Angled Cardstock Cards

Rainbow colours always make me happy - and there are so many options with a rainbow colour scheme! Lisa Curcio recently did a video to show some great options for using cardstock scraps. 

The first card uses various rainbow cardstock colours. The pieces were cut on angles and placed on a piece of black cardstock. That was trimmed, layered on white and finally on a black base. I embossed a sentiment and die cut it. A piece of black shimmer trim was placed across the card and under the sentiment. 

The second card has a mosaic feel - and it took me more than one try to make this work! I used three cardstock colours on black and stamped a birthday sentiment along with a banner of presents. The presents were coloured using the same colours as the cardstock. Those pieces were adhered to the left side of the finished mosaic pattern.
