Cardmaking, Essentials By Ellen

7 Rainbow Card Ideas With The Essentials by Ellen Rainbow Slider

Do you love interactive cards? How about rainbow cards?

Today we have 7 fantastic interactive rainbow cards to share, including an extra special card from Ellen!

Crafting during stressful times is proven to relieve stress and help overcome anxiety. Today I found myself pacing and realized it was way past time to create a card! My plan was always to use the rainbow slider, but I didn’t know what I would pair with it to create a pot of gold. My goal was to create a joyful card that would share an uplifting message with you and lift my spirits.

Tip: Find images in your supplies that make you smile and fit your theme!

Bear to the rescue! (Julie don’t slap me – lol!) I have bear and all his accessories! I had the limited supplies I had brought with me to Junkiefest last summer and went to work creating what I could with those supplies and the fabulous Rainbow Slider Die! This is such a cool die because you can have SO many hidden messages and images to reveal as you pull to create your rainbow!

Tip: Decorate both the inside and the outside!

Stamp the message in each of the rainbow colors several times to create a bigger impact! Don’t forget to color both sides of your rainbow 🙂

Tip: During stressful times find a lesson or example that you can learn from – it will help you get back in the groove.

I followed Julie’s instructions closely for her Vertical Rainbow Slider Card. I had no shame in following the instructions and creating something similar it was so much fun doing it!

Tip: When in question add sparkle!

Diamond Stickles is still one of my absolute favorite embellishments! A little sparkle always adds that something special!

Sending giant hugs and wishes for a lucky day for you and your loved ones! -Ellen

      Thank you Maureen! We all need the encouragement and support right now that we can do this. The health of our people, and by our people – I mean every human being on this planet, is so valuable. We must take care of each other. The best way I know to do this is share upbeat creativity with all those who find comfort and joy in it! Giant hugs, stay safe and use lots of soap and water on everything!
