Creating with Duck Brand Tape

Hi guys! I received a sheet of Duck brand tape while at the BlogHer'12 conference over the weekend. It had a tie-dyed look to it.  I wasn't sure what to do with it, so I decided to use it to make a birthday card for a special friend.  I took a piece of the tape and applied it to a piece of white card stock and ran it through my Vagabond machine to cut out flower shapes, using a steel rule die to cut through it, then stamped a stem sentiment and made leaves out of circle punches. The center of the flower was attached with pop dots to add a bit of dimension to it.

Stamps: Stampin' Up
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Stampin' Up
Misc.: Duck Brand Tape, Circle Punch, Alterations Tattered Floral Die, Ribbon

I can't wait for our friend to receive it.  I know it will be the first birthday card made with Duck Tape that she will have received!  I know it was the first one I have ever made. 

Hope you have a great day, and spend some time doing something you love!
