Duct Tape Card

Anyone who know Coleton well enough knows he is my "Duct Tape Specialist" This boy has just about every color imaginable and is wanting to make everything out of it. His specialties are his rose bouquets. He came up with a clever idea to add duct tape to a greeting card, how clever is that. The cards he created turned out very cool and the pictures really do not do them justice.When he made these we used what they call duct tape fabric (that is where you put 2 pieces together so no sticky is felt). We ran them through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die and decorated from there. I told him after to that I would just put the tape on card stock and run it through that way we can use regular Snail adhesive to attach the cut out instead of Sticky Strip. Plus we would save duct tape since you will never see the other side of it. I can not get this picture to rotate (just tilt your head and you will see it laying correctly) I love this duct tape. I think it looks so Stampin Up. We (I) matched up the edges using wax paper so it wouldn't stick before making the fabric and we used plain grey on the back. Again if we would have thought about it, I would have just attached it to cheap cardstock since the tape gives it stability and really all you are doing is covering up the sticky part. I kept it pretty simple right now but I will do more with it shortly (I couldn't get anything to really strike me the night we were making these.). I am sure we/he will be using other dies to make more cards.
