For the first card, I created the collage around the focal point in the upper center. I wanted it too look as if the bike was peeling out.
For the second card, I added color and worked the collage up from the bottom. I also added strips with the sentiment on top. I lined the strips with a black pen to make them stand out against the busy background. RULER = clean and straight lines.
I love the collage effect. I even continued it on the inside of the cards and the envelopes.
