Birthday Bicycle(s)

Welcome

I made this card for my grandson who was turning six, and receiving a new green bike for his birthday!!


The background was stamped randomly using an image from a (now retired) Hero Arts stamp set of bicycles in Memento Pear Tart ink 


The sentiment (by Spellbinders) was cut three times, once in white, once in dark green and once in silver glitter paper, and they were stacked in that order, with the silver slightly off set to give a shadow effect. this was mounted on white card over green burlap ribbon. 


The die cut digit, by Kaisercraft was stacked in the same manner.

Part of his gift was hidden in this tin, which I cut the bottom part out of, filled with wee gifts, sealed with hot glue and then decorated.

Hi Maxine,

How perfectly you have matched those tiny green cycles with the big green cycle that your grandson will receive. I also like how nicely you have explained the layering of the sentiment and the number 6. Super card.

Love,
Monica
