Rainbow Flower Card – Inky Paws 198 Reminder

Cards, Newton's Nook Designs

Hello and welcome back!

For my second card with this sketch, I decided to focus on die cuts. One of my favorite die sets, the Flower Trio set, is retiring, so I wanted to highlight it before it sold out! 

To start my card, I cut six panels of white cardstock to .75in x 3in. Then, I ink blended each panel in rainbow colors. I used a mixture of Catherine Pooler and Distress Inks in these combinations:

Pink: Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink, CP Be Mine Ink, and CP Sparkling Berry Ink

Orange: CP Shea Butter, Dried Marigold Distress Ink, and CP Ginger

Yellow: CP Whipped Honey, CP Glitz, and CP Tiki Torch

Green: CP Garden Party, CP Lime Rickey, and CP Grass Skirt

Teal: Salvaged Patina Distress Ink, CP Seaglass, and CP Daydream

Purple: CP Sixteen Candles, CP Grape Crush, and CP Glam

I also used the darkest of each color and blended a scrap piece of paper going in rainbow order. Using the ink-blended scrap, I die cut some flowers and leaves using the Flower Trio Die Set

To create my card, I started by gluing the rainbow stripes onto a white A2 panel, leaving space on either side. Then, following the colored stripes, I glued the flowers and leaves. For my sentiment, I used “So many thanks” from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set and stamped it in black ink. 

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store.

Thanks for stopping by!
