Rainbow Hooray It's Your Birthday

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 sentiment and placing the rainbow sentiment in place.


I decided to pair this sentiment with some rainbow balloons The three balloons were adhered together with liquid glue. Thin gold metallic thread was added to the bottom of each balloons and foam tape was added to the back.


A panel of white cardstock was cut with a rectangle die and dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. The sentiment and balloons were laid on the embossed rectangle to determine placement. The balloons were adhered with liquid glue and the gold balloon strings wrapped around the back of the panel and adhered in place with Scotch Tape. The sentiment was then adhered with liquid. The secondary sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink onto some leftover red cardstock from the rainbow paper and heat embossed white. It was cut down using a Pink & Main Sentiment Strip, foam was added to the back, except where it would overlap the word die and adhered in place with liquid glue. The embossed focal image rectangle was added to a side folding A2 cardbase.
