Blooming Blue Bicycle Greeting Card with Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy
Hello, Friends! Happy Friday! I’m back with another card that I made while I was on my “break” from design team assignments. I made this Blooming Blue Bicycle Greeting Card with the Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy Collection and ephemera pack as well. But the “Blooming Bicycle” focal image is from Polly’s Paper Studio Etsy Shop. This one has a really fun, springtime vibe.
As you can see from this photo, I added loads of distressed layers, blossoms, ribbon and a vintage button to this 5″ x 7″ card.
A cluster of Little Birdie Crafts Flowers add the “Bloom” to this Blooming Blue Bicycle card. The ones with beaded centers are “Jessica” ivory flowers. The polka dot flower is called “Printed Florence Petals.” I’m not sure where you can find these in stores, but you can visit the Little Birdie Crafts Website to find them. These were given to me as a gift at CHA, and I just love them!
The bow cluster is more of that luscious Ivory Checkerboard Satin Ribbon combined with Ivory Burlap String and a vintage button from my stash. If you’re new to tying bows, I really recommend this ribbon as it is very soft, making it easy to work with.
Blooming Blue Bicycle Greeting Card: A Peek Inside
This card is very similar in style to the one I shared with you on Monday.
I decorated the gift card wallet with another digital image and scraps of the designer paper. The “Wandering Ivy” collection kit comes with a sticker sheet, which I used to add the title.
Inside, there’s a tea bag and a chocolate treat.
Once again, I used up my scraps to make a pretty little bookmark and decorative honey stick. These cards double as gifts, so even though they take a little bit longer to make, you get a lot of “bang” for your buck.
I hope I shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use in your own crafty adventures! If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by!
