Birthday Bicycle Card with Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD
Hello, Friends! I have such a fun card to share with you today! It seems I never have enough birthday cards, no matter how many I make. So I recently went to work making some with my Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD, and pretty papers from our Jumbo Halloween download. Yes, you read correctly… I used Halloween papers to make this pretty spring birthday card! Take a look:
The “Star Rider” image is from the Typography CD, and prints out in black and white. I love that vintage high wheeler bicycle, and just colored it in with some chalks and inked the edges. The soft green check paper is from the Halloween download, and I had just a snippet of paper leftover from a Thanksgiving project that I used to mount my rosette “wheels” on. I added some fun gears and game spinners to the painted and distressed rosettes, then wrapped jute string around them for a fun, industrial look. A perky little bow made with black micro gingham finished the card off nicely. Here’s a peeky at the inside:
I journaled the (slightly corny) sentiment on the computer and layered it with more papers, a torn piece of washi tape, and a fun industrial clock from the Typography CD. Easy Peasy! It’s perfect for the bike enthusiast in your home.
