Hello! Rainbows just make everyone happy, so what better theme for a Happy Birthday card? I've gone a little overboard on the rainbows for an entire set of cards, all using the CAS-ual Fridays Shenanigans birthday sentiment.
I lined up the rainbow of Catherine Pooler Inks, put the birthday stamp on my MISTI, and started stamping down the card. Based on how high the sentiment is, I moved the card down 9/16" before stamping the next color. When I got to the green "birthday" for this card, I left more of a space and indented so I would have room to stamp "happy." It was important for me to line up "happy" with the left edge of "birthday" so the left margin was consistent.
It took me awhile to get the spacing right. The first cards I stamped on the left will most likely go to some of my sons' friends, who probably don't pay attention to the cards anyway (unless there's a gift card inside!)
I happen to like this card with the yellow birthday highlighted, maybe because it separates the warm colors on top from the cool colors on the bottom.
I was having so much fun with the rainbow look, I buckled up for a few more ...
For these cards, instead of moving the card down 9/16" every time I switched colors, I moved the card down a smaller 5/16".
The overlapping effect made more of a focus on the sentiment that was all by itself, with the "happy" stamped on the side. I started the rainbow in the middle, with yellow, for this card.
This one is full-force rainbow, to the 100th power. The blurring effect runs completely down the card to the last purple color. Kinda like an exclamation mark with a long line and a point at the bottom.
I think this card could be used for anyone ... child, teen, male, female, they would all work.
I just really enjoy looking at this card : )
