Hooray for Friday! :)
I'm popping by today, as promised, with another card that features some of the new Clearly Besotted Stamps March release. It also features some older stash I've hoarded so bonus points to me today LOL!
I know, I know I've already shown you this bike this week, but I really have fallen for it big time. (Apologies that it's sold out at the moment but I'm sure you can see why!) I love that you can customise it with a basket and even pick what you want to be flying out of the said basket. However, I stamped just the bike alone for today's card as I wanted to keep things simple. :)
- I carefully cut the sentiment stamp 'happy birthday' in half to separate the words. I know this may freak some of you out, but it really doesn't damage the stamps and they fit back together perfectly should I need to use the sentiment as one whole stamp. Promise!
- I overlapped the separate design elements of the card. The bike and both sentiment pieces overlap to help the design flow. They eye doesn't have to work too hard to take it all in.
- My strip of grey card helps to ground the bike. If it wasn't there, the bike would be simply floating and risks looking a little lost. I just couldn't allow such a thing to happen to this sweet bicycle *wink*!
