I made this card for a friend who's a keen cyclist and am entering The Male Room 'Wheels' challenge, Seize the Birthday 'Inlaid die-cutting' challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Friends 'Anything Goes' challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Die: Joanna Sheen 'Road Bike'
Stamp: Hobby Art 'Happy Birthday'
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Card: Black matt
Paper: Joy Crafts 'Earth Bloc'
Other: Wink of Stella
I die cut the road bike from black card and set it aside. I trimmed the paper to a square and die cut the bike from the lower edge. The paper was then layered onto black card and I inlaid the bike and paper pieces. To ensure the inlaid pieces were flat and glued down well, I placed a piece of plain card over the paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The panel was then attached to the card front. To finish I stamped the sentiment in the top corner and highlighted it with a Wink of Stella.
