Motorcycle Card

Hey, i'm back again today with another masculine card - it seems right to feature lots at the moment, what with Fathers Day approaching this weekend. Hopefully i will inspire you to get out your craft stash and make a special card for your Dad (if you haven't done so already!)

Todays card is actually a birthday card, but with a change of sentiment you could easily create a fathers day card! I had a bit of a creative block, but with a bit of google searching a came across this beautiful design and couldn't resist CASEing it from this blog:

On a 11.5cm x 11.5cm square of 'Whisper White' card i stamped the sentiment in the top lefthand corner (from the 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' set) using 'Early Espresso' ink. Next i stamped the fab A La Carte 'Motorcycle' stamp. I inked it up with 'Early Espresso' ink and stamped it three times WITHOUT reinking the image (i used the 'Stamp-a-ma-jig' tool to carefully line it up! The bow has been created from some (sadly retired) 'Early Espresso' 'Satin Ribbon' (although you could use 'Chocolate Chip' ribbon instead.) I mounted this onto a slightly larger square of 'Early Espresso' card and then mounted it all onto a 'Crumbcake' 12.5cm x 12.5cm cardbase.

If you struggle to create cards for men, consider purchasing the 'a la carte' 'Motorcycle' stamp. It is such a lifesaver for creating masculine cards:
And its a complete bargain at £7.95!! If you'd like to make an order email me today:
