Good Monday morning, stamping friend! If you’re in the U.S., I hope that you’re enjoying your Memorial Day long weekend. Here in Canada, we had our Victoria Day long weekend last weekend! So, we all get our turn. Today I want to share with you another rainbow card, created with strips of cardstock. Last week I shared this one with the Blah Bunny; if you missed it, be sure to take a look – and have a giggle!
Today’s card is for a birthday; with all the bright colours, would wouldn’t like to receive this card?
I had strips of cardstock left over from last week’s card which I used. Apply the strips in rainbow order (ROYGBIV) with liquid glue onto a base of 4″ x 5 1/4″; cut off any excess. Stamp the 2 balloons in Versamark ink, cover with white embossing powder, and heat set. Add the balloon strings in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Die cut the word celebrate from black cardstock 4 times (yes, 4!). Stack each die cut on top of the other, attaching them together with liquid glue. I used a ‘Quickie Glue Pen’ for a neat application. Now attach the stacked die cuts across the middle of the front panel on an angle, again using the liquid glue.
This picture above shows the nice extra ‘oomph’ you get when stacking the die cuts.
Finish it off by adding the bottom part of the sentiment in Versamark ink, and again emboss it in white embossing powder. Now attach your card front to a panel of bright green cardstock, and then onto a black card base. Using the black for the card base helps tie all of the colours together, and lets the colours ‘pop’ even more. Of course, you’ll want to add a panel of white cardstock to the inside, for writing your message!
