I had such a good time making this bicycle greeting card with the pretty fall colored flowers loaded in the basket and around the wheels.  I arranged the scene on a simple background so the bicycle was the main feature.  It is amazing to me how a handful of dies can be used to create such a pretty scene.  I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Scallop with Holes, Bicycle, Stitched Hills, Small Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.

A bicycle greeting card embellished with pretty fall flowers to complete the scene.

Card Base and Scene Layer

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the scalloped rectangle and teal cardstock to cut the background layer.
  • Apply masking tape around the borders of the scalloped layer.
  • Use Beachside ink and a blender brush to apply the blue sky background on the scalloped layer.
  • Attach the teal layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach to the card base.

 

This pretty bicycle greeting card was made entirely using die cuts.

Assemble the Bicycle and Flower Basket

  • Cut the bicycle out using aqua, gray and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the flowers using yellow cardstock and the ivy using green cardstock.
  • Color the flowers using Apricot ink and a mini applicator.
  • Apply a small dot of brown ink to the center of each flower and then form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Cut the basket in gray and color using a mini applicator and Caramel ink.
  • Attach a few ivy stems and tiny flowers to the basket using glossy accents.
  • Attach the basket to the bicycle using glossy accents.

Finish the Bicycle Greeting Card

  • Cut the stitched grass layer using green cardstock and attach it to the scene base using a strip of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the bicycle in behind the grass layer and attach using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Tuck flower and ivy sections around the tires and attach using glossy accents.

Making this bicycle greeting card was so easy using dies made Rubbernecker.
