Big Wheel Birthday

Rollin' along with a happy birthday for an awesome dude!

This card features a stamp from CC Designs on a sunshiny day with a Stampin' Up stamp, Impression Obsession sentiment, Sizzix embossing folder, and Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil.


Putting It All Together

I've had this card in my head all day.. 

I stamped the image in light tan to do a "no lines" colouring.

I used Distress ink and waterbrush to paint/colour the image. I used Glossy accents on the plastic areas of the trike and Wink of Stella on the flag.

I used the matching die to cut the image out.

I decided to use a challenge sketch as the layout for this card.

I cut grey and white panels and then cut them on a diagonal together to have a two colour panel. I decided to use a black and white paper ribbon on the divide.

I used an embossing folder on the grey cardstock to give it some texture.

On the white part of the panel, I stamped the sun with Duckling yellow and Coral Reef orange. I then stamped it with VersaMark and embossed it with clear to both have a bit of gloss for the sun and as a resist for the sky colours.

Using the blending tool with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and a stencil, I added in sky and clouds.

The sky panel with soft clouds.

To make it easier to assemble, I backed the panels with printer paper, lining up the diagonal.

I did one last dry fit with a vertical sentiment.

I stamped and embossed the vertical sentiment on acetate and trimmed it to a narrow strip. This allows the sentiment to float over the scene. Used repositional adhesive with the ribbon and acetate strip to afix their ends to the back of the scene panel before attaching the whole panel to the card base. I popped up the big wheeler with foam mounting tape.

Inside, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Big Wheels set, omitting the "happy birthday". I added flags from a Stampin' Up set.
