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!
Loving all things blue, I just love this card/folio, Kathy. The wandering ivy paper collection is definitely a “must have” on my wish list. Your combinations of patterned paper, stickers and ephemera come together so beautifully throughout. The digital bicycle from Polly sets a delightful theme. tfs
This is a beautiful card that brings to mind carefree days in the spring. Where ARE these days??? Love the blue papers, and as always, you share your gift of layering these with the best details. I love that keyhole on the tag and your soft, fluffy bow. The pearl centers on the flowers are such a great detail, and I love the surprises inside! I’m delighted to get to see a few of your posts on this rainy Sunday morning! Sending hugs!
…Today I love Blue!!!!! OXO
Today…..I love blue! OXO
Hi Kathy …luv your bicycle card. Your colors are so calm and relaxing! And yes it most definitely is the little things in life!…. All your details are just beautiful! Have a great weekend. Hugs Suzy Q
Your layers are just amazing. I always forget what size I cut and end up with several of the same size! lol this is a lovely card and made with our favourite colour 🙂 Hope you have a lovely weekend. I hope to try this new Resist Spray with some Oxide inks this weekend 😉
Hi Kathy another beautiful card with lots going on. I do love this card stock very much, I find it quite peaceful. I’m sure this will be useful for male/ female especially with little adaptions. Love how you always make it a little gift too. I love all 3 cards you have done with this paper, I just need to watch the video to the middle one. Enjoy your weekend my friend, I hope the weather is kind to you xx
Beautiful, ditto ditto ditto from my last post. LOL I have a question… that little area at the top of the card where it has the white showing, its the scored area. Is it possible to cover that area? If I did that I think I would layer my bottom layer on one of the inside panels to cover that area and score it to fit. But would this hinder the fold of the card? also one could use a border sticker (if it fit) from the sticker sheet. Love this collection. Going to check out the little birdie website today!TFS
What a darling card, Kathy! I love the idea of putting treats in the cards and am going to try and make some for my friends and family as presents. As you said the card IS the gift. So much love and care going into your creations. I have never heard of the Buttermint tea, I must try it!
