Vintage gentleman on bicycle 7" square card -
Day 88 of my 366 day challenge
Hi Craft addicts!
I really love this image from Hunkydory's "Charming Chaps" Little books (really wish they would do a pack of this and the Old Bean one) and decided to make a card that can be used for a variety of occasions.
I then glued the topper of the vintage gent on a bicycle on the precut panel of gold mirri card (that Hunkydory sells) and then placed both of them onto another panel of black cardstock leaving a very small border in each colour.
I glued this to the front of the card and allowed it to dry. Whilst this was doing, I cut out some embellishments using the "Vintage Gents" die set from 1st Edition (they do a variety of images but decided to use these ones). I kept the theme but using Kraft card and glued them to the bottom of the card.
I made sure that they were narrow enough to fit onto the back of the card where the front has been cut away. I chose "Best wishes", "Good Luck" and "Happy Birthday" as the first sentiments but feel I could do all sorts ensuring that they fit the space.
And there you are a really lovely card that is easy to make but doesn't look like it...And of course you can buy this on my website here
