Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Spring is finally here, and we’re all so happy to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. This Springtime Bicycle Greeting card was inspired by childhood memories of that first glorious bike ride after the long winter. We lived at the top of a big hill, and I can still remember the feeling of exhilaration as I sped downhill, hair flying, legs pumping and the wind whistling in my ears. We would ride all day and never get tired. Oh, to be young again!
April Ribbon Club Assortment: Aqua and Coral Mix
The April Ribbon Club Aqua and Coral Mix are perfect for spring! They also happen to go beautifully with these Prima “Something Blue” papers that I found languishing in the Closet of Shame. Coral Rose Bold Diamond Print Satin ribbon makes a great header for this fun card, especially when it’s topped with white crochet lace.
This 5″ x 7″ side fold card has a slight cutaway edge. Sometimes it is fun to let the inner design paper peep through!
This poufy bow is tied with Aqua Plaid Ribbon. It’s not just another pretty face! Use ribbon to pick up on other colors in your design. Here, it pulls out the aqua tones in the striped paper and the bicycle wheels. It’s topped with pretty flowers for the same reason.
Let’s Peek Inside this Springtime Bicycle Greeting Card
Layer up those paper scraps on your work desk and use them to decorate the inside of your card! I was afraid my sentiment would not fit on this little journal tag. Prevent this problem by stamping onto tissue paper. Then, tear around the sentiment, and glue in place. Turn a journal card into a pocket by leaving one open edge. Then tuck in a teabag or other small treat.
Have you played with your new ribbon club assortment yet? I think the colors and patterns are scrumptious, and I can’t wait to use it again. Hooray for spring!
Thanks for stopping by!
