Expressions Tape DIY Card

I received Scotch Expressions Tape in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

Every now and then I get the “itch” to do something crafty. This time around, as I felt the need to craft, I decided to hand-make a birthday card for a friend. I wanted to make something unique and thoughtful. Thanks to Scotch Expressions Tape, I was able to create a fun birthday card full of color, fun patterns, and design.
