Hi Friends!! kel here today :) with a super fun and bright card for a very special someone!
I started with some super fun Astrobrights Cardstock. When I looked at this pack tonight I thought, this is a RAINBOW of colors to choose from, and then went "duh! Let's do a rainbow card!" And apologies for being so crazy... we just got back from an almost 2 week trip to Japan and my mind is still not quite home yet!!
I pulled the following colors because I thought they were perfect rainbow colors:
And then cut each of them down to 3.75" x 5" pieces. Then I cut that piece down into thirds, ending up with 1.25" x 5" pieces.
I ran each of those pieces through my diecut machine... And to make sure they all would line up with the same curve, I used the first piece I cut as a guide (with a little bit of washi to hold it in place!)
And then took off the guide piece before I actually die-cut... I didn't want to leave any funky extra impressions on either piece!
I totally thought I had measured correctly and ended up being wrong lol! I told you my brain was not quite home yet!! But I lined up my pieces on a piece of Eclipse Black Astrobrights Cardstock cut to a regular mat size, 4" x 5.25" starting with the purple and then working backwards to the red side.
My fix was to add an extra wave of pink! I think pink can appropriately be placed in a rainbow, don't you?? haha! The last thing I did was cut the "love" sentiment out of another piece of Eclipse Black Astrobrights Cardstock and pop it up with some squares cut into really thin strips. (P.S. - these 3D strips probably would have worked just as well, I just couldn't find them in my stash lol!)
I totally have more pieces to play with and make a few more of these cards. Love them and their fun and super bright rainbow!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make sure to stay up to date with the latest news and sales on the CutCardstock Facebook Page!!
