Good morning! I am so excited to be a stop on the hop celebrating the gorgeous April release from Waffleflower Stamps! Today I’m sharing a card using the Rainbow Bridge products from the release! Pet sympathy cards are never easy cards to make but this is a beautiful set and a comforting way to send love to a friend who’s missing their furry friend.
This was also a great project for using up lots of paper scraps that I’ve saved for years. As a result, unfortunately, I’m not able to share the exact cardstocks I used for the rainbow but it is a general mix of cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, MFT, Bazzill, and Hero Arts! To start I masked off the bottom and top of a panel of white cardstock and then blended tumbled glass, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, and blueprint sketch distress oxide ink into the middle. I splattered it with water and then spritzed it with shimmer spray several times. I peeled off the masking tape and let it dry.
Meanwhile I die-cut the Rainbow Bridge frame from welsh gold glitter cardstock. Then I die-cut the rest of the rainbow from a variety of colored cardstock scraps. Once my background panel was totally dry I stamped the sentiment from Rainbow Bridge on the bottom of the panel with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Finally i used liquid adhesive to adhere the Rainbow Bridge frame and rainbow to the shimmery blended panel.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my card and it gives you some inspiration for those hard-to-create situations. 🙂

The gold sparkle die cut is beautiful and moving. I love this card and it really makes it special to have the sparkle paired with the speckled background.
