Hello, Trinity friends!! I hope your first week of March is going well!!
It seems like I’m always trying to stock my stash of birthday cards!! I guess that is the occasion that I send the most of!! I have a bright, colorful, rainbow candle birthday slimline card to share with you today!! Whew…that’s a mouthful…lol!! Let’s get to it!!
I began by die-cutting the Heart Swirl Die from a piece of patterned paper in the Rainbow Brights Slimline Paper Pad. I strategically placed it so the heart would cut from the area where all the points of the rainbow met. I also wanted to use this paper for the background, so I tried to keep that in mind. No one will ever know that we die-cut from the center of it!
Next, I used InkOn3 Atelier Inks with the candle stencil in the Cake and Candles Stencil Set. (I cut my stencil in half to make it smaller and easier to work with.) I used Sweet Petunia Pink, My Jam Purple, Peacock Blue, Trinity Teal, Goddess Green, Bee Sting Yellow, Marigold Orange and Marilyn Red inks with Blending Buddy Brushes. I did mask off the candles on each side of the one I was applying the ink to.
I chose a couple of Copic markers from each color family and added some shading to the candles. This just adds a little bit more dimension to them.
I die-cut the candle and rainbow panels with the two largest dies in the Slimline Stitched Card Panels and Windows Die Set. I added some polka dots and stripes to the candles with a white gel pen and some shine to the flames with crystal glaze.
Using the Scripty Happy Birthday Die Set, I cut the top layer once from black glitter cardstock and twice from heavyweight white cardstock. The bottom layer was cut from heavyweight white cardstock twice and the layers were stacked and adhered together.
The cardstock panels were adhered to a white, top-folding slimline card base.
The heart swirl and sentiment die-cuts were adhered as shown. I used a small Black Eyed Bead Bauble for the tittle on the ‘i” in birthday, as I had misplaced mine.
The Oh My Stars Holographic Star Confetti adds the perfect amount of shine and reflects all of the rainbow colors around them.
I really LOVE how this turned out!! Rainbow colors with black and white is always a win in my book!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great Thursday and I’ll see you back here next week!!
