I’m so lucky… I’m lucky to have family, friends, Faith, hope, and love. I am grateful for all the things that I have and enjoy. With that being said… Do you feel lucky too? The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow doesn’t have to be tangible… It doesn’t have to be physical… It could just be simple bliss. What are you lucky for? Follow along to find out how you can make this adorable card with SVG files included! These colors go so well together… and the chartreuse… I can’t get over how beautiful that color is… 🥰🥰

Start off by cutting all the files included in the SVG link above. The sentiment file (I’m so lucky) can be cut using vinyl or cardstock. You'll also want to cut a card base out of white (I'm using Smart White) that is
We’ll start out with the envelope and the liners. Fold the envelope at the perforated marks and apply the liners to the inside using Zip Dry glue. I love how the Chartreuse and Star dream punch coordinate so well together. ❤️
For the base layer, I used an embossing folder but this is optional. It’s a layer that goes behind and I wanted to add some texture. I love how it looks!
Add your base layer (Stardream Punch embossed paper) to the bottom of the card base (Smart White) using Zip Dry glue. Add the white rainbow base layer on top of that towards the top of the card. I used hot glue for this since the layer underneath has texture. Tip: just place your pot to the bottom of the card to make sure you can position the base rainbow layer correctly.
Now it’s time to add the foam tape to the back of each of the rainbow pieces, the clouds, and the pot.
Layer them on top of your white rainbow piece. Be sure to play close attention to the direction of your rainbow layers and your cloud pieces.
Now you can add your pot to the bottom of the card. I attached this with hot glue.
I’ve included 10 circles to mimic coins. I cut them out in the gold glitter to add extra pizzazz. You can cut out more or less if you choose. I added hot glue to the back of these and laid them in and on the pot. This is how I’ve stacked the gold coins.
I used vinyl to cut out my sentiment and applied it to the banner piece. I used hot glue in the center of the banner to add it on top of my pot.
And this is how the card looks without any extra pizzazz. I think it looks nice in this form. But you know me, I can’t leave it without a little bit of shine!
This is optional, but you can add sequins to your card.
And if you want to go a step further, grab some gold Stickles and outline the rainbow and the clouds. It’s a nice snug fit, but it does fit inside the envelope. This is the end result and I am so happy with it! What do you think?
I hope (as always) that you enjoyed this project and will enjoy the SVG files. It was really fun to create!!
