 In honour of Pride month, June’s tutorial blog is all about rainbows! Today, I’m sharing two clean and simple (“CAS”) cards that are perfect for when you need a card in a hurry.

Supplies needed:

         White cardstock
          Rainbow Mini Shaker die
          Shaker filling (rainbow colours)
          Liquid glue
          Foam tape
          Paper trimmer
          Ink cubes in rainbow colours (I used Poppy, Buttercup, Parsley, Oceanside and Eggplant by Concord and 9th)
          Blender brushes
          Copics or other colouring medium
         MISTI or other stamping tool

Instructions – Shaker card

1. Cut a panel of white card to 5”x3.75”. From just above the centre of the panel, die cut the Rainbow mini shaker die.
2. Glue some acetate to the reverse of the panel. On the front of the panel, use liquid glue to glue the rainbow die cut on to the acetate, inside the window.
3. On the reverse of the panel, attach some double-height foam tape around the outside of the panel.
4. Take a white card blank of 5.5”x4.25” and add some rainbow coloured sequins to the centre (I used the Fabulous mix by Lucy’s Cards).
5. Attach the front panel over the top of the shaker filling, sealing it in.
6. Trim down one of the sentiments from the Brighter Days sentiment cards and attach it to the front of the card with a thin foam strip.

Instructions – Ink blended rainbow card

     1. Place the largest of the rainbow arch stamps from the Storms Don’t Last Forever stamp set into your stamp positioner.
     2. Use a small ink cube to add red colour to one end of the stamp. Using a blender brush, softly brush the edge of the ink so that it doesn’t stamp a harsh line. Stamp your card stock. Without cleaning the stamp, add some yellow ink further up the arch, but overlapping with the red. Again, brush the edges of the yellow with a blender brush, and stamp the card. Repeat with the green, blue and purple colours, spread across the arch, and you will be left with an ink-blended rainbow arch on your card.
     3. Repeat with the medium and the smaller arches.
     4. Use your stamp positioner to stamp the sentiment below the rainbow.
     5. Stamp, die cut and colour the cat from the Hey There Critters stamp and die set, and add to the card with foam tape.


So, that completes two super simple, super easy but super colourful rainbow cards! Plus, you can adapt them by changing the sentiment to make them suitable for any recipient and any occasion.

Look out for two Reels to go with these cards, which I’ll be sharing on the T4TD and my own Instagram pages over the next couple of days.
