My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things Birthday Project ROYGBIV

Rainbows are always the right choice — especially for celebratory occasions like birthdays! For this month’s My Favorite Things feature of the Birthday Project we are inspired by rainbows!

Rainbows always add a very fun and whimsical feel to a card, and I don’t think you can ever go wrong with it! I decided to use this cheery color combo with a fun scene with these talented circus critters. I started my stamping these images from Spectacular Birthday in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers.┬áThe images were colored with a rainbow theme. I also added some details to the images with a white gel pen. Then I used the coordinating Die-namics to die cut the images out.

Now for the rainbow background! I love to ink blend and I picked out Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink to blend in each corner. The overlap of these colors will complete the rainbow colors. I allowed the ink blending to lighten toward center to give it that glow.

I die cut the words out of white card stock using the Birthday Wishes Die-namics. This die cut sentiment is on the top of list of favorites! I added it to the top left corner of the card. Right below it, I also heat embossed the sentiment ‘you’re amazing’ from the Spectacular Birthday set onto Wild Wisteria card stock. I trimmed it down to a thin strip with my paper cutter and adhered it to the card with foam tape.

And finally, I added all my circus animals to the card below with foam tape. The rainbow colors really bring out the happiness of these critters!
