I am here to share a shiny card for the Christmas Kickstart - Rainbow Christmas challenge.
I had to think about this one....how to incorporate rainbow colors into a Christmas card....Hmmmm. I happened to have a rainbow paper pad out for a different project and leafing through it found a gorgeous foiled piece that I thought would be perfect. Yes, you heard it correctly. I pulled out a brand-new gorgeous uncut piece of cardstock to use....not a scrap or snippet to be found on this card!
One of my crafty resolutions for 2022 is to NOT DIE before I use at least some of the pretty things in my stash!!!! lol... I do not always HAVE to use scraps. I give myself (AND YOU!!) permission to use the pretty stuff. You're welcome. ❤
I went rather CAS with this card, but attaching those fiddly thin die-cuts on the embossed background without a bunch of gloozing was harder for me than it looks! You know what I mean by gloozing...where the liquid glue oozes out from beneath the die cut. I've tried cutting these out with adhesive sheets, but I get adhesive webs that I have to clear out. Ugh..reminds me of spiders!! Eeek.
The rainbow tree has little mini-dots on it, so I used a dotty embossing folder for the background, too, that reminds me of snow falling. I love how this turned out.
Supplies used include:
Clearly Besotted -Tree and Tinsel dies (retired)
Poppystamps - Fancy Merry Christmas die (retired)
Darice - Dot Background 5"x7" embossing folder (retired)
