Green Rainbows and a Pot of Gold

Filed under: Projects — March 9, 2022 @ 11:29 am

Every year I challenge myself to make a St. Patrick’s Day card from my stash of products on hand. It’s easy to make a shamrock from 3 hearts and a fussy cut stem. This year I used the Sweet Hearts dies that I played with in this post and this post. I wanted to use the Rainbow dies for my nod to green. The challenge was to make a pot for the end of the rainbow. My go-to Tasteful Labels die set was just the thing to cut a pot from gold foil and a banner for the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Set.

Note: The paper is retired – Sunshine & Rainbows from SALE-a-bration, but I do have extra packs – just contact me to purchase.

I really went crazy with the rainbows. Here are just a few more cards.

This one uses the negative, after die-cutting the rainbow. I added some punched out clouds – look how I used partial clouds to maximize the piece of Designer Paper. My rainbow is lined in the back with vellum cardstock.

Here, I added a punched out umbrella. The punch is on the Clearance Rack at a great price. If it’s gone, contact me – I try to get a few extras when my favorite things retire.

The sentiment for the above card is from the No Matter the Weather Card Kit. It’s the perfect companion to this rainy day theme, as is the Flowering Rain Boots bundle that I used in this card:

Guess how I made the boots shiny? With Shimmery Crystal Effects! I added a puddle with Smoky Slate Blends Markers.

And, last but not least, we are using the rainbow dies in class this month – contact me to purchase the class kit.

Note: The Sunny Sentiments stamp set is also a brilliant choice to use with this theme of rainy days and encouragement cards, so be sure to add it to your shopping list along with any of the other products below that look like fun.

I hope your rainy days turn into bright rainbows of color!

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson
