I’m sharing two cards that both offer a colorful rainbow on the front. Both rainbows are unique and are from different sets. I’m using the following Simon Says Stamp products from the Rainbows release:
Bright Stripes Rainbow Card
This 5″ X 7″ card starts with a card base made from Neenah 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. The front panel is cut from Canson XL Bristol Smooth watercolor paper. I brushed on a set of red to pink watercolor strokes using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors (48) on the paper for a background. Once the stripes were dry, I splattered intense red watercolor paint for added interest.
I stamped, colored and cut out the cute rainbow from the Hello Sunshine stamp set . I added two clouds colored in BG02, BG01, and B00. The rainbow was colored in R29, R14, R83, R81, BG49, BG11. YG21, YG00.
I stamped and heat embossed the phrase from the same set on the front and attached the rainbow using Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares. Lastly, I added sequins in light aqua and teal to accent the front. The card front was attached to the card base to finish the card.
Celebrate Rainbow Slimline Card
For this 3-1/2″ wide X 8- 1/2″ tall slimline card, I started by stenciling the stars using Distressed Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon on a light aqua cardstock. I added faux white stitches around the larger stars.
I used the rainbow from the You Are Loved stamp set and coordinating die set. I colored the rainbow using Yg00, YG03, R22 and R14. I also stamped and die cut the “celebrate” rectangle and added it to the front of the rainbow. With the slimline card being so long, I thought it would be fun to add baker’s twine to the ends and allow them to hang freely. I attached them to the back of the rainbow and attached the rainbow to the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares.
Sequins finish of the look on the front. I attached the front to a white card base made from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock.
