Anniversary Bike Card

This Anniversary bike card has a stamped repeated background and a fun color trio! Color coordination is a great way to create a fun card that your recipient will love.

As my partner and I neared our 10 year anniversary, I wanted to make a card that reminded us of one of our first dates as well as the promise of a future full of adventures, so I made this bike-themed card!

Stamping the bicycle from the new Fun on Wheels stamp set multiple times is a fun way to create a background for the featured bike which is die-cut and popped up on vellum with the sentiment banner.

How to make an Anniversary Bike Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Calypso Coral cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, folded at 4-1/4”
    • Scraps for featured bike and sentiment banner
  • Smoky Slate: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Vellum: 2” x 3”
  • Blueberry Bushel: scraps for bike wheels

Stamp the Repeated Background:

  • Using Lost Lagoon and Blueberry Bushel ink, stamp the bicycle multiple times on the Smoky Slate layer, making sure you clean your stamp between the inks.

TIP: To evenly stamp the bicycles, stamp the center bike with one color, and stamp the corner bikes with the same color. Then clean the stamp and switch to your other color to finish stamping your bike background.

Make the featured element:

  • Cut a fun edge at the bottom of the vellum banner.
  • Using Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel cardstock, die-cut a bicycle. Glue the wheels to the frame, and then glue the whole bike to the top of the vellum banner.
  • Lastly, stamp the sentiment using Blueberry Bushel ink onto the Calypso Coral banner. To make this an anniversary card, I didn’t ink up the “you” (which can also be done with a small piece of post-it note or inking up the stamp with a stampin’ write marker) and used the stampin’ write marker to write in “we” after I had stamped it.

Tip: It’s okay to make your stamps how you want them! Edit a word or two so it says what you are thinking.
