Ageless Biker

Welcome

I made this card for my older  brother who has his "superannuation card" - or should that be his super senior card?-  and still frequently rides his motorbike(s) - yes, he has more than one!!


He is a great fan of CAS, so that gave me two good starting points.  The motorbike was cut using silver card and an unidentified die... 

I cut a piece of tan card with a stitched edge, splattered it with silver, and placed the bike on that


I embossed a M/B stitched rectangle  to form a frame for the card, 'stretching' it as I went.


I sponged on some clouds using Memento Brilliance Moonliight White ink, and silver embossed the vertical greeting.
As can be seen in the above photo, the card I used also had a slight texture to it. 


I finished the inside with some washi tape across the full with of the liner.

The card was appreciated, and is still on display some three months later :).

The bike, but espescially the clouds look so good! nGreat that you took a different colour card base; makes it more a card for a man...

Obviously your brother liked his card - what an accolade to have it on display for such a long time.
Great die to cut out the motorbike and love the idea of the stitching around the edge of the card. Must say though I was intrigued by the clouds, they are gorgeous - did you have a stencil of something?
Hugs, Neet xx
