Looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

This past weekend, I had a class in which participants made St. Patrick’s Day banners!  They mentioned that they wanted one of the pieces of the banner to show a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.  The rainbow and the gold were easy to make, as I have the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.  But I knew the pot was going to be a little more difficult!  Initially, I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it, and had decided that I would probably just cut one freehand.  But before I did so, I decided to flip through all of my cutting dies to see if there was something I could use.  And in my Coffee Cups Framelits I found the perfect solution:

The die circled above is supposed to be a clear dome lid for a coffee cup.  But I saw an upside down pot!  So I used it to cut some black cardstock, flipped it upside down, and placed it on the piece to see how it would look.  I think it works pretty well!  (And no fussy freehand cutting! Phew!)

Be sure to check back tonight for a bonus post at 8:00 pm Eastern Time!  I will be participating in a Facebook hop that will feature Valentine’s Day gift bags and boxes.  I hope you’ll check back in and follow along!

In the meantime, enjoy your day!

Nicolle
