Rainbow hello!

Hi there!

One of my favorite challenges is back after Summer, and I couldn't resist the gorgeous rainbow inspiration photo they have this week!

Yes it's The card concept !

As most of my cards, this one falls in the clean and simple graphic category.

Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge has a CAS challenge going on this week, adding my link there as well :)

I used only (Silhouette) die cuts so am adding my link to the Happy little stampers anything goes with dies challenge.

Here it is:


hello rainbow card

... and a closer look:

hello rainbow card



I designed the cutting file in the Silhouette studio ( I use the Designer edition).

I started off with one large circle and used the internal offset function to create the smaller circles. I copied the stack of offset circles, rotated 45 degrees, and cropped it to a rectangular shape. I then cut every ring in a different rainbow color. I glued it to the card base and added the sentiment, cut in black and layered it over an offset cut from vellum.

The sentiment is this week's free file from the Silhouette online store Design ID #150293. I only used the 'hello' part of it.

Enamel dots to finish off the design.



                                             


Thanks for visiting me today !

I love your rainbow circles, but I REALLY love that sentiment with a vellum shadow. I definitely need to use vellum more. Every time I see it on a card, I am reminded of the difference it can make in a design.

Is the Silhouette company aware of your expertise and unlimited creative ideas using their machine? If not, someone needs to point them in your direction cuz you are rocking this little rig!!!

Definitely my new #1 favorite Hannelie card EVER! Love the cool offset velum shading on the sentiment and the 'happy, happy, happy' mood that you've created on your card :)
