Happy Day everyone!

Today I am sharing inspiration for colorful crafting! What makes you choose certain cardstock colors? I am definitely inspired by many, many things when I am creating, and this time it was simply my rainbow stack of Bazzill Basics Paper that was the starting point for this card:

There is even a rainbow of colors as part of the Bazzill logo!

I couldn’t choose just one color to work with….so I used ALL the colors of the rainbow!  And now I will show you in 5 steps how to “Make It In Minutes.”

1. Cut out your card base from white cardstock OR use the pre-made A2 White Scallop Cards/Envelopes pack, like I did. These are so handy for quick card making.

2. Stamp a sentiment on the bottom of the card base. I used a fun Heidi Swapp stamp.

3. Emboss a smaller piece of white cardstock to add texture and cut a piece of rainbow paper to layer.

4. Punch or die cut butterflies. I used 7, one for each color of the rainbow: RED – Berrylicious, ORANGE – Carrot Cake, YELLOW – Mexican Poppy, GREEN – Sour Apple, BLUE – Nautical Blue, INDIGO – Fairytale, VIOLET – Purple Pizzazz

5. Assemble and adhere all the card elements together!

I also lifted the butterfly wings for a 3D effect, so I only put adhesive in the center of each one.

That’s all there is to it!

Hope your day is all rainbows and sunshine!
