Craft Roulette #76

Craft Roulette #76

Hello friends! Craft Roulette is a weekly live YouTube crafting event! This week, Mary Gunn watched with the rest of us while three guest crafters made a card using the 4 randomly-selected parameters. Episode 76's parameters were: 

Project: Your favorite card

Colors: Vintage

Element: Summer Sports

Random: Weaving

Supplies used: 

  • Stamps: None

  • Dies:  Honey Bee Stamp's Bicycle Builder Honey Cuts, Simon Says Stamps' Strips 2 (for thicker vertical part of the weave, an A2-sized rectangular die in my stash

  • Paper: Patterned papers in my stash, white cardstock for the background panel

  • Ink: Tea Dye Distress Ink

  • Sprays: Altenew's Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray (for the bike)

  • Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor set

  • Liquid glue   

To make this card,  I started by gathering paper from my stash that fit the Vintage color scheme of muted colors. I then die cut out the parts of the bike (one of my favorite summer sports), making sure to cut out the body of the bike 3 times so I could glue the layers together for dimension and strength. I then sprayed the body, handle bars and wheel of the bike to add shine. I then die cut a piece of white cardstock with the A2-sized die and ran it through my die cutting machine with the stencil to add texture. (It is very subtle, and you really can't see it in the pictures.) I then wove the strips of paper and the washi tape together and glued them to the white card panel. I then glued the bike together and added it to the card base with more liquid glue. I then directly added some Distress Ink around the border of the white card base. Then I flicked random gold splatters across the card. To finish the card, I added a few light green gems to the corner of the card and glued the whole thing onto an A2 (my favorite) cardbase.

Thanks for reading!
