Vintage gentleman on bicycle 7" square card - Day 88 of my 366 day challenge

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.
Vintage gentleman on bicycle 7" square card - Happy Birthday
So I chose a 7" square white card (300gsm) and used one of the Tattered Lace border dies (serrated edge) and cut off just over an inch of the front card. I then cut a similar but slightly smaller strip in kraft card and glued it to the edge of the card allowing a small edge of white to remain.

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.

As I felt the card could be suitable for a variety of occasions, I used my Brother Scan n Cut and cut out various options (I first of all designed them in Canvas) in black 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.
