Corner rounder, X-Press It Blending Cardstock, paper trimmer, mounting tape, black cardstock, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Versamark Ink, Detail Black Embossing Powder, heat tool, mini dots, Silver Ice Stickles, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers (Bike - C3, C5, R24, Flowers -  YG67, G99,  RV10, RV23, Vase - B21, B23, B4, B26, B29) 

Create a top fold card by cutting heavy white cardstock measuring  4in. x 11 inches. Score and fold at 5 1/2 inches.   Cut the designer paper from the Young At Heart Paper Collection  at 3 3/4 in. x 5 1/4 inches.   Use a corner rounder on the corners and sponge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere to the card base with double sided tape for extra strength.   

Stamp the Young At Heart bike image 2 times with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Cardstock.   Color  the  focal image with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers with the following color combo -  (Bike - C3, C5, R24, Flowers - YG67, G99,  RV10, RV23, Vase - B21, B23, B4, B26, B29).  Color the big wheel only on the second image.

Die cut the images with the coordinating die and cut 3-4 additional images from black cardstock.  Cut the large wheel away from the black cardstock images and from the  second white image (the one with only the  large wheel colored).    Layer a black large wheel on top of the wheel on the focal image. (That is the image you colored completely).  A mini dot at the center of the wheel can be placed between each black layer.  You can add 3 or 4 layers to the large wheel according to your preference.  You will have one white bike image that has only the wheel colored.  Cut the large wheel away from the image and adhere it to the top of the black cardstock.   This will give the large wheel a lot of dimension and draw the eye to the bike.  Apply Silver Ice Stickles sparingly as shown in the picture. Set aside to dry.   

Stamp the "Journey" image with Versamark Ink and apply Detail Black Embossing Powder.   Heat set and allow to cool.   Die cut with the coordinating die set.  I did not add the extra layers of cardstock to the sign because I wanted the bicycle to "POP".    the bicycle and sign can now be adhered to the card.   For a final touch, add a drop of Nuvo Ebony Crystal Drops to the center of each wheel.
