Hello and thanks for visiting!
Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge over @ TGIFChallenges this week. Please click the hyperlink to visit the challenge. These sweet bicycles from the Country Floral Lane DSP from the January - April 2023 Mini Catalogue, caught my eye for the long rectangular strip on the card. I created a Belly Band with the greeting that for the vertical rectangle of the sketch.
*** The Trix ***
* Create a money holder with a 7 x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock scored at 3 and 6 1/2. Fold in the 3" section to create a pocket for the money, adhere with glue on the sides only. *Trix* use a punch to cut a space to pull our the cash :)
* Let the pattern on the dsp dictate the size. I had a 6 x 6 piece of dsp from our Paper Share, I loved the floral heart border above and bellow the line of bicylces, so the dsp became a 3 1/8 x 6" band.
* Use up the cardstock scraps - the belly band is a 1 1/4" x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet, (cut when I created the 7 x 10 card base) The scrap Petal Pink dsp is an 1/8 of an inch smaller than the Sweet Sorbet belly band. The hearts are from scraps of complimentary dsp and cut out with the County Bouquet Punch, #160382
* Stamp the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set, #158701 with Sweet Sorbet ink. Embellish with 2022 -2024 In Color™ Matte Decorative Dots
