welcome to rainbow week!

welcome to a special week! this week i'm excited to share 5 days of rainbows with 5 cards and a giveaway too! 

you may have noticed that rainbows are trending this spring in fashion, food, home decor and crafts. and i love it! rainbows make me feel like a kid with a fresh box of crayons! 

to get started with my rainbow love fest, i created a rainbow inspiration board because it was big fun and it makes all that time on pinterest seem productive:
sources:
-rainbow cookie
-string art heart
-gumballs
-cupcakes
-unicorn tee
-shelves
-cake

inspired and apparently a little hungry, i created a rainbow watercolor snow cone...
i used the bottom 2/3 of a folk heart die cut to create my cone. then i decorated it with little snowflake stamps like a classic sno-kone wrapper.
i partially die cut a circle from my card front to create a window, finishing it with a craft knife.
i used a rainbow of distress inks to watercolor inside my card. and i sprinkled the wet ink with a little salt to add a snow-cone-type texture.


stop by tomorrow for more rainbows and giveaway details!

xo,
carly
