Rainbow Birthday

I love vibrant colors. They instantly put me in a good mood especially during those gloomy German winter days. Here's a fun rainbow birthday card that will hopefully brighten someone's day!

Whenever I have enough time I like to include little accents on the envelope that match the theme of the card:

Thank you so much for stopping by :)

    1. Thank you very much, Andrea :)
      I made my own stencil for the rainbow by simply cutting an open triangle into some sturdy leftover cardstock. Then I placed the sharp edge of the triangle into the center of the card and blended my first distress ink color over my stencil. Next, I moved my stencil a few millimeters and blended a new color over it. I repeated that step multiple times over the entire card and made sure to overlap the colors.
      I hope this makes sense, it's really difficult to describe ;) If I get a chance I will put together a mini tutorial with pictures for this technique and publish it here. Please check back in a few weeks!
