A dear friend asked me to make some cards with motorcycle and guitar themes. I don’t normally create with those themes, so I perused the stores for some 3D stickers I could use. I found a few, sat down to create and then realized I had no appropriate paper. And, I didn’t remember seeing what I needed. Then I remembered my cousin Robin’s challenge to use some stencils and figured I would “kill two birds with one stone.”
So, I pulled out some stencils, Dylusions Inks, giant manila tags, Ranger Archival Ink and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste and went to work. Once I finished making backgrounds, I cut the rest apart and added bits and pieces to the cards.
Many of the insides have stickers and punches in them as well, but I forgot to take photos of them before mailing.
My husband recently celebrated his 43rd birthday. This is the card I made for him ….
To see how I made this card, visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Blog … I am featured today!
By the way, Matt & I did take a ride to celebrate his birthday … to Clarkston, a town neither of us had ever been to before. He wanted to try the Union Woodshop, an award-winning restaurant that was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” and a favorite hangout of Kid Rock.
The food was amazing … I had pulled pork, smashed sweet potatoes and greens. Matt had the “non-burger” burger (he says a burger must have beef) made with pulled pork, homemade spicy sausages and homemade smoked maple bacon that was featured on the TV show.
I cannot wait to scrapbook the rest of the photos from his birthday dinner. It was a nice spur-of-the-moment trip.
