i-crafter // Rainbow Doily Background

Hey, there! I just love the Doily Die from i-crafter! It's cute, it's elegant, it's amazing! 

This card is super easy to make. And you can change it up to add any sentiment that you want! Let's start with the background. I used alcohol inks to create a bright rainbow background. I die cut the Doily Die from heavy white cardstock and glued it onto my rainbow background. I used scissors to trim around the outline of the Doily Die leaving a little border. I added foam tape behind the die cut to give it dimension and adhered it onto some subtle tone on tone gray patterned paper. 

I didn't quite know what sentiment I wanted to add, but I'm ALWAYS sending "thank you" cards, so I used the Carly Alphabet Die Set to cut my sentiment. I cut out each letter that I would need for my sentiment five times and stacked them together. You could use foam tape instead, but I didn't want to cut out a bunch of tiny pieces of foam. I find it easier to stack die cuts on top of each other! When I went to add my letters onto the background I didn't think they were standing out enough. I arranged the Carly Alphabet sentiment onto a piece of vellum and trimmed around the sentiment (leaving a border) with scissors and added it to my Doily Die with liquid adhesive. 

I needed to add some glitz and shine, so I covered the die cut sentiment with glitter and a thick coat of Glossy Accents! That finishes this card! See you soon!
