Motorcycle Birthday Card

I am SO loving this motorcycle stamp. I made this card for my nephew. I don't know if he liked motorcycles but the card screams "masculine!" It's so difficult to find images to make nice masculine cards with. SO I'm running with this card! I think he's going to like it too!

I used Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla and Night of Navy card stock. I also used new "Newsprint" Designer Paper on the second panel/layer. I sponged the edges with Always Artichoke.

On the motorcycle I colored in a few parts using Night of Navy and a blender pen. I also used the Color Spritzer Tool to make the Night of Navy splatter marks on the front of the card. It only takes a few poofs on it and your card is splattered. If you have never used one you should practice on scrap paper first to get the feel of it. Keep a nice distance from your work too helps. And how hard and quick you squeeze the bulb gives you different effects. That is why you should play with it first. It's a lot of fun once you know what you are doing!

The "happy birthday" is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. I LOVE that set because every word/phrase in it fits in the Word Window Punch. And what you punch out fits on top of the "Modern Label" punch. It gives a fancy look to the card.

I am happy with the way the card turned out but mostly I like the way it opens. It's SO different. I don't often find cards that I really like the unusual way they open but this one is GREAT!!

The measurements for this card are as follows:

The base of the card, the Night of Navy is cut 4-1/4" x 9" and scored at 3-1/2". The Always Artichoke piece is cut 9-3/4" x 3-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". And you decorate as desired. Refer to the photo for taping. The long pieces get taped together and the smaller pieces get folded in the front, one over the other. It's not as bad as it sounds, really!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
