4th of July Rainbow Card

The focal point of this 4th of July card is the rainbow. It was made using the My Favorite Things Rainbow Whimsy die. I like to use my supplies in unexpected ways so I made a patriotic rainbow for this card. I decided to use The Pebbles Americana collection of papers to make the rainbow rather than plain red, white & blue cardstock. The patterned papers add a little more interest & detail to the card. I also love how the red, white & blue patterns pop against the stark white embossed star background. The embossed stars and wonky stitching border add texture to the card.

For some reason the embossed stars didn't photograph very well in this photo. They are actually quite raised on the cardstock as you can see in the first photo. I cut 3 layers of the rainbow, star and sentiment to add even more dimension to the card. White cardstock was used for the bottom 2 layers because I didn't want to waste the patterned papers. 


You can see the embossed stars much better in this photo. I placed a white glitter star on top of the rainbow. Once again I used 2 layers of plain white cardstock under the glitter paper to make the star chunkier.

 


To complete the card I die cut the word happy out of tiny blue and white star paper along with a number 4 out of red and white stripe paper. I used a typewriter font in Word to create the "TH." It was printed on plain white cardstock and cut to fit next to the number 4. 


There you have it! A 4th of July card using a rainbow die and a star embossing folder. I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made this card.
