Motorbike Card

I always struggle to make cards for men, and never know what to do, so I was really happy when I saw the Die for the motorbike by Marianne's Design so just had to buy it from Ann's Paper Art, I stitched APA Pattern No a628, I decided not to prick all the holes to stitch and to add some gun metal gems for where beads are supposed to be, after cutting the Die, I then used a silver ink pad to highlight the embossed parts, I used my Gutermann threads No's 1219 dark grey, and 1197 navy blue to match the Die cut, I used a gun metal coloured card and a navy blue to do the matting and layering to bring the whole card together, I cut out some cogs in gun metal card and added them to the corners to finish..

My Birthday Cards

I was so excited to see all the beautiful birthday cards that I received last week, I just had to share them all with you, each and everyone is a work of art, they have been the first thing that I looked at every morning when I got up, I want to thank every one of you that took the time to make me a beautiful keepsake, there are a lot to look at, I felt that each and everyone should be shown separately to see their beauty.
