More bike cards!

Not sure how many bike cards I have made, but here are two new ones! :) Both are commissioned cards for a family that are into bikes, and I've made lots of cards in the past for them, so the struggle is making something new! This card is using my new set of stamps from Lawn Fawn called " Blue Skies" (LF511) and an old favourite set by Hero Arts called "Joy Ride" (CL481). I stamped the balloons without their baskets and then stamped bikes where the baskets had been. Then I masked the balloons, and text (It was all on one layer) and used the distress ink + cloud mask technique for the background. The balloons are coloured with Copics and the added clouds are a diecut from Joy.

I managed to acquire some new cards from Paperchase that had been rejected for some reason, and a few had this great bike backing paper. I cut them up and then decoupaged on some of the bikes, as I had multiples of the same bike card. The greeting was printed onto the red backing paper and the bikes stuck on top of that. Added a bit of bling on the "Dad".


  1. These are fantastic what great idea especially liking the balloon one. xx

  2. These are awesome! I have a brother who runs a bike shop so I sometimes like to make bike cards for him! What fab ideas! I especially love the first card! Such a fun scene!
