I love rainbows. This card was so much fun to combine a rainbow of colors for a thank you card!
I started with an A2 sized piece of white cardstock and began stamping away moving the cardstock up and over ¼ inch at a time to create the background. I could not be without my Misti! I continued this pattern both up and over and down and over until the entire background was covered!.
I chose the sentiment strip from the Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL set. I started stamping near the center of both the Misti and the card base. Reactive Ink colors used are: Grape Slush, Blue Hawaii, Pool Party, Green Apple, Lemon Drop, Creamsicle and Berry Smoothie. What a wonderful rainbow of sentiments created!
I wanted to layer the "thanks" die from the set with matching color cardstock. To accomplish this, I colored strips of white cardstock using the Reactive ink pads direct to the cardstock.
Once all the strips were colored, I die cut the word from the colored strips.
Check out how cool the "thanks" sentiment layered with the colors in rainbow order, each layered slightly to the left and up! I trimmed down the sentiment background to allow a frame of teal paper to show, accenting the top layer of the sentiment!
Finally, a rainbow card deserves bling! These confetti sequins gave the perfect sparkle to the card.
