Step 1: Pick out the blue, green, yellow and red papers from the Rainbow Rush Bold Paper Pack. Cut each of them at 4-1/4″ with the pattern going from dark at the top to light at the bottom. Using those 4-1/4″ x 12″ strips, cut a 1″ x 4-1/4″ strip out of the darkest part of the patterned paper. Cut another piece at 5-1/2″ so you end up with a card panel that measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
Step 2: Take four blank cards out of the Blank Card Kit and adhere the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ pieces of patterned paper to the front of the cards using the Tape Runner. These panels should perfectly cover the front of the card.
Step 3: From Rainbow Rush Laser Border Embellishments, pick out the green and blue circular embellishment as well as the purple and yellow strip embellishment.
Step 4: From Rainbow Rush Layered Title Embellishments, pick out the “Hello,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” You’re Amazing” and “You Make Me Happy” titles.
Blue “Hello” Card:
Use the card with the blue base, vertically. Adhere the yellow 1″ x 4-1/4″ strip to the middle of the the card horizontally with the Tape Runner. Adhere the green circular embellishment with Foam Squares to the middle of the card and add the “Hello” title embellishment with the Tape Runner.
Yellow “Some Kind of Wonderful” Card:
Use the card with the yellow base, horizontally. Adhere the red 1″ x 4-1/4″ strip to the lower right side of the the card horizontally with Foam Squares. Adhere the yellow strip embellishment to the right edge of the card horizontally over the red strip with the Tape Runner and Repositionable adhesive. (Note: This adhesive is super easy to use and it gets adhesive on all of the fine detail of the embellishment!) Adhere the “Some Kind of Wonderful” title to the right side of the strip.
Green “You’re Amazing” Card:
Use the card with the green base, horizontally. Using the Tape Runner and Repositionable adhesive, adhere the purple embellishment strip to the bottom of the green panel. Use All-Purpose Scissors to trim off the extra that hangs over the two sides. Adhere the “You’re Amazing” title to the bottom right side of the purple strip using Foam Squares.
