Border Dies Focused Cards by Leanne and Mindy

Hello everyone! Leanne here today. I live in Iowa where the winter days can often be overcast and gloomy. I find myself wanting to add lots of color to my cards to compensate for the lack of outside this time of year. So I have a very colorful rainbow card to share today. I've combined two new Sunny Studio products to create the rainbow which covers the length of my slimline card.

I used two different border dies. The scallop is from Eyelet Lace Borders and the hearts are from Heartstrings Borders. Now you could create your own rainbow ink blended card stock to die cut these borders out of, but you don't have to. It's already been done for you! I used a piece of patterned paper from the Spring Fling Paper Pad. It works out perfectly to die cut enough border strips to fill the front of the card. I alternated adhering the two border styles onto a separate panel and then trimmed narrower than the slimline card base which measures 8.5" tall by 3.5" wide.

For the focal images on this card, I've used the balloon bouquet from Floating By and a monkey from Love Monkey. The monkey image is originally hanging from a vine.  After I die cut the monkey out, I simply fussy cut the vine part off. When I adhered the balloon bouquet to the monkey tail, it covers any odd lines left from the vine. I stamped the greeting, also from Floating By, in one of border gaps just below the monkey. For a bit of embellishment, I added some tiny clay heart confetti.

I die cut 3 of the Sweet Word Die which and layered them all together so my sentiment is thicker and stands up off the card a little, the with love is also from the Spring Showers Stamp set – I just trimmed off the ‘you’.
