I ran across a Pinterest page with some really cute quilts that inspired this happy greeting card featuring washi tape sunbeams and FREE magazine fonts. It was so fast and easy to make I decided to scan it into my computer and make a FREE PRINTABLE version for you to download. I also am including a click and print sunbeam pattern for you to make your own washi tape version to attach to a 5 x 7 card.
Step One: Print TWO sunbeams on cardstock. Cut along the sun beams so you can make definition for each beam and cover each one with washi tape. Cut out a half moon on the second sunburst you printed out to use as a pattern for matching scrapbook paper “sun” center.
Step Two: cover each “beam” with washi tape and trim the ends with sharp scissors. I covered the first beams and used my scissors to trim the washi tape to exactly fit. Soon I decided it was too much work! So I just let the pieces overlap.
Step Three: Cut out a half moon with the 2nd print out and use it for a pattern for the center of the sun.
Step Four: Attach the washi tape covered sun with glue lining it up along the bottom edge of a piece of cardstock that is folded and trimmed to 5 x 7. Finally, add magazine font attached with glue stick at the top of the card for the friendly greeting.
I think the greeting card is so fresh and colorful….with the feeling of spring in the air!
I am providing a PDF of the sunbeam pattern for you to print to make your own washi tape greeting cards and a PDF for you to print copies of the actual greeting card. ENJOY!
