Looking for a rainbow Earth Day card? Festive Friday is back with another challenge…and an expanded design team!
This week we are celebrating Earth Day with a Rainbow twist! I struggled with rainbow colors a few weeks ago when The Paper Players had their rainbow color challenge. I think I become too literal, and feel like I have to put ROY G BIV out there in its pure form. At any rate, I seized upon today’s opportunity to create a rainbow Earth Day card using the nifty Layering Alphabet Edgelits! Enjoy!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
I’ll admit it. I thought the Layering Alphabet Edgelits looked scary. I had great ideas when I bought them, but they sat unused for months. As I racked my brain for ideas for this challenge, I knew they would be perfect for creating a rainbow Earth Day card. I just needed to get over my fear of them. Stampin’ Up! had a great video, and as I discovered, they are not scary at all!
After creating the layers, I die cut dotted letters from the various 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper color collections, adhering them on top of their cardstock counterparts. The words “happy” and “day” were die cut using the Well Written framelits.
I felt this bold card could use a bold flower to offset the letters. The Daisy punch came to the rescue! Three blossoms were punched from Gorgeous Grape cardstock, and layered. Of course, a bold flower calls for bold bling.

The flower on today’s card reminded me of this picture taken of Muffy’s daughter, Kia. Kia resides in Lynnwood, WA with Brady the Boy. She is reminding everyone to take time to stop and smell the flowers.
