I would like to extend Christmas greeting to my newest follower - Gerrina from the Netherlands.
I had fun making this somewhat whimsical card. I started by pulling out the bike die from my NBUS stash, and cutting it in silver.
I then decided that I wanted to put something in the basket, and found that this mouse image, (an old Penny Black stamp) when trimmed, would fit perfectly. I silver embossed the image and coloured with water colour pencils, and added Glossy Accents to the balloon.
The banners were hand cut from snippets in my 'promise box', and the sentiment panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle, from an experimental piece in there too, then embossed with silver.
Here is a close up of the bike. Note to self - put glue on finely cut images with a toothpick, and not the glue bottle nozzle. I grounded the bike by mounting it on a strip of washi tape.
Rhinestones were used to finished, and turned an otherwise nondescript card into something I am happy with.
