You’re Amazing – Rainbow Hearts Background



This card was made for the Simon Says Stamp card challenge #22. The challenge is to incorporate rainbow colors in your project.

For my project, I made a card larger than the standard A2 size. The card front is about 5.25” wide by 5.75” long. The reason for doing this is that I didn’t want to trim down all my rainbow color blending!

I started by prepping a six-inch square of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock for the front of the card with an embossing buddy.  I stamped the card front with the SSS Drawn Heart background stamp inked with Versamark Ink. The inked card front was then heat embossed using Hero Arts white embossing powder.

I then started ink blending the front of the card in rainbow hues with Distress Inks. The colors I used (from top to bottom) were: Abandoned Coral (love this new color!), Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron (love this summery green!), Peacock Feathers, and Dusty Concord.

I trimmed the front down to 5.25” by 5.75” to get rid of all the “scraggly” embossed edges and mounted the front onto a 5.5” by 6.00” black card base. Note: I had to rig a card base from 2 pieces of black cardstock for the final unfolded base to be 5.5” x 12”.

The sentiment “You’re Amazing” is SSS’s You’re Amazing wafer thin die. The sentiment was die cut 3 times from black cardstock and the 3 layers glued on top of each other with Ranger Multi Matte Medium. A charcoal-colored sequin was used to dot the “I” in the word “amazing” and 3 red-colored confetti heart sequins were glued around the entire sentiment for emphasis.
