For my second attempt at this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop I decided to use my Rainbow Stripes die. I used this die to cut three different patterned papers and by mixing them up I was able to create three different cards fairly quickly. My mother needs a lot of birthday cards to send to her great grandchildren, so I decided to make these fairly flat for mailing.
On the first card I separated the stripes slightly and added a sentiment using one of the Birthday Trio dies and the Heart Border die. I heat embossed 'It's Your' with silver EP and cut two more heart borders out of the more solid pink print. I glued these behind the white heart border, one slightly higher and one slightly lower giving me a pink border around each of the hearts.
The second card doesn't really need much in the way of explanation. I cut out a fourth set of stripes from black cardstock and used the two outer stripes to give me a fine black border.
For my third card I replaced the center stripe with a stamped sentiment - the word birthday is heat embossed in silver - and added the designer paper outside of the stripes. I die cut the smallest star from Seeing Stars and heat embossed it with silver EP.
