Hello Blog Readers,
Thank you for stopping by.
Today I thought I would show you 2 cards I made for my Sons birthday. As you will guess from the theme of the 2 cards, he loves to ride his bikes, so much so, that he is going to be cycling from
Lands End to John O'Groats over 9 days, in September.
Anyway, back to the card, The bike die is a signature die by Joanna Sheen. I made the first card to look like a shop front window, the letters and birthday sentiments are dies from Robert Addams.
I cut strips of thin brown card and taped them to some acetate which I curved to give a bowed window effect.
I then had a request from my daughter-in-law asking for me to make a card from her. I used the same bike die but I cut it twice, once in grey and then in black. I then cut up the black bike and just used some parts to highlight the tyres, seat, handlebars and water bottle.
I cut up an old road map to use for the background and to make a mini road map.
My daughter-in-law was very happy with the end product.
Thank you again for popping by, please leave a comment, it is nice to know who looks in.
Enjoy your bank holiday weekend x
