and welcome to the Craft Collab's Jill Cameron Creations Encouragement and Social Distancing Blog Hop. I went wild with these Rainbow Hugs, Thank You and Hello cuts. I paired them with glitter card bases for a real impact.
I often find with rainbow cuts, it makes since to make the cuts in all seven rainbow colors. I pretty much did that and layered the various colors on a colored base layer. I mixed up the layers of the sentiments as well.
So with all those layers, I obviously created multiple cards. I had a stash of glitter card bases that worked great with these bright rainbow colors. Glitter and glue is always an adhesion issue. I have found that using red lined tape generously will create the best hold.
This closer look shows a silver lining. I cut the cloud silver. Then I created an additional cloud that I made just a fraction smaller which I cut in white.
This was actually the first card I created prior to my bright idea for a silver lining. I really think it added a neat element to the cards. This particular card seems to have just a little less impact.
I tried to use colors in my rainbow that in our in the layers of each sentiment and match the background mat. However, this was the last card and kind of had some left over pieces and doesn't quite match as much. Still a bright and cheery card.
All the files cut wonderfully in my Cricut Maker. I sized the rainbow to approximately 3" x 3.5" so the sections are pretty thin. I layered the 3 outer pieces with a tape runner on the back. I placed it on the background mat and placed the center piece inside for a perfect fit. I finally added the two layers of clouds to complete the rainbow.
