Sunshine & Rainbows cards tutorial

 How to easily create 2 quick cards like these ones.


1.  Take an 8 ½” x 11” sheet of Basic White Cardstock

-Score in half at 4 ¼” and then flip it & cut in half at 5 ½”, fold to create 2 card bases.

2.  Choose a sheet of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6" x 6" DSP Pack (Free with a $60 purchase during the Jan-Feb 2022 Sale-a-Bration offer.)

-You’ll want 2 vertical pieces measuring 3” x 4 ½”, so make sure you pay attention to your DSP pattern if it makes a difference which way you cut it, if so, then cut it in a way that the images are vertical.  The sheet should be standing with the 4 ½’’ tall.

3.  Now choose coordinating color of cardstock that will go with your DSP design. (Look at the back of your paper pack for the names of the coordinating colors)

-Cut 2 pieces of this cardstock at 3 ¼” x 4 ¾” (1 for each card, you can do 2 different colors too if you want).  I used Polished Pink & Mango Melody cardstock.

4. Glue your 2 pieces of DSP onto these 2 pieces of Cardstock and adhere these panels onto your 2 White cardbases, placing them towards the left side, leaving the same amount of space on top, left & bottom.

5.  From the leftover piece of Cardstock, cut 2 strips at ½’’ x 2 ¾” and glue it on your cardfront on the top right side about 2’’ down from the cardbase, leaving about ½’’ from the right edge.

6.  Stamp a greeting with any coordinating ink color onto a scrap of white cardstock.  Cut this out using the Cloud punch.  And place it on the center of your strip with Dimensionals.

7.  Add embellishments.  I colored BasicRhinestones with my Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends.

I'd love to encourage you to make your own cards by using any color of paper & supplies you have at home!  I'd like to give credit to Sharon Burkert for the inspiration for these cards that I cased from her blog here.  She does beautiful projects, I love her style!
