Having fun with Washi tape

The washi tapes that I have were not very popular until recently.  I thought they were just tapes and didn't bother to do much with them.

But as I was thinking about cutting some baubles out from my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, I had an idea and experimented it.  It worked pretty well:

I first taped the washi tapes on a piece of cardstock.  Since the patterns of the washi tape can form a continuous pattern, I did my best to line them up perfectly.  When the ornaments were cut out, it looks as if they were cut out from a piece of patterned paper.  So cute!  The big round ornament was covered with the silver washi tape from Holidays from the Heart Guide but I'm afraid the picture does not do it justice. 

I threaded the linen through and tied a bow, stamped a sentiment, added a piece of the glitter tape, put it on the Juniper cardstock background, and finally the patterned paper was cut with my new favorite - the scallop border punch, the card is done!

My card is entering the following challenges:
