So many beautiful colors!! 3 Cards with Gradient Cardstock Rainbow Background | Lydia’s Crafty Corner (VIDEO)

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing a fun idea for a rainbow background. You can use any cardstock you have but I'll be using the some of the Gradient Cardstock Packs.

To start I took Ruby Red, Caramel Toffee, Warm Sunshine, Just Green, Deep Iris and Puffy Heart Cardstock from various Gradient Cardstock Packs. I cut them length ways to create 1/4″ strips. I then adhered these to a panel of white cardstock using glue tape.

For the first card I stamped the large image from Exotic Garden Stamp Set onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ rainbow panel using Embossing Ink. I heat set this using Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.  To make the image pop a little more I covered the whole panel using white pigment ink.

For the second card I stamped the same image using Embossing Ink but this time I used Pure White Embossing Powder to heat set. I cut this piece through the image and used the larger piece on a card base.

For the third card I stamped the image onto my card base using Obsidian Ink. I then used the waste rainbow piece from the second card to join the images. I have to say this is my favorite of the three cards.

I finished of the three cards with a sentiment from Across The Pond Stamp Set.

Great video. Was wondering why you were leaving the long edges of the strips, until you cut and reused them.
