Road Bike

I made this card for my OH's birthday which is next week - he's a keen cyclist and really enjoys cycling on beautiful summer days.  I'm entering the Crafty Friends 'Summertime' challenge, A Gem of a Challenge 'Weather' (I've chosen summer),  Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' and Die Cut Divas 'Anything Goes' challenges.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Hobby Art 'Happy Birthday'
Die: Joanna Sheen Signature Dies 'Road Bike'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black
Card: Black pearl
Paper: Tattered Lace backing paper (magazine freebie)

I trimmed the backing paper into a square, layered it onto black pearl card and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  I die cut and embossed the Road Bike and attached it to the lower corner of the card with Stick & Stay adhesive.  To finish I stamped the sentiment in the top corner.

  1. Such a nice fresh looking card Kath. I'm a keen cyclist too. Love nothing more than getting out for a bike ride. The terrain is pretty undulating around here (another way of saying flipping hilly!!) so I certainly get a work out! Hugs Christine xx
