Paradise Palms Rainbow Card
This Paradise Palms Rainbow Card uses a repeated stamping technique for a warm and beachy feeling. Find the easy steps to make one here!
Ever just create a card that shows exactly how you are feeling? This grove of different colored palms and warm beach sentiment feels so right while we start to open our windows for the first time in months and see the sun peek out from behind the clouds.
And you all know how much I love to stamp using a rainbow of inks, especially when they create a beautiful card! No tree stands alone, so each one from the new Paradise Palms stamp set got it’s own color as I used the Repeated Stamping Technique.
Additionally, when you want a sentiment to stand out but not cover up your background, consider using vellum! It’s adds that dimension while still letting the colors show through.
Rounding the corners on the layers was a last-minute decision to make it look like an old photo or as if from a hotel window.

How to make a Paradise Palms Rainbow Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Granny Apple Green
- 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4” for your cardbase
- Scrap for sentiment
- Crumb Cake: 4” x 5 1/4”, edges rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch
- Very Vanilla: 3 3/4” x 5”, edges rounded with the same punch
- Vellum: die-cut a scrap using the larger tag.
Stamp the Palm Trees:
- Starting with the palms, stamp your six rainbow colors, cleaning your stamp after each color.
- Then stamp the trunks using Crumb Cake ink. It’s ok if the bottoms fall below your layer.
- Next, adhere your stamped Paradise Palms layer to the Crumb Cake layer, and that to your card front.
TIP: When repeatedly stamping an image in succession, start with your center images and work your way out. This will ensure enough room for all your colors and can help you “eye-ball” measurements. A Stamparatus can help, too!
Create your Sentiment:
- Using Crumb Cake ink, stamp your sentiment on the scrap of Granny Apple Green. Then, die-cut it with the tag and adhere it to the center of the vellum tag.
- Lastly, use dimensionals to adhere it to your Palm grove. Of course you can add a few embellishments if you’d like!
