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.
