Motorcycle


I don't make commission cards but occasionally someone catches me at a weak moment. The card is for Motorcyclist fan and first I had to find an image. Finally I found the image from Just Inklined called Born to be Wild.
Took some working out how to colour it and then work out what bits I wanted to layer, its not like person with arms and legs. Too be honest that was the easy part than I had to make a mans card with it.
I so pleased Nikki made me buy these cog dies perfect size for a card, also I cut down the Joy coner to make the corner.
Penny Black Birthday die and the numbers and the today came from the same place as the cogs they have All Occasion Dies on the packet and I brought them at a Craft Show. It didn't help when I handed the card over I had put the wrong age on. Luckily the seven came off and when I cut the letters I cut the all of them rather than having tiny dies to lose but I keep them in the packet with the dies so there was an 8 already cut.


Had a bit of play with the envelope making punch and made a box for it too and added some left over cogs on the top. The lady was really pleased with it and now someone else plans to ask for a special card for an occasion coming soon. It such a worry making cards for other people because you never sure they going to like it and I know how long it takes to colour, layer, move paper and embellishments around, sticking it down.

  12. Fab card Debby. I'm glad it's not just me who worries about whether people will like what they've asked for. It really does mess with your creativity - much easier if you can just go with the flow. Had to laugh at the wrong number. Oh dear!
    Love Lea x

  19. Your card is amazing Debby, you've made that motorbike look like it is about to ride right out of the card. A brilliant job, you shouldn't worry, your cards are always spot onn but I can see where you are coming from ref all the work that goes in to making them

  25. Know where you are coming from about commissioned cards, I spend most of my time worrying about whether I have interpreted their brief properly. This is a fantastic card though Debby and I'm sure the recipient is going to be thrilled with it.

  44. Brilliant card - especially for a 70 year old biker. MY 75 year old DH still remembers his glory days and can't pass a Harley Davidson without getting a certain gleam in his eyes so that topper would make a perfect car for him too :) Elizabeth xx

  46. What a brilliant masculine card, I'm sure your friend loved it!
    I hate making cards to order too, it's so stressful!

  47. Yes, I do some commissioned cards and I always worry if they will go down well or not - so far no problems!
    And I can see why the lady was pleased with this; it's really stylish, fab colours and design and a great masculine feel to it.
    In fact, I have this image earmarked for my father-in-law's next birthday so am loving the inspiration from this card :-)
