Chocolate Baroque 15 minute cards - Edwardian Man on Bike and The Road Travelled

Edwardian Man on bike

 Today I have two cards to show you which should take no longer than 15 minutes to make.
Always handy when you realize you have forgotten a birthday.

Stamps used: Chocolate Baroque  Eccentric Edwardian

Stamp the bicycle onto the card base and onto a piece of masking tissue.
Cut the mask out. It is an easy shape so doesn't take too long.
Mask the cyclist and over stamp the image with the large text stamp with sepia ink. Remove mask.
Stamp the message tag.
This was then trimmed to a 14cm. (5 1/2inches) square and mounted onto a 15cm.  (6 inch) card base.

My second card uses a favourite set of mine : Woodland Dreams

    This was one of my very early purchases from Chocolate Baroque, which I still enjoy using regularly.

The background is made with Distress inks: peeled paint, bundled sage and dusty concord.
This has been over-stamped with one of the many tree designs that are in this set.
The bird branch and extra branch have been stamped with Versafine,  and a bit of colour added to the berries.

I have put Glossy Accents on the bird and berries, but I realized this would take longer than the 15 minutes, by the time you have stamped the message and mounted the card up. Just a way to emphasize these elements , if you wish to.

There are several other lovely samples on the design team blog at the moment which will take 15 minutes or less to make. Always useful if time is short.

Thanks for visiting and happy crafting.
Bye for now.
