Washi Ornament card

I created this card for the "Here We Come A-Washi-ing" challenge at Jingle Belles.
I was trying to come up with a different way to use my washi tapes, and I decided to try and see if I ran strips of wash on white card stock, would my Stampin' Up ornament punch easily?  The answer is yes!  That does not mean that I am inclined to try to reproduce this particular card; making the bows, adhering the elastic metallic strips, and mounting each on foam tape was time consuming.  It's funny how a card that appears relatively CAS (clean and simple) can be quite the opposite.  I am pleased with the outcome overall and I figured out a new way to make use of my washi tape...and I have another Christmas card for my 2016 stash.

Thanks for the challenge, Jingle Belles!
Happy Monday everyone.

Update:  I did not realize that Lauren had already done the washi ornament for her original post for this particular challenge at Jingle Belles...kudos to you, Lauren for thinking of it first!

I agree that sometimes a CAS card can be more time consuming than others.... I've had that happen to me a time or two - where I thought it would be a quick card only to find it took me even longer than I had expected! :) But your card is very pretty and I like the idea of using the washi tape and my punches! :) Have a great day!
