Rainbow Animals

Another productive day! Today I made a couple of card sets that I really liked. I've posted them on Etsy, but I almost want to keep them for myself, either one would make a fantastic gift for someone. This one I think is my favorite, until I look at the other one anyway.

The animals are a retired Stampin Up set called "Pun Fun". I stamped them without the text along the bottom of the stamp and then colored them in by hand. Each animal got mounted with foam tape to a color block and then to a blank white background with just a touch of embossing. I opted not to attach the sentiments just yet, and leave it up to the receiver what the sentiment would say (I made up "Thank You", "Congratulations!" and "Happy Birthday!" ones in each color). The sentiments work equally well on the outside (matching or not matching the animal) or on the inside.

I saw this concept somewhere and thought it was great! I like having cards around that I can pull out for any occasion, and even better, when I get stuck I can just give the whole set as a gift!

This guy is my favorite of the six.
