Summer, sparkles and rainbows! What better way to bring a smile to a friend’s face than a handmade rainbow card. The Cut Cardstock Pop Tone cardstock is perfect for this project! I used the 65# and it was perfect for die cut layering and comes in so many beautiful colors!
For this card, I used Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Gumdrop Green, Blue Raspberry and Grape Jelly. I love these beautiful and vibrant colors – perfect for a rainbow!
I found a pull apart rainbow stamp in my stash, as well as a matching die. Some Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder was a perfect pairing to finish off this sparkly, happy card.
The die also cuts out the outline that allows you to perfectly place all the rainbow strips – as well as another chance to add sparkle to the card! I used the Silver glitter cardstock to cut out the outline that I will use to place all the rainbow pieces. This die has spaces for more strips in the rainbow than I was going to use, so I just snipped off the part that I didn’t want for this project and it left the perfect outline!
I used a piece of double sided adhesive to help put this rainbow together easier. I first put the outline on the adhesive and trimmed around the edges and then was able to just inlay each strip of the rainbow. This will be perfect for when I need to adhere this to my card base, because all I need to do is take the backing off of the back of the rainbow and that is covered in adhesive as well!
I made a sky background by ink blending some light blue ink with cloud stencils right onto my card base, which is a pre cut and pre scored A2 card base – 110#. I love these card bases – it is so nice to have them already cut and scored, and they are scored perfectly!
To finish, I added a sentiment and adhered my rainbow on to the card base and added a few clouds that were die cut from the Pop-tone Sweet Tooth cardstock.
Wishing you a colorful, rainbow day!
