washi tape birthday cards

my cousin, allison, and friend, laura, will be receiving these handmade birthday cards in the mail. got the idea from annemarie buckley at scout's honor co. blog. she used japanese washi tape to make colorful cards. i had bought the washi tape at pretty tape's etsy shop last year and i had some vellum envelopes which make it extra special because they are see-through.  just used scissors to cut the tape out in the shape of candles and then smacked an abstract expressionist stamp from 2010 (which you can still purchase through amazon right here) on the envelope. i am not an expert at crafting so it looks amateur, but i feel it's the thought that counts and i love using my own two hands to make something.
