The sentiments in the Exercise Grumplings stamp set just crack me up. The "my new exercise routine: diddly squats" sentiment might be my favorite. (Maybe because it's not that far from my personal reality?)
The card design was inspired by Can You Case It #151. I found the Cut & Paste papers from My Mind's Eye in my paper stack and thought the colours were great for an exercise card. Then I spotted the paper with the bikes on it, which reminds me of a spinning bike, so it thought it tied up nicely with the theme as well.
I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and then overstamped it in VersaMark so that I could emboss it with clear powder. It gives it a nice shine and dimension. I die-cut the sentiment with the Stitched rectangles Stackables dies, matted it with Going Grey cardstock and popped up my colored image (which I handcut). Summer Starfruit satin ribbon and Regals candy dots were added, and to mimick the sketch, I added two wooden arrows on the left side of the main panel.
The card base was stamped with the Timeless Textures stamp set (one of my personal must-have sets) to add texture.
