Spellbinders Bicycle Tutorial

Hello friends, I am sharing a tutorial for Spellbinders, combining a few of the newer Die sets to create a summer scene.  Bikes with baskets have made their way back on trend and it just has to be said - this one is perfect with it's basket on the front.

1. Cut/emboss one grass edge from the Posie Parts Happy Grams using cream card stock.
2. Use the negative Die as a Stencil , sponging three strips of grass onto the lower portion of the card front using Bamboo Leaves.

3. Emboss Kraft card stock using the Picnic Embossing Folder.
4. Cut to size and lightly sand using a sanding block.
5. Adhere to the card front just above the top row of grass.
6. Adhere sponged grass die cut using liquid glue.

7. Cut/emboss one Bicycle using recycled cereal box
8. Cut/emboss two clouds from the Rise N Shine Die D-Lite using white card stock, sponge with grey ink before removing from the Die.
9. Colour the bike with an ombre effect using Teal Zeal Ink.

10. Adhere the bicycle to the card front - onto the grass strip, using liquid glue.
11. Cut/emboss three pink flowers, 3 green leaves from the Bicycle Die D-Lite Etched Dies.
12. Cut/emboss one Harry Small Dog from the Dog Club Die D-Lites Etched Dies.
13. Sponge the inside of the Harry Small Dog using Desert Sand ink before removing the die cut.
14. Arrange and glue the flowers and leaves into the bike basket.
15. Adhere Harry Small Dog to the bike carrier.
16. Cut clouds in half and attach 3 pieces using double sided tape
17. Adhere computer generated sentiment using double sided tape.
