Green Bikes


I needed a masculine card recently and this resulted - basically assembled from my 'promise' (scrap) box.

I cannot remember when I stamped the side panel, but it was on the back of a piece of card that had once been used for demo scrapbook page.

The sentiment was stamped with silver hologram ep to add a wee bit of understated bling. The photograph does not do the silver justice, but it does show some of the 'twinkle'.

The dot accents were small punched circles of the base card, adhered to the card and then covered with glossy accents. 

I hope the recipient likes it as much as I do.

  1. Lovely card Maxine. It is great to use up those left over pieces.

  2. Wonderful masculine card and yes, I do love all that green!!! You always do the best embossing too and know it shines. Love your card!

  3. It's a great masculine card! Love the combination of the pattern paper with the subtle stripes in the border paper. Good pairing of designs. I just learned recently that this kind of bicycle is called a penny farthing (I think I got the name correctly!) in the UK. It's a delightfully vintage image I think, and your sentiment treatment looks very nice with the composition & super use of your snippets! TFS & Hugs
