The challenge was to make a Father's Day project. I don't really do Father's day things because I don't talk to my dad, but the chance to win a Cricut made me make one just because. If you are like me, making a masculine card is not that easy! It's so hard to not add bows, sparkles, pink, and flowers! But, I managed.
I decided to make something that I thought my husband would like. Maybe I'll save it for a few years til we have kids. lol The motorcycle image is from Cricut "Going Places" I cut it at 2.5 inches and used the shadow feature as well. I ran the green paper through my Cuttlebug using the "Diamond Plate" embossing folder. I needed some sort of pattern in there, so I used the Stampin up skull paper since it's still manly. After embossing, I realized I couldn't really stamp the sentiment on the base, so luckily I had a Father's Day stamp that ended up fitting perfectly on the motorcycle. It's from Stampin Up "Well Scripted".
I still needed ribbon somewhere since I don't feel like I completed a card w/o it for some reason. But I didn't want a bow, so I decided to use a criss cross pattern with black ribbon. Took a little longer, but I like how it turned out. Then to add some dimension, I put buttons for the wheels.
