Happy Sunday and I am so glad your joining me today for the next AAA Cards Challenge!
“Someday, I wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow
And the dreams that you dare to
Oh why, oh why can’t I?”
I am from India and we burst out into songs just like that.. Bollywood style …Lol!!
The theme this fortnight is … yup you got that right… “Somewhere over the rainbow”
There is something magical about a rainbow and i wanted to capture that in my card. Here’s my take:
For my card I first stamped these adorable image of the rainbow with clouds and unicorn from the ‘Be a Unicorn’ stampset by Avery Elle on to nenah solar white cardstock (Copic friendly paper) with black memento ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics lovely rainbow colors. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies.
I then die cut two windows in a white card front and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set. I ink blended a panel with distress inks in such a way that they form the background for the window openings, which i adhered to the card front with foam tape for dimension.
I finally adhered the colored images with foam squared inside the windows. As a finishing touch I added two hearts near the sentiment. I then adhered the whole panel to a white card base.
In case of my card, using the windows helped my maximize the empty space for a CAS look. I love the burst of colors against the white. That’s, i think, is the best part of rainbow theme with a CAS design.
I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).
