Rainbow Baby Box Card

Hello, I have another box card to share today. I began this new baby box card by creating the pieces to go inside it.


I die cut two MFT Stitched Rainbows, as I wanted a rainbow on both sides. As I needed a smaller rainbow to fit within the box card, I only used the three smaller sections of the rainbows, adding a different distress ink colour to each with a sponge dauber. I liked the distress inks but decided I wanted a more vibrant look. On the second rainbow, I used zig clean colour real brush pens, and was happier with the result.


I layered the rainbows together, adding some MFT Cloud 9 clouds to front and back. I also sandwiched some strips of acetate behind the clouds at the back so I could have the rainbow floating in the box.

The rest of the images are from the fabulous Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie stamp set. I used copics to colour them in, adding details with a white gel pen and Wink of Stella clear glitter. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I continued the rainbow theme with a lovely 12×12 paper I found in my stash. I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-up die (my favourite purchase this year) to cut the box and three inserts.

I added some MFT Grassy Hills to the inserts, then put the box together. The balloons and bird are attached with acetate strips so they float above, like the rainbow.

Finally, I added a white card panel with a gold heat embossed greeting. The greeting is a combination of sentiments from the Elphie Selfie stamp set and the Altenew Oriental Orchid stamp set.

I really love the colours in this box card, with the beautiful sunset orange really setting the scene nicely.

I’m entering this card in to the Lawn Fawnatics Summertime Fun competition.
