It Takes Two to Tandem

Never been on one, but this was the perfect image to put on my 16th wedding anniversary card to my bicycle-loving husband. I stamped the image and the teeny tiny sentiment on the die-cut with the help of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement.

I was very much inspired by my friend LeeAnn’s Old Fashioned Quilt card to make this distressed-looking background. The 1-1/4″ squares were adhered to a 5″ square piece of card stock which was then run through the Big Shot with the scallop square die (I used the “leftovers” to decorate the inside of my card). Then the scalloped square was dry-embossed with the polka dots EF and the dots lightly sanded to make them stand out more.

Thanks for stopping by!
