Hi there 🙂 This card was sort of bittersweet to make. Sweet, because I used a KennyK stamp (and I’ve neglected my KennyK collection for far too long!), and bitter, because the store is closed, and the stamps are no longer available 🙁 I colored up Bike Kid with my Copic and SN markers, then die cut the image out, leaving the front of the bike wheel overhanging, to imply movement. I used this fabulous sketch from Feeling Sketchy as inspiration for the layout
The background paper that I used is so old…..years and years ago, I used to do A LOT of online swapping, in a swap community that I belonged to. This paper was a piece that I received back then….so it’s at least 12 – 15 years old!!! I cut the Happy Birthday sentiment with a Poppy Stamps die, and wrapped twine around the top, middle and bottom of the base. I cut some banner shapes with a die from an Elizabeth Craft set, and attached them to the back of the image. I then popped up the entire middle part with some foam dots, and glued everything to a blue background. It was great fun making this card, and so nice to have another masculine card handy 🙂
