Hi, Friends! It’s Caly with you today sharing a rainbow card using the Concord & 9th Rainbow Stitches and Strings set! I love yarn/string wrapped rainbows and have made them – check out the video if you want to see what those look like! The dies from the Rainbow Stitches and Strings set mimic the look, but I couldn’t help but wrap it anyway.
If you’re interested in seeing how it’s done, I have a quick video to share with you!
I die-cut the rainbow bands using C9 cardstock, ink-blended it give it some shading, then wrapped the top bands with matching embroidery floss. The coordinating C9 cardstock and ink colors used today are Grapefruit, Buttercup, and Sea Glass. I used a bit of Wheat ink on the fringes too. I made a second card showing you what it looks like without embroidery floss too.
What do you think? Which one do you like better? With or without floss? It’s fussy with the floss, but I think it adds a lot of interest. I added foam adhesive between the bottom and top bands to give it lots of dimension, then I added the fringe at the bottom of the rainbows.
Before adding the rainbow to a card panel, I stamped the sentiment first over cream cardstock.
I finished by attaching this panel to a card base. Super clean and simple, in my opinion, but the rainbow gives so much texture and color and I love how it turned out. I hope you like it too!!! Thanks so much for visiting today! ~Caly
