Summer Pastel Rainbow

Hi there.  I’m back again to share a summer CAS card created with only dies.  Images in sunglasses is not a new concept, and after FaceTiming with my 5-year old niece who was wearing her funky kids sunglasses yesterday, I created this.



The sunglasses was die cut off the edge of a white A2 piece of cardstock.  Then both the sentiment and sunglasses were die cut from black and white cardstock to be stacked.  Colouring was done with Copics.



The stacked glass frame was inlaid into the panel followed by the pastel rainbow coloured lens.  The overhang part was trimmed off.



Updated to Add: After I posted, I looked a it again and decided to change the sentiment to plain white.  I think it makes it even more CAS and the rainbow sunglasses stand out even more. 😉  Don’t you think?  Oh, there is clear shimmer on it too.




The sentiment was adhered, then clear shimmer and glossy accents were added. A few clear droplets finished off the card.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great weekend!

  1. What a great card! I love hearing how you got your inspiration for this card. I like them both but the change does bring more emphasis to the glasses. Thanks so much for sharing your card with everyone over at the Casual Fridays Dies Only Challenge!

  2. Your creativity is flowing, Trina!! LOVE the rainbow reflection in the sunglasses — AWESOME!! Great design. I like both, but the all white senitment does bring more focus to the rainbow sunglasses. xx

  3. Love the rainbow glasses. Reminds me of the eighties! Thanks for playing along with Casual Fridays Dies Only Challenge. Good Luck.

  4. I’ve heard the expression of looking at life through rose-colored glasses, but I have to say, I love the idea of looking through rainbow-colored glasses better after seeing this fantastic card, Trina! I love that your little niece inspired you to create this!! Hugs, Darnell
