Rainbow Day

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. It's a brand new month, but I am continuing as challenge hostess this month.

Monday 3rd April is Rainbow Day ... So let's make rainbow cards this week. Note you don't have to include a real rainbow unless you wish .... create a card with multiple colors. It's up to you whether you stick to true rainbow colors or not.

For my card I decided to go with true Rainbow colors .... Red; Orange; Yellow; Green; Blue; Indigo and Violet. I used the second smallest banner from the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners die set to die cut a banner from each color and then adhered that to card and cut off the fishtail and the stitching from the ends.

For the larger fishtail on the front of the card  used two of the Fishtail Border dies to cut the fishtail edge at the end of the card. I love that you can make your fishtail banner any size you like.

I decorated the tag using the Birthday Beauty stamp set from Loralie Art Stamps.

For the inside of the card I created a pop up card using the Pop it Ups Anita Frames Pop Up which I die cut from white cardstock. For the rainbow panels on the side of the card, I die the same as I did on the front of the card and then cut it down the middle.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
