Bicycle Trio

I'm back today to share another project for the Splitcoast Love Fest challenges. This one was for the day 9 "A Little Love" challenge sponsored by Taylored Expressions.

I created a trio of 3x3 notecards using the In the Park stamp set. I'd forgotten just how fun it is to make small notecards and how quickly they come together!

I started with a card base of Kraft cardstock then added a layer of Berrylicious, which I ran through my swiss dots embossing folder. Then I stamped the bicycle image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured the bikes with copic markers. No fancy shading...just straight colouring, which is why I forgot to take a picture of the markers I used. I used my Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the images and stitched them in place. The I used my Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the Orange Fizz and Wild Cherry sentiment flags. I attached them along the bottom of the cards then added Orange Fizz and Wild Cherry buttons tied with Hemp Cord.

Here's the orange bike:

Here's the red bike:

And here's the blue bike (my favorite of the three eventhough my bike in real life is red):

Here are the supplies I used:

These are so sweet! I love the different colored banners on each card and the twine is perfect with the kraft. AND your circle stitching is amazing!
