This Motorcycle stamp featured on the page 31 of the Summer Mini catalogue is a must have!
Whatever the occasion, if you need a card for the boys and men in your life, this stamp fits the bill. This card is for my 11 year old nephew who turns 11 this week. Happy Birthday, Devon!
To make this card, I stamped the Motorcycle and a birthday greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto Glossy White cardstock with Black StazOn ink. After colouring the image with markers, I layered it onto Brushed Silver, Real Red and Basic Black cardstocks all slightly larger than the last.
I ran a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock through my Big Shot machine with the new Square Lattice embossing folder also in the Summer Mini catalogue on page 24. Using my mat pack and piercing tool, I added three Real Red brads in the lower right corner. To finish the card, I layered a piece of Real Red cardstock on the the Basic Black card and assembled the pieces.
As I was making this card, I asked my son what a good colour is for a motorcycle. He runs in very excitedly and asks when I am buying a motorcycle. Although the stamp was a bit of a disappointment after thinking he was getting the real thing, he did agree to colour this card for me. Thanks Liam!
