I'm Over the Rainbow For You!
Posted on February 14 2022
Hi friends, Kirstynn here!
Happy Valentines day! I've always loved Valentines day, probably because there is so many opportunities to craft on this holiday. I mean think about all of those hand made Valentines!
Today I'm sharing with you my own valentines day card and some tags I made to go along with it.
I started off by using this cute sentiment stamp from the Color My World set. I colored in the word "Rainbow" using some water based markers. I then used some silver glitter cardstock to matte it on. I used the 1/8 inch A2 Bacground strip die set to cut out some white strips. I just used the same water based markers to color them since I only needed one strip for each color of the rainbow. You could use colored cardstock also if that is better for you. This would be a great way to use up some scraps!
Next I really wanted to have some clouds. So, I used the Offset Slimline Stack-ables die set and cut a bunch of strips out with that beautiful scalloped edge. Then I just layered those together to make some cloud-like shapes. I tucked my rainbow strips into the clouds with some strong adhesive and Voilà!
Once I had it all in the perfect place I used the Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Topers to create a frame to go around the edge of the clouds. I used a glitter pen to add a little extra sparkle to this frame!
Lastly I added the sentiment to the middle of the rainbow. However, while I had all of the supplies out, I decided to make some cute tags for my co-workers for Valentines day. I simply stamped and colored the sentiment, matted it onto different colored cardstock and then hole punched it. I'm thinking I will tie these onto some skittles for my friends at work.
I really love having tags like this for small gifts/treats for friends and family! I hope you were all inspired today. Happy Valentines day!
