Birthday Card | Ellen Hutson - "Unicorns 'N Rainbows"


I've got a very happy birthday card to share with you today featuring the pretty images from Ellen Hutson's 'Unicorn 'N Rainbows' Stamp Set! I've CASE-d one of my Graciellie Teammates, Vakia King from @vakiaisspreadingsparkle, who created a striped paper card earlier this week! She inspired me to dig through the scraps next to my paper cutter and make this rainbow background! 

I trimmed all of the scraps into 1/4" strips, glued them to the front of a top-folding A2 card base and trimmed the excess off with scissors. I interspersed 1/8" strips of Pink & Main's Gold Glitter Paper throughout to give it more sparkle factor since this card was going to my 6-year-old neighbor who loves everything pink and sparkly!

I stamped, colored and die cut the unicorn/clouds and heat embossed/die cut the sentiment strip. A matching glitter circle frame was glued down onto the paper strips first, followed by a white scallop circle. The images and sentiment strip were adhered into place with foam tape and/or glue. I added a few aqua hearts inside the frame to finish the card! Thanks so much for joining me today!
