Pastel Rainbow Message Board Card

Hello! I created this card with the front liners and first responders in mind. I am in healthcare, too, but I don't do bedside care anymore. I do work with these front liners very closely in the units that we monitor. Seeing the circumstances right now, they are in a very difficult position to be on.

I am using the SugarPea Designs Message Letter Board die. I have used this die for several projects already. I am linking it here, in case you are interested to check it out (Vinyl on Greeting CardTeacher Inspired Letter Board Card, and Letter Board Birthday Card). I embossed the die on a Neenah Solar White cardstock. I ink blended the panel using the lines as guide. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Sugar Spun, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass. I chose these colors to match the colors of the challenge. I masked the areas that I was not blending ink on.

I die cut my sentiment using the letter die included in the SPD Message Letter Board die set. I adhered these letters close to the bottom of the message board.

I stamped the image from the retired SPD This Little Piggy stamp set on Strathmore Water color paper using Versafine Onxy Black ink. I colored the image with Karina markers. I have used these markers on Canson water color paper in which this paper had some warping. The Strathmore brand worked well with these markers. I also tried the blender pen in this project. I did not see any blending. It was the water brush that made the pigment blend. I will try this blender pen with the Karin marker on a different paper.

Back to the project, I fussy cut the image leaving a white border around it. I partially stamped the angel pig image on a heavy weight Clearprint Vellum using Versamark ink. I made sure I got a good impression of the wings. I embossed the wings with Wow! Midas Touch embossing powder. I fussy cut the wings leaving a small border on the outer border of the wings. I cut the wings next to the embossed lines where the wings meet the pig's body.

I die cut some clouds on Grafix Platinum Vellum. I used a sticker maker to add adhesive to these clouds and to the wings. I adhered the wings to the pig. I colored the wings and the letters with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss. I adhered the clouds to the letter board panel. I applied an action mini wobble spring to the back of the pig. I adhered this to the letter board panel.

I created a frame for the letter board panel using a white card stock. I adhered this to a top folding white A2 note card.

Here is a short video showing the wobbler in action.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a SAFE, blessed, brilliant and creative day!
