Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #557 Bike Ride
April 18, 2019
Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #557. This week we have the color combination of Pineapple Punch, Blueberry Bushel, and Granny Apple Green.
The only thing not retiring from my card are the colors! I'm going to hate seeing some of these products go away. Here is my card.
Bike Ride and the Build a Bike Dies just did not see enough love from me. I'm happy I chose them for today's challenge. They are retiring.
Start the card with a base of Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4. The Best Route Designer Series Paper is also retiring. This bike paper is cut to the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Glue to the front of the card base. A strip of the Pineapple Punch striped paper that is 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 if added just below the half way point. This is from the 2018-2020 In Color DSP packs that are retiring.
The Granny Apple Green layer is 3 x 4 1/4. The Whisper White layer is 2 7/8 x 4 1/8. It's embossed with the Polka Dots Basic folder. Guess what? It's retiring! Add these layers to the center of the card.
Stamp the bike parts on Whisper White scraps. The frame is in Granny Apple Green ink and the two wheels are in Blueberry Bushel ink with Pineapple Punch circles added in. Cut out the frame to hold the basket from Granny Apple Green cardstock. The basket outline is stamped in Crumb Cake and the filler is Crumb Cake stamped off. Stamp the flowers outline in Crumb Cake and the insides in Pineapple Punch. Use the Build a Bike Dies to cut out all the parts. You'll have to fussy cut those flowers along the bottom. On a piece of Blueberry Bushel designer paper stamp again the handlebars, seat, and petals. Stamp in blueberry. Fussy cut these and add them to the bike. Cut out the handlebar streamers from the same paper. Assemble the bike and add it to the card with dimensionals.
The saying is from Best Birds. It's retiring! Stamp in Blueberry Bushel and punch out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, retiring. The frame is punched from Granny Apple Green with the 1 3/8" Scallop Punch. Add with dimensionals.
I think this makes a really cute card. With spring arriving it's perfect!
