"On yer bike!"

Hello everyone

its Friday which means its time form a post from little me, Mel and I wanted to share with you the most stunning summer themed paper Shoreline from American Crafts!

I'm such a paper magpie and these papers just needed to be in my stash and I knew they would make the perfect birthday card for a special friend

The wee card is a "Z" fold and is soooo simple to make
Here's how

I used the lush papers, card blanks and some yellow card stock from my stash to make the main card and everything else I used to decorate was in my stash too

Firstly I took 2 to 6x6 card blanks folding them and then taking one and cutting an inch of one edge and then cutting the other card down to 4.5" square

Then I started decorating the inside and front panel of the large card by layer with the yellow card and the Shoreline papers

after that I stuck the small card blank to the inside of the large card with the opening going the opposite way. This forms the "Z" shape of the card, then decorate

I then used my spellbinders to make a small ornate frame for a birthday sentiment, you could use the Nestabilities Labels 25 to get the same effect and even better is they are on sale!

Then using my trusty Silhouette cameo I cut out this layered Bike added gems and flowers to the basket and highlighting with a black marker

and after added some Craftwork Sentiments and more gems the card is finished

I hope to see you all try the "Z" fold card and if you do leave a wee link in the comments section so I can see what you have done!
