Day 16: Rainbow Birthday Card

Hello there!!

I am still off by one day on documenting my journey, but I am going to catch up here in a little while. You will see another post popping up later today.

Today I have a fancy shaped card for you, and let me tell you, this one is so easy to make!!

DON’T Forget, the random prize patrol is watching so make sure you leave a comment on this post for another chance to win!

This card was made using the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. As you can see, the cloud part is the front of the card and they you can write inside the card underneath the cloud shape! Adorable, huh?!

The neat thing about this cartridge is that it has shaped cards on it (as one of the feature keys) that coordinate with the 50 main shapes with layers.

When cutting out a card, the card and the main shape that matches that card cut out so that they fit together!!! So you don’t have to worry about trying to match up the size of your card with the layers. The Cricut does that for you.

So when making my card, I used the dial size of 3.25 (with real dial size OFF, not lit up) and the card and the layers fit perfectly together. I didn’t have to change the dial size at all.

Card details:

  • The rainbow card and all the layers were cut out at 3.25 with the real dial size button OFF (not lit up).
  • The card piece that was cut in Stampin’ UP Basic Black actually fit length-wise on an 8.5X11inch piece of cardstock. I figured out the correct size so that I didn’t have to use a 12X12 piece of paper (I know some of you card makers don’t purchase 12X12 cardstock, and also I like to save my 12X12 cardstock for scrapbooking).
  • For the layers, I used the following Stampin’ UP Colors: Whisper White Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun (retired), and Pacific Point.
  • The sentiment is another stamp from the SP and Company Mix ‘N Match: Basics stamp set. This set is just so versatile!! I stamped the three separate sections using the following Stampin’ UP Colors: Pacific Point, Real Red, and Basic Black.
  • To finish off the card, I added 5 adhesive rhinestones from Stampin’ UP.
