Hello Rainbow Card
by Janet Katz

PS Rainbow Hello1
Hello, indeed! There is still time to enter our monthly challenge and win a $20 gift card from the Poppystamps store. The theme is pretty papers and that includes patterned paper, vellum, glitter cardstock or even a brushed metallic paper like I've used on today's card. You can even stamp your own background and make it a paper to use in our challenge. Let's see what you've got.
I love the new Poppystamp Freestyle word dies. They're the perfect size and weight for any size card and they all come with a shadow background die. I started by picking out 11 different cardstock colors to make into a rainbow. I decided to raid years of scraps to get just what I was looking for.

I die cut the Freestyle Hello shadow 11 times for the image I was going for. For the card front, I wanted a solid colored background, but still something more unique than flat cardstock. I chose a brushed metal-looking cardstock from my stash, and used the Memory Box Waves 3D embossing folder to give it plenty of dimension. Next, I glued down each shadow die cut, in rainbow order from the top of the card to the center. I let the red one hang off the top and trimmed it to give the sense of a never-ending rainbow. I had to carefully plan out how much of each would show and then glue one on top of the other in just the right place. I eyeballed it, but used a ruler to keep the shadows straight on the left side. Finally, I adhered my white Hello on the last shadow. I used a variety of rhinestones and Fairy Jewels to give the card front some sparkle.

Now, it is your turn to pull out some fun paper (or make your own), and a Poppystamps die or stamp and show us what you come up with. You might just win that $20 gift card.

Hi Janet, I love this sentiment die set, and it is brilliant that the set comes with a 'mat'. I love your card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
