Don't you love to see a rainbow in the sky after a rain! Today's card was designed using the Joset Designs Rainbow Sky dies and one of the A Way With Words Sentiments.
The frame for this card was created using Els van de Burgt's Square Stitched and Fitted Frame dies. Using a piece of 5 3/4 inch blue card stock, the largest Stitched frame die was centered and die cut an opening to create a frame that was attached on top of another piece of 5 3/4 inch card stock, using dimensional tape for dimension. Using the next largest Stitched Frame, a background piece was added in the center. I like how the little dotted stitches give it some texture. One of the dies in the Els van de Burgt Corners 1 set was used to die cut four white corners.
The Rainbow was die cut using Soft Finish Cardstock. The rainbow die cuts individual half circles to create the rainbow, therefore it is very easy to color each circle. I used Distress Inks and sponged on the color. I really like the texture of the Soft Finish Cardstock. It is not necessary, but I glued the rainbow together over a scrap piece of card stock, so I could attach it with dimensional tape.
The clouds were die cut using the cloud dies from the Rainbow Sky die set. Light blue ink was sponged around the edges and they were attached with dimensional tape. To make the card "dreamy" I used the A Way With Words die cut "Dream" sentiment.
All the new die sets are now available from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
