Hello Stampers! I hope everything is going well in your world. We’ve had a couple of nice snows here in Kentucky. I know most people aren’t crazy about snow, but I LOVE IT!! Of course, it’s the perfect time to stay inside and stamp. And that’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve been playing with the Rainbow of Happiness bundle to create a project that will last all year.
Rainbow of Happiness Bundle
The Rainbow of Happiness Bundle comes with a great stamp set and coordinating rainbow dies. But instead of using the dies for this project, I used the coordinating cloud punch. I also used a strip of the Sunshine and Rainbows DSP (designer series paper) that is FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration.
A calendar card is a great gift for the new year. It’s small enough to sit on your desk, nightstand, or anywhere else you need a calendar. The fold for this card is very simple, but it allows the card to stand up.
To create this simple easel fold, cut a Melon Mambo card base to 4 1/4″ x 11″. That’s a half sheet of cardstock cut vertically. Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. Fold the card in half on the 5 1/2″ fold. Place glue or other adhesive on the INSIDE between the two score lines and seal the card shut. Gently fold the bottom section back on the other score line, but not completely. Just enough to stand your card. If you fold back completely, your card may not stand up.
The Rainbow of Happiness stamp set has separate stamps for each arch of the rainbow, so it’s easy to make a colorful rainbow. I fussy cut the rainbow. It was easy, just a gentle curve around the outside and the small arch inside.
The Basic White background panel is embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The clouds are punched from Basic White and embossed with the splatters folder from the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folders set.
I stamped the greeting in Bermuda Bay on Basic White and cut it with a small die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set. The calendar is adhered to a Bermuda Bay rectangle.
To finish it off, I adhered Basic Rhinestones colored with the Bermuda Bay Blends.
