Spirits of Christmas Past - Storefront Card

This is another project from SVGcuts.com, their SVG Collection called Spirits of Christmas Past . Lots of details on this card. The old fashion bicycle is part of the "past" and fit well on this unusual shaped card. It actually looks like a file folder. The stamped message on the signage, inside and back is from Punkin Patch Holiday Traditions Stamp set. Finished card size is 7" x 6". To add character to this card, all edges had been sponged with SU Close to Cocoa ink.

Inside Message:

Back of card:

This card had a lot of interesting embellishments - so each layer is photograph before the card is assembled. The window is stamped with a wood background. White eyelets with silver elastic string threaded through (if I were to make this again, I would probably eliminate it since it really doesn't show up once the bicycle is layered on top). The DSP is a retired pattern that is embossed.
This is a terrible photo of he bicycle.so sorry: small and large silver brads were added, then popped with dimensionals

And the signage: only half of the signage is popped with dimensionals since the other half hangs over the left side of the card.
