Over The Rainbow Card

Do the dreary days of winter ever get you down?  I, for one, sure love to see colour & clear skies during these cold months!

Another thing I love during the winter (well, really anytime of year) is connecting with friends. Wouldn't you love to receive a happy, colourful, cheerful card from a friend on a cold, dreary day? 

Me too.

The idea from this card was lifted from a card I saw in a magazine awhile ago - I think it was Paper Crafts magazine.

I just love the colourful rainbow effect of the ribbons!

And the stitching adds just the perfect finishing touch.

  • Ribbons - Making Memories, Michaels, My Mind's Eye, Stampin' Up!

Go forth & create something cheery to brighten someone's day! :)

    ooooh! I"m so glad I found your blog. I'm the craft coordinator for our MOPS group and we're making cards to mail to friends and family. (Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.) I've been looking for inspirational ideas to put on a power point during the activity. May I use some of your card ideas? Audra @ Renewed Projects.
