Craftin Desert Divas April Release is almost upon us…and while the teasers have been fun…the official sneak peaks are here.
Today I am sharing not one, but two cards I made using the upcoming and new Rainbow Dies.
I knew I wanted to make a card with a rainbow of colors, and not inside the die, so I cut half inch stripes of paper from the Doodlebugs Designs paper pad, and adhered them to some card stock with my favorite adhesive, 1/4″ scor tape. Then I ran not only this sheet, but a plain sheet of card stock through my die cutting machine. Suddenly, I had not one card in the making, but two.
For the first card, I took the rainbow stripped paper, and the white rainbow and clouds. I decided to make a shaker card out of this one, so I added some acetate to the back of the color strip paper and positioned the clouds and the rainbow die cuts onto an A2 frame. Then I added some X-Press It Foam Mounting Tape and added a bunch of Twinkle Sequins inside. I assembled the sandwich together, making a rather lovely shaker (I am not normally good at these, let’s be honest). I wanted a fun sentiment, so I stamped out one from the Be Inspired sentiment stamp pack and die cut it with a die from the Tag Essentials die set and adhered it.
For the second card, I found out that the stripes of colored paper from the other card actually left a kind of cool line embossing on the white piece of card stock. So I simply added it to an A2 frame, and added the clouds and rainbow dies cuts from the other paper back in. I wanted a few rain drops and found the perfect ones from a left stamp from the Build A Scene stamp pack. The sentiment came from the This and That stamp pack.
Hope you enjoyed this sneak peak at the new CDD die set. It will be released on the CDD store on the 20th.
