Rainbow Happy Birthday with Black & White Border

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 die cut word placing the rainbow word on top.

This was a very easy card to create. I pulled out some black and white striped paper and cut a band that was 1" wide. I could have adhered it to the top of the cardbase, but this time I decided to cut away 3/4" from the bottom of a side folding cardbase and adhered the striped paper to the inside of the card. You can't see it when the card is closed, but a narrow strip of gold glitter cardstock was added to the edge of the black and white strip.

The rainbow die cut word was laid on the card front to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment. The rainbow word was then adhered to the lower left of the card front with liquid glue. I decided that the card needed another visual element, so the single balloon from Simon Says Stamp's Balloon Bouquet was cut from leftover rainbow cardstock and adhered to the right of the rainbow word.
