Make a cute, whimsical rainbow card very easily by using oval diecuts, this card is sure to bring a smile to your gift recipient. I like to make a bunch of these at once so that I have a stack of rainbow cards ready for the month of March!
Supplies you will need:
- Tangerine Machine with plates
- Mixed Scalloped and Straight Oval Layering Die Set
- V Blade Trimmer
- Tim Holtz 5 inch Mini snips
- Nuvo Glitter Accent – Fresh Snowfall
- Cardstock in rainbow colors
- White Cardstock
To begin, I die cut ovals from rainbow colored cardstock using the Oval Layering Die Set. The ovals are perfect to make a rainbow, but you could also use a stacking circle die set for this.
Once Die cut, I easily layered and glued all of the ovals to form a stack in rainbow order.
To turn the ovals into rainbow arcs, I simply cut the stack of ovals in the center using the V Blade trimmer. Hold the stack of the ovals in one hand and run the trimmer blade back and forth a couple of times in the same place to make sure you cut through all of the layers.
And thats how easy it was to create two rainbows for two rainbow cards! To finish off my rainbows, I hand cut a few cloud shapes from white cardstock using the Tim Holtz 5 inch Mini snips. This handy little scissor makes cutting shapes very easy!
At this point I felt the rainbow needed some sparkle or shine. I reached for my trusty Nuvo drops and chose the Nuvo Glitter Accent – Fresh Snowfall to add a white sparkle and shimmer to the clouds. I first like to outline the cloud shape and then fill it in with the glitter accent. Let the glitter dry and your Rainbow card is ready!
I simply love how the glittery clouds turned out! Because we die cut the ovals for the rainbow, this is a card design that is super easy to mass produce for a class or as an invite!
I hope this rainbow card brought a little color and cheer into your day friends! Happy Crafting!
