If you ever want to make a rainbow with card then Papermilldirect card is the card to use. With every colour under the sun, making a rainbow is easy. The hard part is deciding if you want to make a traditional rainbow, or have some fun with the colours. I had a bit of fun with this rainbow. I used:
- Papermilldirect Hammered White Card
- Papermilldirect Slate Grey Card
- Papermilldirect Celestial Blue Card
- Papermilldirect Celestial Blue Card Blank
- Papermilldirect Intensive Pink Card
- Papermilldirect Mandarin Orange Card
- Papermilldirect Daffodil Yellow Card
- Papermilldirect Shamrock Green Card
- Papermilldirect Lavender Card
- Papermilldirect Plain Black Card
I started my card by creating a panel of card to mat onto the card blank. I created this in the same Celestial Blue as the card blank. I used a raindrop stencil and Peacock Feathers distress ink to stencil the pattern onto the card.
I stamped a birthday sentiment in the same colour ink and cut this out in a strip.
I cut out a rainbow on my Silhouette cutting machine, but you can use a die, or print and cut or just print. My rainbow had lots of detail and a cute cloud with face and a 'silver lining'. It took a while to put together, but it is a good activity to put on a YouTube video or podcast and relax while you craft away! I love how cute the end result is.
I added my stenciled panel onto the card base, and added the rainbow onto this using foam pads.
I added my sentiment banner and some fun yellow dots and it was done. I love how cute the little rainbow cloud is!
