Banana Split Rainbow Bday Card

Created this birthday card with a rainbow colors theme.

One of the best things about having a Cricut subscription is being able to use cartridges that you do not own in the online Cricut Design Space. This cartridge, Yummy, has Print & Cut images which means you print the image on printer first. The printout has special marks that are also printed on your paper that allow the image to be die cut out.

Added Glossy accents.

Embossed the base of card with a Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder. Distressed the embossing with Hero Arts Ombre inks which are perfect for rainbow look.

On inside I added some pattern paper. Stamped HA sentiment 3 times with the HA Ombre inks for more rainbow effect.
