Ornate Borders Rainbow Glimmer Thank You Card

by Joanne James19. June 2020 19:30


I have another quick card to share today that I made last weekend for the challenge over at Less Is More that is actually closing this evening - I'm not sure where this week has gone! I also used the sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments (I flipped it vertically):


I have a complete love affair with the new rainbow glimmer paper from Stampin' Up! and couldn't resist using a couple of the Ornate Borders to add detail to my top white panel and cutting away the right border edge to reveal a panel of rainbow glimmer paper - take a look:


Isn't it gorgeous?! I just love the sparkle - check it out:


I added my words courtesy of the Ornate Thanks set to complete my card - here's the inside:


Five simple products are all that's needed to create this gorgeous rainbow-inspired card.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

What a sweet floral die for your border and I'm loving the stitched circles on the other side. But let's get to the real crux of this comment: Rainbow glimmer paper? Mind blown! Vicky x

This is lovely, Joanne. The colours of that glimmer paper are gorgeous and it works so well with the aqua.  I love that you added a second decorative border too.  Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

The rainbow glimmer paper looks great. I've not got any of that yet. The ornate borders is a great way to show it off.
