I love the sketch this week at Clean and Simple. I have been wanting to create cards with Tour de France in mind so I have come up 4 cards for this sketch, one for each jersey. If you don’t already know, in the Tour there are 4 categories where a cyclist can win a jerseys for each stage of the race and at the end of the event. Yellow which is for the lead of the general classification, Polka Dot which is for the best climber, Green is for the best sprinter and White which is for the best youth in the general classification.
I started with 4 base cards made from Basic Black. I then added a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to each card. Next I added a strip that matched each jersey. So for the Yellow Jersey, I used a yellow strip, white for the white Jersey and so on. I then added pieces of black card stock which had the lower edge punch with the scallop punch. I then stamped 4 pieces of Very Vanilla card stock with the stamp “way to go” and adhered them the base cards. Next I punched out 4 owls and adhered the matching jerseys to them. I then adhered the completed owls and Paris stamp to the base cards.
I am going to use these cards for my children when they get there next school report.
