Rainbow birthday card

The theme this week for the Less is More challenge is: repetition.

So for my card I took inspiration from Chrissie's card and adapted it to my style and supplies.

I used the Happy from Happy 3x4 by Simon Says Stamp and the Happy birthday from Sizzix (birthday by Stephanie Barnard). I stamped the black with Versafine on top of the rainbow made with Ranger Dye inks.
I used the MISTI and just moved the cardstock over a little and started in the middle with yellow as it's the lightest color.

I made a similar card a few weeks ago, without the MISTI and my stamping was a bit skewed and I used a smaller happy from the same set.

I  made a mistake as I used the Misti vertically and had to rotate towards the end and reposition the stamp....Not sure it's better now lol...
few homemade enamel dots.
I adhered the cardpanel with foamtape.

  4. Fabulous card, great design and what's not to like about rainbow colours!

  5. Both of these look great, Maaike. I love the two-way orientation and the rainbow and black combo is always a winner.
