A Post for Pride Month

Hi everyone,

Today, I bring you a colorful, cheery post celebrating Pride Month and all that's good about humanity!

Rainbow card 1

Rainbows signify happiness to me and I love that these colors are deeply associated with the LGBTQ movement in America, signifying the diversity in the community but also each colors holds its own symbolism:

  • life (red),
  • healing (orange),
  • sunlight (yellow),
  • nature (green),
  • harmony/peace (blue),
  • spirit (purple/violet)

Blending the colors in this card signified harmony and unity and the sentiment I chose spoke to that symbolism as well.

Rainbow card 2

I used My Favorite Things' Splotchy Dot Background first using dye inks in all the colors of the rainbow. Then I blended Distress Inks in the same colors over the dots. Next, I used My Favorite Things' Heart Tree DieCut to make a cavity in the cover of the colored card panel and also used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die Cut to give this panel a fun border. Now the only thing missing from this rainbow was he pot of gold! So, I adhered some glitter gold cardtsock to the back of the tree die cut and voila! It just made the card so much more vibrant in a flash!

Rainbow 3

I then added a sentiment from My Favorite Things Cup of Love Clear Stamps that seems tp play well with the blended background. I also added two hearts that had cut out from the tree to the side of the sentiment to make this the perfect anytime card for your sweetheart!

I hope you enjoyed learning more about my process and I look forward to seeing you next time!
