Hi friends! Angelica here, thanks so much for joining me today. I thought it would be fun to play along with this month’s Challenge. June’s theme is all about rainbows, and I couldn’t resist making my own rainbow background, using up scraps of card stock in my stash.
I started by pulling out a rainbow of card stock. I used Color Block: Gradiating Stripes Die to die-cut the stripes. I used the smaller stripes side to die-cut with, then arranged the stripes in a rainbow order on my desk. I glued the pieces to printer paper, changing up the sizes for a different look. Once I finished, I trimmed the panel, then made a white frame for it.
I started with Essentials: Blanket Stitched Rectangle Die to make the top frame. I used a rectangle die from Essentials: Stitched Rectangle Frames to die-cut the inside frame. I attached the frames together, glued the finished frame to the rainbow background, and adhered it to a card base.
To break up the white on white frame a bit, I added a couple roses and petals from Grant Yourself Grace stamp set. I gold heat-embossed the images onto vellum, and used the coordinating die to die-cut the images. I attached them to the card with clear foam tape.
My last step was the sentiment. I picked Lot’s Of Love die set, die-cutting gold glitter paper with the shadow die, and white cardstock three times with the words die. I stacked and glued the letters together, then attached the sentiment to the card.
Be sure to stop by the Pinkfresh Studio Challenge Blog for more details on this month’s challenge, and enter your project for a chance to win! That’s all that I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Beautiful card. I just purchased the Lots of Love die. I will definitely try this technique.
I love this card. The rainbow is gorgeous and shows off the sentiment perfectly. 🤩
