I had made a card with Simon Says Stamp's Nested Banner dies a few posts ago. I had not used the middle ring of die cuts, and said I was going to find a way to use them...well...here's what I made with them...
I decided(after MUCH trial and error), to stamp sentiments inside each ring. I gathered sentiments from a number of Simon stamp sets, and used some Sunny Studio rainbow striped paper to cover the rings. I loved what the colors brought to the sentiments, and happily made this a birthday card! I then wanted a background. I decided to use the candles from the Simon Birthday Borders stamp set. I opted for a black panel and used white ink..thought it looked cool! I will say, I used my MISTI for the positioning of the candles...made the stamping SO MUCH easier than stamping by mere sight, with hands!! Here's a close up...
Rainbows and birthdays...LOVE!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
