Blended Rainbow Zebra Card

What’s Black and White and Rainbow all over? This Blended Rainbow Zebra Card! It’s quick to do with this tutorial.

Bright colors are just what we need right now as we try to start the new year off on a right foot.

Similarly, let’s get the year started with a birthday card!

We can never have too many birthday cards, right? I keep a box to store my birthday cards for when I need to send one, and I am often finding it almost empty!

Don’t be left without a birthday card when you need it. This Rainbow Zebra card is fast to make so you can always be ready!

See below for how to make this blended rainbow zebra!


How to create a Blended Rainbow Zebra Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Whisper White:
    • 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”
    • 4” x 5 1/4”
  • That’s it! I know!

Blend a rainbow:

  • With a sponge dauber, dab it onto your ink pad to pick up some ink, and use circular motions to ink your paper, each color across your paper.
  • There’s no wrong way to do this. Keep adding ink until the color is dark enough for your liking.
  • Use a different sponge for each color “family” that you use to avoid cross-inking!

TIP: Blend your inks in a circular motion. You’ll get a smoother look that’ll blend together colors.

Stamp the zebras:

  • Using Black ink, stamp your zebras towards the bottom of your rainbow layer. Then stamp your sentiment towards the top right.
  • Lastly, adhere the rainbow zebra layer to your card base!

Supplies for a Blended Rainbow Zebra Card:



Blending colors color can give you a rich background, but while I was making this, I also created a similar background while watercoloring the same inks:

While the ink blended card is slightly more vibrant, the watercolored card has a softer look that can be great to send for a birthday! Using one or the other technique is a great way to make your card exactly how you want.
