Who cares? You’re flyin’!

Sharing a fun card I made with an image from Just Ink Lined called Cycling Star available from Splash Crafts.

This card was made for one of my staff who has recently got into cycling and rides into work every day.  So I’ve coloured up my cycling star in colours that match the recipient’s cycle gear and added in stubble like he sports.

I kept this card very CAS and kept everything down in the bottom of the card so I could play along at AAA Cards for their up to one third challenge.  I left the sky a simply blue cardstock (white space doesn’t always have to be white!) and fussy cut my rider.  As this is a top folded card, I trimmed the top layer to expose the bottom piece of cardstock and layered up some washi tape to give the impression of a road.  I finished off with a fun chippie from Make it Crafty that I coloured up in red for contrast and doused in clear embossing powder to give it a lovely shiny enamel shape finish.

Over at the Alphabet Challenge they are looking for projects with vehicles so I am entering my human powered vehicle over there.  At CAS on Friday their current theme is birthday so I’m also linking up there.
