Wheels

The Twofer Challenge ends tomorrow, so I'm sneaking in a last minute entry.  The theme this month is 'Wheels', using the same stamp, stencil, or die for the prompt on two different designs for two different occasions.

I am joining in the Twofer Challenge with this pair of cards.



The die I used on both cards is the Memory Box 'Vintage Bicycle' die.  On the first card I used the die with silver mirror card and layered it on a Memory Box 'Postage Square' die.  I wrapped silver thread around the corners and raised up the square on a foam sheet.  The text background paper is from Anna Marie Designs.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:


For my second card I made a good luck/thinking of you card.  I used the same die with snippets of yellow card, just die cutting the small wheel.  I backed the die cut wheels with a paler yellow card.  I added a couple of punched green leaves to the bottom lemon and raised it up on foam pads.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

  12. Beautiful Twofer cards Liz and love the way you have used the small wheel for the lemon slices and the perfect sentiment cleverly computer generated, such a great idea, and I love the embroidery thread on the corners of the pennyfarthing topper and the background sentiment dp, also the blue and silver is a pretty colour combination. x

  14. What a brilliant set of cards Liz - you would never guess they came from the same die. The penny-farthing is masculine yet still very elegant. But I love your citrus burst of lemon slices from the small wheel, and the sentiment is such fun too. Here's to a good old G&T Cheers! Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

  20. So clever, Liz! Your navy and silver design is very elegant and I love the way you wrapped the thread through the cogs of the postage stamp die! Great idea! I thought at first you had silver-embossed lines somehow. And how fun that your wheels worked perfectly for lemon slices on your second summery design?! It's another fabulous card and I concur with the message, lol! (Only make mine wodka!) Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #16! Hugs, Darnell

    1. Darnell likes Grey Goose wodka - and also the pips from the lemons. Well, that's what they did to her in Southampton when she was over! :) x
