I was playing with some new paper today and kept seeing rainbows again so I decided to pull out the Lil' Inkers Dies and try something different. I have had an idea in my head since I first ordered these dies to make a 3D rainbow of sorts by cutting the die cuts and layering them so that each layer is higher then the one before. This card was the first result of that experiment.
Can you see how the rainbow pops? Each layer is just slightly overlapped.
I cut each section of rainbow into 11/16" rectangle pieces. I found it was easiest to first adhere the rainbow to a piece of cardstock and then cut the white space away with scissors. This gave the rainbow stability and kept each section together. Then, I used a different thickness of dimensionals on each section. The section at the bottom I adhered directly to the cloud patterned paper (thanks Deb for this fun, fun paper!!). Each section after that was popped up to create the 3Dish staircase look.
For those of you who haven't seen what the Lil' Inker Rainbow & Cloud dies look like, here is a graphic of them. You can also find more information here.
For the tag, I had to use some of the Twinery's Pink Sorbet twine! LOVE that twine!! The tag is from PTI's Tiny Tag set and I stamped it with a circle from the Boy Basics: Simple Circles set to get the stripes that mimic the rainbow. The sentiment is from the Lil' Inker Designs Rainbows & Clouds stamp set. That font is so cute!
I'm addicted to that glitter paper too! I think it makes the cutest clouds!
I'm entering this in the Wee Memories challenge to make a summertime card!
Well, I better get to watching Star Wars! Hope you all have a very wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
