fall Rainbow

 Good day my Friends
   Well today share is the card that I made for the swap at Founder. I was not there by my Friend Kelly was sweet to swap them for me. So after making 120 of them I decided to make one more to show you all how  to make the faux tear and the fall rainbow. I love this card even after 120 of them I still love it. The suggestion  this year was 2 layer card and many said WHAT? 2 layer! Not possible for a card well I think I nail it right with the 2 layer and it look great. The one on the left I emboss with the square lattice after it was all sponge and stamp and the one on the right is without. I think I prefer the one without the emboss but when I show the girls here at a class it was a bid toss up about 50/50 so I made some of both. The color of the sponging are from the bottom going up, Old Olive, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. Then I stamp with the French Foliage and only on some of them I use the Gently Falling  all in Early Espresso. Well you will see how simple it is to make the tear look without any tear on this card...the video will show you all of it. Again today it's a video on this post so if for some reason your e-mail doesn't show the video just visit my blog. The button is the Brushed Bronze #127833 and the Ribbon is the Summer starfruit perfect for a rich fall color. The ribbon can be yours for FREE I have the info at the bottom of this post on you can get a spool of ribbon for FREE. Well my friends this is it for today and tonight I'm starting Technique class and I will all the info Friday for the technique class in the mail. Thank you all for stopping and have a great one!

It's me Frenchie with a little french accent living in the United States, that loves to create and share paper crafting. Hope I inspired you to create your own creation with paper. Thank you for stopping by. Come again soon!


  1. Hi France,
    I like your fall rainbow card very much. It is good to be reminded that we can create a classy card with only 2 layers!
    Did you use the new foam ink pads for the sponging? I am a little afraid to try sponging with them because there is so much more ink on the surface of the pads, compared to the older style of pads.
    Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

  2. Great technique. I love that it is one layer, but it doesn't look like it is. Your choice of colors and the design are awesome!

  3. Thank you for demonstrating this technique. I had procrastinated finding a project for my stamp club. This one is it!!!

  4. Very pretty and really simple too, tys!

  5. Beautiful card. Doesn't take much time, but looks like it does. Really lovely. TFS!

  6. That's gorgeous Frenchie. It gives me ideas for a winter card using shades of blues.
