Rainbow Ink Blended Masculine Birthday Cards II

I had a little more of the rainbow ink blended cardstock left and so I decided to make another couple of cards.  This time I wanted to see what rainbow letters would look like on black cardstock, and I love the way it turned out.  The second card uses gold mirror cardstock behind the negative word cutout.

For the first card a horizontal A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock.  To add interest to the front of the card a rectangle of black cardstock was cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and then Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger.  The two were adhered together with Scor Tape.

The Silhouette cut letters are Franklin Gothic Heavy Font at 138.5 pt, stretched to be a little taller and cut from leftover rainbow ink blended cardstock.  The letters were applied to the black rectangle using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  The easiest way to align them is to use the negative cutout for placement.  The secondary sentiment is from the Sizzix Balloon and Cupcake stamp set, stamped with VersaMark Ink, and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The focal rectangle was adhered to the black cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The second card uses the negative space of the rainbow ink blended cardstock cutout.  A strip of Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock cut 1/4″ taller than the letters was added to the back with 3M 1/2″ foam tape cut to go around the letters and give them dimension and support.  The secondary sentiment is from the Sizzix Balloon and Cupcake stamp set, stamped with VersaMark Ink, and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

A rectangle of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back.  The word strip was adhered to the white rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  A horizontal A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal rectangle was glued to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
