Ronnie's off on two wheels

When I saw this photo of a grandnephew having just set off on his two wheeler I knew exactly what image would be perfect for his birthday card.

It was this one from Lili of the Valley which I bought as a coloured digital image.  The spotted backing paper was also a digital download from the Nitwits Collection Candles and Cakes.

Spellbinder plain square dies and Sue Wilson's noble square dies were used to die cut and layer the images and stitching was added to the borders.


A Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and die set was used to decorate the edges of some of the mats with bicycle wheel images and it was also used to add the bicycles and the on the go sign as embellishments. Tonic dies were used to make up the Happy Birthday banner and also the number 4.

To personalise the card for the birthday boy the letters for his name were die cut from a Tattered Lace die and added to layered bunting punched out using a Stampin' up punch.

Hopefully Ronnie is enjoying his new found freedom on wheels during the summer holidays.

Thanks for reading
