Chocolate Rainbow Big Birthday Wishes Positive

I love making cards and I make a lot of them, but I have more than I can use. I called one of our local assisted living centers and asked them if they could use some birthday cards. They said that would love them, they give cards to each of their residents on their birthday. So I went to work creating some cards for seniors.


I began by ink blending a panel of cardstock with rainbow oxide inks and cut the sentiment from it. The sentiment was also cut from sticky back foam. The two were adhered together by removing the backing paper from the foam and placing the rainbow die cut in place.


I decided to use the My Favorite Things Big Birthday Wishes die to create this card. The sentiment was laid on the panel of ink blended rainbow cardstock, a rectangle die was selected that was just wider than the sentiment and the ink blended rainbow was cut down to fit the sentiment.

I originally thought I would place the sentiment on a black background, but decided to use chocolate brown instead. A panel of brown cardstock was cut down with a stitched rectangle and adhered to a top folding Kraft Cardstock A2 cardbase.


The sentiment was cut from the rainbow rectangle and also from sticky back foam. The backing paper was removed from the letters only and they were then carefully put in place. The foam was turned over, liquid glue was added to the letters only and then it was placed on the brown card front. After a few moments to let the glue set the rainbow rectangle was carefully removed, leaving behind the die cut words.
