Rainbows n Ribbons

Hello Y’all!

I am back with another CAS card. I haven’t had a chance to use ribbons in any of my cards in quite a while. So, I had decided that whichever card I would make next would definitely have ribbons.

Rainbow Bday Card

The card measures 6 x 5 inches. The white panel measure 5.5 x 4.5 inches.

I have used 0.5 inch wide ribbons along with Penny Black- Party Time stamp sets(cupcake and happy birthday sentiment) for making this card.

The following couple of photos will give an idea of how I achieved this look with the ribbons.

I coloured the cupcake using my Lyra colour pencils. Although initially stamped the cupcake using my ‘London Fog’ shade of Memento Ink, I re-did the cupcake outlines with my black Sharpie for sharper look.

Ribbon Weaving for Handmade Card

So here’s the work of an amateur card maker.

Handmade Card - Rainbow Colors

I know the card doesn’t have a whole lot except the whole ribbon-woven portion. But then, there are so many colors in there, that adding anything else in the card, would have made it look really tacky.

I was really confused for a while, wondering where to add the word – ‘Best Wishes’.

So the lesson learnt here is that, next time, I will do the ribbon weaving for a smaller area 😛

I decided to use satin ribbons for this handmade card because of my ever growing stash. I normally use my ribbons for jewellery making, but I have used it here for a change.

Below, you can see the whole process of how I did the ribbon weaving portion for the card.

Here’s a closer look at the hand-written sentiment and the flower.
