British biker

Hi everyone!
It feels a bit weird posting this card having just watched the Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah. I have a nephew who loved the Olympics and is a fan of cycling. This Lili of the Valley digi was perfect for his birthday card and I made a voucher holder to match.

I think the papers are die cut were from Papermania. Lots of layers and Kraft card which I think can help add to the boy feel.
I added background colour to the LOTV die cut by daubing distress inks onto it.
I went for a single paper for the inside.

The sentiment stamp is also LOTV- I do love their circular sentiments.

This is the holder I made for the voucher. I clipped the crown and ribbon (recycled from a gift I received) to the voucher to pull it out like a tag.

And this is the back!

I would like to enter the following challenges

    Both the card and the holder are fabulous! Thanks for sharing your wonderful project with us at 613 Avenue Create.


    BTW I am sure your nephew is going to love it! Baseball survived Pete Rose, and Cycling was not damaged by Lance Armstrong. Only Lance Armstrong was damaged by Lance Armstrong.
