These were made a while back and I totally forgot to post them. I had a week or so of being a little obsessed with a rainbow theme, and these cards are the product of that temporary obsession. I think it all started when I was doing a project for the Tonic Studios blog post and I just didn’t know when to quit!
The first card is very similar to the card I made for that post, but I used a different punch (Martha Stewart) and put ribbon across the center instead of gems.
The strips on this one are punched using an EK Success border punch. I think I made another one just like it but lined up the punches so that they were all going in the same direction, but I must have sent that one off to someone because I can’t find it.
I tried putting the sentiment straight across, layering it on to one of the colors, using some ribbon, etc. and none of it really worked for me, so I went with a diagonal.
These two cards were made using my Silhouette machine for the zig zags/chevrons. I saw one like it online somewhere and decided to give it a try. I cut the zig zags out of white cardstock on the Silhouette and just layered some strips of color behind it. The colored dots are Hero Arts Dots, attached with mini glue dots. Fairly clean and simple, yet colorful. Now I wish I had cut more of the top layers. Since it’s almost September, I could use Autumn colors for the strips, add some die cut leaves or coordinating Hero Arts Dots, maybe cut the zig zags out of a cream colored cardstock instead of white. Hmmmm…..
That’s all I have for today. Please do leave a comment and let me know you were here
