This scooter card with the scene set along the backyard fence was so much fun to make. I used the flowering vines to soften the wood fence background and added small touches of red to match the scooter by placing a few birds in scene. For this card I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Scallop, Scooter, Berries Branches, Spring Leaves, Tiny Flower Buds, Grass, Small Birds and Wood Fence Background.
The Fence Background Layer, Grass and Card Base
- Cut an A2 sized card base using red cardstock.
- Use white cardstock to cut a rectangle layer for the fence.
- Secure the stamp and cardstock in the MISTI, apply dark brown ink and stamp the image.
- Apply the light brown ink to the wood fence layer by swiping the ink pad directly over the paper.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the fence layer and attach it to the card base.
- Cut two sections of grass using green cardstock and use the scallop die to cut the bottoms to match the fence layer.
- Attach the back grass section to the fence layer using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the front grass section and attach it to the fence layer.
- Cut the scooter sections using red, black and gray cardstock.
- Assemble the tire sections and attach them together using glossy accents.
- Attach the tires to the scooter base using glossy accents.
- Use rolled up strips of 1/4″ double stick tape to attach the fenders to the scooter base.
- Finish the scooter by attaching the trim pieces using glossy accents.
The Flowering Vines
- Cut four branch sections using white cardstock and apply dark brown ink to the branches using a wet baby wipe.
- Use green cardstock to cut the leaves and yellow cardstock to cut the tiny flower buds.
- Place the leaves and tiny flowers face up on the molding pad. Form the leaves using the leaf tool and the flower using a small tipped stylus.
- Attach the leaves and flowers to the branches using glossy accents.
- Arrange the branches up one side of the fence and flowing down from the top and attach them in place using glossy accents.
Finish the Scene
- Cut the small birds using red cardstock and use a black marker to color their beaks.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the scooter, tuck it in behind the front grass section and attach it to the fence base,
- Apply small piece of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them around the scene for the finishing touch.
