Adhere to your landscape teal card blank and pop to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Using the dies as a guide, cut ONE drop from the Sepia Tabs washi roll. Lift up the backing sheet along one end of the tape and adhere across the top of an A4 sheet of white card. Slowly peel away the backing, as you use your hand to smooth the washi tape down on to the card. Once the backing has been fully removed, you can burnish the washi to ensure there are no air bubbles or creases.
