Hello friends and happy Fri-YAY!  I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead.  This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here today sharing a bright and colorful rainbow themed card that is actually very simple to make!  I love it when a card comes together so easily.  I initially thought of making all the leaves varying shades of green and having it be a sympathy card, but I like the fun rainbow colors instead, which could work for a variety of occasions.

Card details: 

The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of the same white cardstock for the first mat.  I printed off the leaves from the Modern Duets digital stamp set.  It is all the exact same leaf, I simply printed it five times at 3 1/2″ x 1 1/4″.  I colored each leaf in a ROYGBIV (minus the indigo) color palette and then I fussy cut each leaf out.  Okay, so yes, this was the stinky part of the entire card (particularly if you loathe fussy cutting), but fortunately I don’t mind it at all. In fact, I find it quite cathartic!  I adhered the leaves to the bottom of the card.  I stamped the sentiment “hello my friend” using the Thankful For You stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a thin strip of black cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and then I adhered it to the top center of the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the leaves for added sparkle.  *Pro Tip – ALWAYS add sparkle!  : )

I hope that this colorful card brings a smile to your day!  Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!  For more inspiration, you can follow me on my websiteInstagramFacebook and on my YouTube channel.

XO, Crystal
