Hi friends! I am back with another card inspired by the new Rainbow Splash line from Simon Says Stamp. As I was swatching the colors in the Rainbow Splash Ink Collection, I noticed that the super bright Lime ink was nearly neon, and that inspired me to create a tropical project using a few inks from the Rainbow Splash line, softening the vivid neon aesthetic with the lovely Peachy ink from the Pawsitively Saturated ink line. Let’s get started on the details for this project!
I began by trimming down a panel of white cardstock to about 5.25″ x 4,” blending around the edges with Lime, Canary, Peachy, and Princess Inks. The Lime, Canary,and Princess Inks are from the Rainbow Splash family, but they work beautifully when paired with the Pawsitively Saturated inks. After I had created the beautiful neon glow on the edges of my white card front, I matted the panel with an ever-so-slightly larger piece of black cardstock to make it pop from the Lime Rainbow Splash cardstock base.
To keep the bright neon colors as vivid as possible, I die cut the Tropical Leaf Bunch die from some black cardstock. The crisp black cardstock contrasts beautifully with the neon background! I nestled one die cut into the corner and trimmed off the excess, then added the second over the top with some black foam adhesive squares for extra dimension and interest.
For the greeting, I heat embossed a couple of the greetings from the Big Old Birthday stamp set onto some more black cardstock using gold glitter embossing powder. I die cut the larger sentiment using the coordinating die and trimmed the smaller sentiment strip with my trimmer. I popped those up on the card front using some more black foam adhesive squares, finally adding a few Onyx adhesive gems for some more sparkle!
Well, that’s all for me today! It was such fun to step outside of my jewel- and pastel-toned aesthetic for this super vivid neon project. Sometimes, all you need is one color to jumpstart an idea for an entire card! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
