Bike Ride - Birthday

This is the second card I created in my Bike Ride fest the other day :o) 

I changed the orientation this time, but kept to the same Clean & Simple look.

This time I used the Sunflowers and the alternate basket. 

I also stamped the wheels directly onto the White mat. This was simple to do once I knew the distance between the centres of each. I just cut a strip of card to length and used this to mark where the centres needed to be.

One of the dies in the Build A Bike Framelits set creates these cute cobbles .... how perfect! :o)

Gift Card Holder - Fresh Florals

I recently had to create a 'quick' Gift Card holder for my son to give  as a gift. 

This is a design I have used a lot and is so useful for holding Gift Cards or Money. You can find instructions for creating it HERE. For this one, I chose my two favourite new In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.

The Gift Bag Punch Board was used create the basic shape using Lemon Lime Twist card and the 'Large' bag instructions - minus the side panels.

Our now retired, Mini Silver Brads formed the closure on the back - fortunately I have about a million of these left still :o)

Bike Ride - Thank you

Bike Ride is one of the new Bundles available in our new catalogue. I absolutely love it and couldn't wait for mine to arrive :o)

The three cards I will show you over the next week are my first 'play'. I kept the layouts simple so I could concentrate just on working out what could be done with this set .... there are 24 separate stamps in the set!

I couldn't resist this little doggie and he had to go on my first card :o)
