Hello friends! We’re having another bit of snow this morning so I wanted to pop in and share some rainbows and happiness with you. My daughter and I are dreaming of summer and sunny days so this card definitely comes from that mind set.
I used the new Trinity Stamps Ray Bow die set to create a fun see through front card. I started by cutting the rainbow rays from white cardstock and used blending brushes to add color to each one. Then I took a top fold A2 size card and used the cloud border die in the set to cut the front short. Using the rest of the card front, I cut another matching cloud strip, plus a second set for the bottom too.
I chose my sentiment from the Simply Sentimental – You stamp and die set. I stamped and cut the banner for the second part of the sentiment and die cut “you” from black and silver glitter cardstock. Now to assemble everything.
I glued the rays to the back of the short flap on the card front and then glued the second layer of clouds behind that. It keeps everything more secure and looks nicer on the inside too. Following the rays to the bottom I glued another set of matching cloud borders to that end as well. Next, I used foam squares and strips to add the sentiment to the rays.
After using the excess from the front panel to cut those extra strips of clouds, I ended up with a scrap that had different cloud formations on each side. I used that as a stencil to ink light cloud borders all the way down the inside of the card. Then I added a sentiment from Newton’s Nook on the inside.
