♥ MME designer tape love ♥

 good morning.  how are you?  do you have crafty plans this weekend?  i am going to try to finish up some projects but i am also going to take some mommy time for my babes.  before i go out to play with them in the sunshine, i wanted to share my project this week over at the MME blog.  

our friday post features projects selected by Jana, Anam and myself from our Pinterest MME Inspiring Pages & Cards page.

i chose this card from the incredibly talented Tracie Claiborne 

i absolutely LOVE her gorgeous palette and design.  i love that you could use this design over and over with the gorgeous patterns in all of the MME lines, with MME scraps or the brand new MME Indie Chic Designer tape.

i chose to create my version using the new tapes i received.  these are so beautiful, have beautiful patterns and adhere beautifully to a piece of cardstock.

here is the designer tape i decided to use for this card

your smile makes life sweet card

 i began my card by cutting a piece of white cardstock 3 x 5".  i then began applying the strips of tape on a diagonal.  when i was finished applying the strips, i turned the card over and cut off the excess tape.  i ran my card front through my sewing machine with different stitches on the tapes.

embellishing the card was easy since the new Ginger layered stickers make it easy to dress up any card.

i then tied twine through the Ginger buttons (direction) and adhered them to the card front

i then adhered the card front to a card base.  this design could be used over and over with designer/washi tapes or scraps of papers you can not bring your heart to throw out.

thank you Tracie for the gorgeous inspiration.  please make sure to check out her blog, but only when you have time to look around, it's incredible.
