Washi Tape "Thinking of You" card

I would consider my recent craft purge a success.  I donated two large boxes of supplies that I was no longer excited about.  Believe me, I still have a lot of supplies in my basement, craft closet, and craft room, but it is a little less crowded.

What is even more inspiring is that for the past week I have been crafting like crazy!  The purge helped me remember supplies I have bought, but forgot about.  Today I decided to open a trio of washi tapes that I think I purchased a couple of years ago, but never used.  During the purge I was also reminded of this fun vertical sentiment that I probably purchased in the late 1990s...and probably haven't used since then either ;)

What a fun coincidence that the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash is "Lost and Found."  A perfect pairing for my card.

Directions:  I added washi tapes to a 4.25x5.5 panel, stamped the sentiment, then ran through my stitched rectangle die, and adhered to a white card base.  Done!  

A quick and easy masculine card.  I hope this post inspires YOU!

Happy Monday!
