This is my entry to the Polkadoodle anything goes challenge week 23 Full Detail are available here
They are also calling for new DT team members and the thought did cross my mind, but I do not think I have enough experience yet.
The full details are on the linked blog post if any you lovely crafters fancy applying. Alas I digress back to my rainbow card...
A full video showing how I made this is available on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
What I Used
1 sheet A4 Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable Card
1 Sheet White Stamping Card
Post it Notes as masks
Polkadoodle Stamp Soup Circling Around
The Craft Worka Stencil in Aspen trees
Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord
Double Sided Tape
Tough Times Charity Stamp set by Creative
Dovecraft Embossing Stamp Pad
Papermania clear embossing powder
Double Sided Tape
Spectrum Noir Finesse in Black
Square Nesting Die
Die Cutting Machine
Using the black finesse ink and the polkadoodles stamp soup I stamped a scene and masked it using post it notes
Place a strip of double sided tape down each side to.secure your stencil and place stencil over the top of the masked images
Blend the distress ink over the stencil approximate 3/4 Inch for each colour
I used festive berries, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, cracked Pistachio, salty ocean then dusty concord.
Once happy remove the stencil and the masks and trim the image to 4 1/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch.
This was mounted on a piece of green card 4 3/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch
Take the A4 card and trim to 5 1/4 Inches. Scoring at 3 3/4 Inch and 7 3/4 Inch. Fold these as a valley and then a mountain.
Using a square nesting die measuring 2 3/4 Inch cut a piece of the green card. Use the next size down die and cut a piece of white card. The card uses the sentiment 'sometimes a rainbow is better than a pot of gold' from the tough times charity stamp set by Creative. Heat emboss the sentiment in clear and colour the sentiment in the same colour order as the trees
Place this sentiment on the edge of the card in the middle and mark around it. Cut away the parts that it does not touch (see picture below)
Stick the sentiment down using double sided tape on the front edge and foam squares on the back edge. It should be slanting.
Use double sided tape to secure your rainbow image to the third folded panel and tuck it behind your sentiment to stand it up
Thank you for reading
