St. Patrick's Day

"Incredibly Grateful For You" Rainbow Card Set

When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I always think about the rainbow. That was the inspiration to my card. But I also wanted to see if I can stretch my existing supplies so I used a stacked circle die to create my own rainbow with various cardstock colors.

Designed by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes (for all the cards)
Level: Intermediate
Size:  4 ¼" x 5 ½" per card

Mini Glue Dots® adhesive were the perfect  product to use in adhering the circles under each other. This was a fun project and because the supplies are easily accessible, you can make as many of these sets as you want.

Here's what you do:

Create the “rainbow” arches using multiple colors of cardstock and the double pierced circle die. I taped mine together so that I can create the circles all at once from one paper and that they are all equal in size. Set aside.

Cut the rectangle pierced piece from white cardstock using the biggest die in the stack set (3 ½" x 5"). Adhere the white rectangle piece of paper onto the center of a card base with Ultra-Thin Glue Dots® adhesive. Adhere the circle accents onto the top of the white paper using Mini Glue Dots®. Create a rainbow accent by combining multiple colors of circles together.

Punch out three clouds from another white piece of cardstock. Add some ink to the paper to mimic clouds by blending some aqua colored ink pad to the pieces.

Adhere two to the bottom of the “rainbow” with Ultra-Thin Glue Dots®. Adhere the third one, overlapping the two clouds using Pop Up Glue Dots®. Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the white paper.
