A shiny rainbow to welcome a new bundle of joy is the theme of my project today.  I love all the options you have with Avery Elle’s Rainbows stamp set and matching die set for making colorful greetings.  

For today’s project, I used the rainbow die to cut multiple pastel colored pieces of card stock.  Since my card stock was thinner, I used two at a time and ran them through my Gemini for quicker cutting.

When I had all my rainbow stripes cut out, I chose a color scheme and fitted the pieces back into one of the pieces of card stock I cut into and backed it with white card stock.

Since I wanted to clear heat emboss my rainbow stripes, this made it easier to add VersaMark ink to all the stripes at once.

After heat embossing the panel with the inlaid stripes using clear embossing powder, I stamped the rainbow from the stamp set onto a white card stock panel using Delicata Silver ink.  Then, I added holographic embossing powder and heat embossed the image to add a little sparkle.

Using Scotch foam tape trimmed down to strips, I added my rainbow stripes to the stamped image.  If you peel the backing off the tape strips before adding them to the stripes, you can easily curve them to fit.  

With the rainbow completed, I die cut the cloud from the die set and added that to the stamped cloud outline with more foam tape.  For the sentiment, I stamped and cut out the Welcome from the Letter It Baby stamp set and added that along the edge of the cloud.  Another sentiment stamped on the cloud below completes the card along with a heart sticker from my collection.  

The great thing about this die set, is that after cutting out the different colors of card stock, you can mix and match more rainbows for extra cards.  Thanks so much for joining me today!
