Wow, I have been so busy I didn’t realize there was no post in August. I really hate when I don’t get at least one crafty project or tutorial up. Sorry about that. Time just gets away from me these days. To show you just how bad it does, my card today is for my nephew’s birthday. It was in July….ugh. I know, I’m a terrible aunt. I get points for at least getting one out, right? At least I am getting my nieces out today for her September birthday.
My nephew loves motorcycles, he helps his dad “fix” the ones in his shop. So Fleurette Bloom Designs Motorcycle Racing set was the way to go. Even though the set doesn’t come with a motorcycle birthday card, it is real easy to make one with the included elements. I was intrigued by the motorcycle box, but sending it all the way to Ohio wasn’t a good idea to me. Instead, I used elements from various parts of the kit.
I used the offset from the box to make a mat for my motorcycle and the card base. To keep the card quick and easy, the Stars and Stripes motorcycle printable (no need cutting all the little pieces of the bike and reassembling them) and the decorative bike pieces from the SVG (made into a Print n’ Cut) gave the motorcycle a dimensional, pieced together look fast. The flag shape and sentiment (made by me) was added to the cycle offset card base along with the kit’s highway lane stripe to complete my shaped motorcycle birthday card.
For the inside, I added a sentiment on another offset. Adds a nice little touch. I really hope that kid likes his card. Chances are he will probably destroy it within an hour.
