Thoughtful Blooms Rainbow...

AHHHHH!  I made a card today!  🙌 I have to admit...I have been STRUGGLING with all this worry/virus/shut-in/change/canceling/etc.  Motivation hasn't be the easiest for me.  BUT...I promised I would craft today, so I went to my craft room.  It just took going into my room for me to remember why I needed to do this today!  It definitely gave my heart a boost and I am excited I have a card to share with you today!!

Rainbow was the one thing that came to my mind to do.  We all need a little hope right now, right?!  And that's what rainbows are for me...a sign of hope that there is light after the storm.  💖


So how did I make this rainbow?!  Well I used this fabulous Sale-A-Bration stamp set called, Thoughtful Blooms.  I have used this stamp set A TON, but have mostly used the flowers.  This time I used this stamp:

Don't you just LOVE this stamp set!  Just a few more days to earn it FREE!!!!  Or any of the other Sale-A-Bration options!!!  Click below to check them all out!!!  Including the Small Bloom Punch that I also used on this card.  I LOVE LOVE this too!!! 😍😍😍



So I stamped the image in rainbow order...inking it up with a different color each time.  Then after, I took an Aqua Painter and colored in the image with the same color I stamped it with.  (In order ... Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape)  Then I also embossed a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and sewed it onto the front of the card.


I also really love this ribbon, the Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon from the 
MINI CATALOG.  Personally...I think it is the perfect touch to this card. 


And how much fun are the fun white blooms?  😀


I hope you enjoy this card!  And feel that there is a little hope that this craziness will end at some point.  Please stay safe and healthy!  Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
