Sparkly Rainbow Smile🌈

Hello there friends!  Just popping in here today to share a smile with you!

The MFT Summer School lessons continue with Day 2: RAINBOW!  For me, nothing says “smile” like a rainbow and we certainly need plenty of smiles these days!😀


I wanted the rainbow on my card to really stand out, so I’ve used an older MFT background stamp no longer available called “Floral Fantasy” and stamped it with Steel Gray Ink over a piece of Grout Gray cardstock that was cut out with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die.

I used the “End of the Rainbow” die, no longer available, to cut through the background and then I used the different strips in the rainbow to die cut the different colors of glitter paper to fill it in with.  I used the Sunset and Mermaid glitter paper stacks for the strips.  I then took an older MFT SMILE die and die cut over top of the rainbow and stamped background.  I die cut the words again with Black Licorice cardstock and inlaid the letters over top of the background.  I mounted the background over an A2 sized top folding Black Licorice card base.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the “All Smiles” stamp set (no longer available) over more of the Grout Gray cardstock and cut out with a banner die and popped it up underneath the die cut letters with foam tape.  I finished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.


Here’s a closer look at the glittery rainbow that I’ve inlaid for the background as well as the “smile” letters too.  Hopefully, you can see from this angle how all of it is incorporated into the background of the design.  The only thing that I popped up was the sentiment banner.


I hope that you’ve enjoyed my card today and it helped bring a smile your way!  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop in today my friends!  I’ll see you soon!
