Happy Friday everyone! TGIF! I am so excited to share this card with you today — I think it’s one of my favorite cards I’ve made in a really long time. It features some items from the newest kit from Erin Lee Creative and this one is a stunner!
All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.
I had an idea that involved playing with the ever so popular holographic cardstock sold in her store and changing the color of it by using some inks. First, I die cut the rainbow using one of the dies that comes in the Shine Bright kit with holographic cardstock. Then, I used a rainbow array of colors from Ink on 3: Marilyn Red, Marigold Orange, Goddess Green, Peacock Blue and My Jam Purple. I pounced on the color for each rainbow stripe using a blending tool. To trap the color, I added Glossy Accents on top of each stripe separately and let them dry. Not only does it trap the color, it adds dimension to each of the rainbow stripes.
I went ahead and used that same Rainbow die to cut out the clouds out of white cardstock. I used some copic markers to add a bit of dimension to them.Also, in the kit, it has a standalone die and shadow for the No Bad Days sentiment. I cut out the words from holographic cardstock and the shadow from vellum.
For my background panel, I used one of the sun ray stencils in the kit. There’s two that can be used to layer on top of each other so you’d have two different rays of colors. For my card, I decided only to use one with Ink on 3’s Liquid Pixie dust on black cardstock. Since it’s on dark cardstock, you won’t see it until it hits the light and adds that extra bling to any card.
I absolutely love this card and the kit that I used to create it. It’s so fun and I think it’s totally worth it! I’ll be sharing additional ideas in the coming weeks using this kit as well. I’m also participating in the Shine Bright instagram hop so if you want to see more wonderful ideas, please stop by here.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
