These cards were made for a swap with a washi tape theme. For those not familiar with it, washi tape is a fantastic craft supply - it's like a paper tape, which can be quite plain or quite highly decorated... I used one which in itself is variegated, so it seems to have a lot more to it (cheating!) - and I used a red and white polka dot one. I have a growing collection of washi tape - there are lots of fun ones out there, so I'm sure I'll get more before I'm through.
