Happy Rainbows



Hi everyone,

It’s my turn to post a project over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today.  For my card today I decided to create a birthday card using the new Rainbow Sky die set from the Joset Designs range of dies. I think everyone is happy when they see a rainbow, especially if they discover what is at the end of the rainbow so this makes a fun birthday card. For a little bit of extra fun I decided to make my rainbow glittery!

Here’s how I created my card

1. Cut a piece of red cardstock so it measures 5 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches. Score along the 8 1/2 inch side at 4 1/4 inches and fold card in half. This will be the base for our card.

2.  Using the second largest die from the Stitched Rectangles die set, die cut a rectangle using White Soft Finish Cardstock 100Lb. Sponge around the edge of the rectangle using blue ink. Adhere rectangle to red base card.




3.  Cut a piece of white card approx 4 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches (large enough to fit rainbow). Cover the front of the card with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Die cut Rainbow, so that the adhesive is on the front when die cut.
  • Remove protective backing from each of the die cut pieces. Cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, brush off excess and polish glitter with your finger to bring out the maximum sparkle.
  • Color the arches of the rainbow in the following colours starting from the outer arch and working in towards the centre. Red; Orange; Yellow; Green; Blue; Indigo and Violet.
  • Cover piece of white card big enough to fit rainbow with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Remove protective backing and start positioning the arches from the rainbow onto the adhesive until you have your completed rainbow. Trim around edges.
  • Attach rainbow to left hand side of card referring to photo above for placement.
4. Die cut 2 large and 1 small cloud from White Soft Finish Cardstock, sponge around edges using blue ink and position on card as per photo above.
  • Die cut sun and circle from White Soft Finish Cardstock, sponge or color yellow and position on card as per photo above.

5.  Cut a piece of red cardstock 2 1/2 inches x 11 inches, cover the back of the cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Die cut the word "happy" 3 times. Layer each word together and adhere to the lower right hand side of card.



6. The inside of the card:
  • Using the second largest die from the Stitched Rectangles die set, die cut a rectangle using White Soft Finish Cardstock 100Lb. Adhere panel to inside of card.
  • Cut a piece of red cardstock 2 1/2 inches x 4 inches, cover the back of the cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Die cut the word "birthday" and adhere to the lower right hand side of card.
  •  Die cut 1 large and 1 small cloud from White Soft Finish Cardstock, sponge around edges using blue ink and position to the top left hand side of card as per photo above.
