I'll be creating 3 fun rainbow cards.

20210517 125458 1 1

I started by cutting the dies from Color Bands Die Set from white cardstock. After cutting the whole 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece, I ended up with 8 of each of the 4 dies to create 8 rainbows. I then went ahead and added color to each die cut using ink and blending tools. For the largest band I used Cotton Candy and Pink Pearl Inks, the 2nd band was colored using Sunkissed and Buttercream Inks, for the 3rd band I used Sweet Leaf and Mountain Mist Inks and the smallest on was colored with Dew Drops and Wisteria Inks.

Once these were colored I then went ahead and added these into place onto 3 separate cards. My plan at the start was to create 1 all over background, but as I had so many die cuts I decided to create more as I didn't want to waste them. I just love how each card turned out!

For the sentiments I used Sisters Of The Heart Stamp Set.
