Using Yarn on a Handmade Card

Being a creative that dabbles in many mediums, I love being able to use one supply in many ways! Today, I am showing a way to use yarn in your paper projects.

You can use this technique with any card and any yarn!
These are the supplies I'm using with this card:
-Sock Yarn
-Cardstock cut to 11 by 4.25 inches (folded in half) and 5.5 by 4.25 inches
-Die cut for greeting
-Stamp for greeting
-Stamping Ink
-Distress Ink and Blending Tool
-Foam Adhesive

Here's how I did it:
1) I started by winding my yarn around the smaller piece of cardstock a few times. I adhered the ends down in the back with some regular tape. Using a few foam adhesive squares, I attached this panel to the front of the folded card.

2) With the blending tool, I used Distress Ink to color my die cut. You can skip this step if you use color cardstock for your die cut. You can also color the die cut with other mediums. When I had it colored the way I wanted, I stamped my greeting across the front.

3) Using more foam adhesive squares, I adhered my die cut to the front of the card. It's best if you put the foam squares along the top and the bottom so it doesn't try to stick to the yarn, but only to the paper on the card. 

That's it! Pretty simple, right? I would love to see how you use this to make a card. You can share your creations with us in the comments below! Thanks so much for stopping by!
