Happy birthday, motorcycle man!
I am playing around with this stamp and lovin’ it! To bad it’s on loan. I was asked to make some surprise birthday invitations with a motorcycle theme. Well, not sure what I will actually make, but this sure is nice! I like to play around with a new stamp to get the feel and to see how it stamps.
I got my inspiration today from Seize the Birthday. Similar card challenge from last week, but this time it’s for men. So, more clean. More simple. More manly. And, no frills. I think I accomplished that here.
I used a variety of retired items here. The Motorcycle stamp is retired. The greeting came from a retired stamp set, It’s Your Birthday. I have several current birthday stamp sets, but none matched the simplicity of this card. That’s just what it need. Simple. Clean. No frills. And, this retired ‘Happy Birthday’ did the trick.
The silver strip? Metal Repair Foil Tape, found at the hardware store. Pretty cool stuff. Adhesive backed and all. Kind of cool! I’ll need to practice working with it more. I ran it through using an embossing folder. Not sure what it’s called. It’s not Stampin’ Up. It looks like metal. It was hard to photograph evenly here. But, trust me, in person, it looks stellar! It’s one sweet card!
