Today, I'm sharing cards I made using the pictures on large 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper. I make cards and rarely scrapbook, so I never use those big pages that have the large areas of graphics on them. I decided to cut a 5x5 area around the images that I like and adhere the 5x5 panel to a card base. Then, I wrap washi tape or Tim Holtz paper tape to the edges of the card. These papers are all from Tim Holtz. 

I added sentiments to a  couple of the cards, but many times the graphics are so strong they don't need a sentiment. This is just an easy way to use your decorative papers and washi tape, two things I need to use more Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for Day 9!


  1. So fun and a great
    way to use the
    wash tape!

  2. Great way to use those 12x12 papers with large designs! I don't like to use them for scrapbooking so this is a good idea for me as well.

  3. Love the combination of patterned papers with the washi for fun and easy cards. The vintage Christmas images are so cute!

  4. Such cute cards. Love the vintage looking images.

  7. I do the same with the papers, sometimes it is just so hard to cut into them though! Love your cards. TFS
