Unicorns and Rainbows!

 Happy Tuesday everyone! There are so many new products coming into the Dies R Us Store including one of my favorite brands...MAMA ELEPHANT! Today, I'm sharing a slimline card I created using the ME Slim Card Basics Dies with the ME Unicorns and Rainbows Stamps


 For my tutorial, I'll be showing you how I created the awesome cloud background. Let's get started!

 Step 1: I used the cloud border die from the ME Slim Card Basics to cut out multiple cloud edges. I also cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.5 x 8.5. I wanted the white cardstock rectangle to be a little bit larger than the stitched die in the set (you will see why later).

 
Step 2: I wanted to make a rainbow cloud background so I grabbed Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Broken China, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks. I used makeup brushes to rub the ink along the cloud edge.

 

I also did several clouds using Broken China so I could create a 2nd background of only blue clouds. I'll use this background for another project later.

Step 3: I glued the cloud edges in a random pattern over the 3.5 x 8.5 rectangle base, and trimmed off the edges.

 
Step 4: Next, I used the stitched slimline die to cut out the panels. Because there are several layers of clouds I did have to run the die several times through my die cutting machine with an additional paper shim. Then I had to pull off the edges and trim up some hanging parts with scissors.
 
 
Step 5: I cut a black rectangle mat to go behind the cloud border panel, and adhered the entire thing to a white card base. Then I colored up the unicorns and castle from the ME Unicorns and Rainbows Stamp Set. The clouds at the bottom of the card with the sentiment are from Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Clouds.
 
 
I adhered the sentiment clouds, unicorns, and castle to the card with foam tape for extra dimension.
 
 
These are the products I used:
