two rubber stamps from Stampington and Heindesign, and mounted the piece to a dark green card.
The card below was inspired by Anna Scarpino´s lovely cards in the latest issue of Take Ten, p. 109: I just painted a rectangle with gesso on a red card, added a frame with tissue tape and stamped over a star from Dina Wakley. I added a stamped sentiment, and had a finished card in less than ten minutes.

V.a. Dein wunderbares Weihnachtsbaum- Werk mit dem genialen Hintergrund hat es mir angetan aber auch die Sternenkarte sieht super aus.

You have been busy Marion...Love your use of tape for your special Christmas cards = very cool and inspiring!

It looks like another year for me that I am "thinking" more about Christmas creating than actually doing...one year I will start early enough!
