This card has a little story behind it. About a week or so ago I was chosen to be a Surprise Party Guest over at Seize the Birthday #261 for the Wheels Challenge! So happy to be able to guest design with them! I also happen to have a friend whose son used to own a bike shop and still loves cycling. So I gave this card to that friend to give to her son for his next birthday. She loved it and I hope you do too. I am sharing it over at the As You See It Challenge #298, New Stuff because the most recent addition to my craft stash is this amazing pop up Shoppe die set by Concord and 9th.
I did not know that I had any sentiments having to do with wheels or bikes until the card was ready for its sentiment. I was happily surprised to find one in an Ellen Hutson set I own. The birthday sentiment is velcro-ed on a hinge I made so that it can fold down to fit in the envelope. The shop is adhered to an A2 card base and folds into an A2 envelope (although I would mail it in a bubble envelope after all of this work!) On the Concord and 9th website you can watch videos on how to make one. Really fun with all the little details you have in each set. My favorite detail is the acetate in the window and door...it makes them seem real somehow!
Come by and play along with or without the "wheels" topping at Seize the Birthday! (There are other wheel ideas such as clock "wheels" and baby strollers, a shopping cart, vehicles, a ship's wheel, wheelbarrows, doing a "wheelie" on your bike, ferris wheels, an interactive wheel card that you turn to reveal different images or sentiments...so many ways to play along! Hope to see you in the the STB gallery!
