I needed a card for a customer, and it was for a young man in his mid-teens.
I was not sure of his aspirations, but figured that most young men are interested in mechanical things, so went with a motor cycle theme.
I used the image in two ways - to make a background, and for the focal point.
The focal image was embossed, cut with an oval die, and a line of red ink was run around the border before the die was removed. This was mounted offset over a maroon oval that had been treated with a gold pen.
The image was randomly stamped over the background with a distress ink (fired brick), and a frame drawn through those images.
The opposite side of the card was covered with some textured wallpaper.
A simple sentiment embossed and mounted like the focal image finished the card.
