Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays Rainbow Card


Hello!  This card was inspired by Sketch Challenge #506 at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  This challenge doesn't end until May 23rd, if you want to join the fun!

My immediate thought when I saw this sketch was to use the front of the rainbow card in my April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit and medium daisy punch with the Daisy Lane stamp set.  Then I decided that I wanted to use one of the flowers from Loose Flower Flourishes embellishments as the center of my flower.  That's when I realized I couldn't use the front of the rainbow card because the colors wouldn't match.

So, the first step in creating this card was to cut the back off the rainbow card out of my Paper Pumpkin kit.  Then, I used the widest Water Painter with my stampin' pads to paint the rainbow.  I ended up not getting ink all the way to the edge of the cardstock, so I cut away the excess. 

For the background, I used a Blending Brush with Balmy Blue ink to add color to a piece of Basic White Cardstock.  

The rainbow was glued to the background using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then, I used a few Glue Dots to attach the ribbon.  Once that was done, I attached that piece to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I stamped two of the medium daisies, punched them out and layered them together with Liquid Glue just in the center of the flower.  Then, I attached it to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.  The Loose Flower Flourishes were all attached with Glue Dots.

The inside has Happy Birthday and the smallest daisy stamped in Polished Pink.  

Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Background Layer ~ 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
Polished Pink ~ 3-1/8" x 1-3/8"
Basic White ~ 3" x 1" and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
