Rainbow Birthday

I love rainbows so when I saw this week's prompt at Less Is More is 'Rainbow' I knew I had to get all of my snippets out to find some bright rainbow colours. 

To make this card I cut my snippets of card to 1/8" width.  I placed the strips across the corner of my card blank and made a pencil mark by the top strip.  I placed the card blank into my MISTI and lined up the 'Happy' stamp so it was just above my pencil line and then stamped it in black ink.  I removed the pencil line and attached the rainbow strips across the card using wet glue to give some 'wriggle room' so I could make sure there were no gaps between the strips.  I then trimmed the ends of the strips level with my card blank.  I stamped 'birthday' onto white card, die cut it with the coordinating die and attached it along the top strip.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Clearly Besotted 'Modern Calligraphy' stamps and coordinating die
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Snippets of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet textured card, white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - One Corner   
     Allsorts  Spots and/or Stripes (I've obviously gone for the stripes option!)
     Less is More - Rainbow
     Perfectly CAS - Birthday
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 363

If you would like to share your views on die cutting  and also have a chance to a Clearly Besotted stamp and die sets - please see my Questions about Die Cutting and Giveaway post.
