Pink Bike card

Hi everyone, it's Holly posting today!  I have a whimsical card to share with you, and I have to admit, the pink bike just makes me smile!

I started this card with a Kraft card base and I added a layer of green gingham paper from the Prairie Chic by Bo Bunny paper pad.  Next, I cut another sheet of paper from the same pad, but the pattern was a bit too busy. What to do?

I pulled out the Texture Mesh stencil and laid it over the multicolored paper.  Then I applied some white embossing paste to the holes in the stencil with a Palette Knife.  As soon as I was done, I peeled the stencil off and immediately washed the stencil and palette knife.  I set the stenciled paper aside to dry completely for an hour.

While that was drying, I cut out the Brand New Bicycle die with pink paper.

I also stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Wishes by
Stampavie onto Kraft cardstock, and then I cut out the notches on both sides with scissors.

When the stenciled paper was dry, I very lightly dabbed some pink ink randomly over the dry embossing paste.  I then adhered this to my card, added a dark blue strip (also from the Prairie Chic by Bo Bunny paper pad ), adhered the sentiment, and then adhered the pink bike above the sentiment.

I love how you can still see the patterned paper through the white embossing paste, but it is muted and toned down.  This also gives the card a great texture without being overwhelming.

What a cute card for anyone! So colorful!! Thanks Holly!
