Motorcycle Make

Welcome

I am sorry I have not been visiting your blogs much, but I am still having some problems with my eyes, and am not having a lot of computer time.

I needed a masculine card in a short time, and I had recently received a bundle of unidentified dies, and this motor bike was amongst them, 


so I ran it through the cuttlebug with a dull silver card.  As the card was a good weight, it not only cut well, it also embossed well too.  Love the detail it gave.


I heat embossed the sentiment from Avery Elle using silver ep, and mounted the bike over a black ribbon with a white stitched border to ground it, and the card was done!


I am inking this to:

Sorry to hear you're having eye problems, and pray that it will ease very soon. In the meantime, this is a wonderful masculine card with that motorcycle die. It's very effective against the dark background, and I love that border treatment. The script sentiment looks great with the motif too. Take care, God Bless, and have a good weekend. TFS & Hugs

Maxine...This is such a wonderful masculine card. Great die-cuts here. We are truly blessed that you joined our Challenge earlier this month at Word Art Wednesday. There's still time to join our current Challenge and we'd love to see back. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Isaiah 43:10 which says, “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Have a great day!
