Howdy-do all! I was making a birthday card for my Sister-in-law and I wanted to incorporate 3 elements; first a bicycle, she loves biking, second a floral background so I could enter it in the Unity Stamps January challenge and finally I wanted to foil the bicycle. I love this image from Unity’s set Enjoy The Ride!

Enjoy The Ride

I used the flower cluster from Angie Girl’s Dream With Your Heart on the background mat. I colored them in using colored pencils and highlighted with gel pens and stamped “birthday wishes” from the Birthday Wishes Peeps set from Unity.

When I foiled the bicycle image I used Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder, then after heat setting it (which makes it sticky) I used a combo of Ranger Rose Gold foil which came in a multi pack of several gem tones and whatever areas didn’t initially adhere I used TheraWeb silver foil and just kept dabbing here and there to achieve the look I wanted. I was very happy with the results, I hope she likes it too!

Thank you for stopping by!
