Every time I get out my bike, I sing the song, “I want to ride my Bicycle” by Queen! Anyone else??? No, just me? Every since I was a kid, summer and riding bikes just go hand in hand! This cute little card just screams summer to me!!!
I started with a Melon Mambo card base and added a piece of the It’ My Party Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 3″ (that’s 12 pieces in 1 sheet). Then I took a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ and punched the banner tips with the Banner Triple Punch. I ran it through the Big Shot in the Zig Zag Embossing Folder! I added the banner to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, of course! 🙂 For the focal point, I stamped the bicycle from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White scrap paper. Then I punched it out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch before stamping the flowers. I wanted to see where the bottom was and how much room I had before stamping the flowers. I stamped the stems in Mint Macaron and the flowers in Crushed Curry! I added the oval to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well! The greeting was stamped in Tip Top Taupe and it is also from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set! Perfect card to send to a friend just because! I love it! I finished off the card with a few It’s My Party Enamel Dots!
Do you like to create simple cards with greetings like this or do you mostly stamp occasion cards like Birthday, Wedding, Sympathy, etc.? Let me know in the comments below!
Yuppers! Me too! Your card brings back memories of riding bicycles as a young girl! The sheltering tree stamp is one of my year round favs! Wow! The Melon Mambo colors definitely make your awesome card simply pop!
YEAH! I’m not the only one! That set is super amazing all year around. Love it!!! ~Laura
